It's likely you've heard of Hawa AG. However, you may not know the breadth of their offerings. We wanted to highlight some of their newer systems here and call out some of the features that make this Swiss-made sliding hardware a smart option for any project.
Hawa systems are, in a word, refined. We find that their engineers' drive to minimize the visual impact of their hardware and maximize options fits perfectly with the M.O. of our designers, while the durability and ease of installation is very attractive to the call-back-averse builder. No one wants to learn twice the lesson of installing a schlocky sliding door system.
With Hawa's wide range of solutions for glass and wood doors of all sizes and functions, and (our favorite) their thorough and legible documentation, the ability is there to spec a Hawa system for any situation.
HAWA PIVOT / SLIDE SYSTEM : Concepta 20-30-50
Hey, where'd my office go?
Pivot/Slide systems are useful for creating smaller environments within larger spaces (kitchens, offices, entertainment centers, wet bar, laundry...) and being able to secure them or even just hide the mess. None of the similar systems on the market come close to having the variety of options, the ease of installment and adjustment, and the ruggedness that the Hawa Concepta offers. Their sophisticated trolley and scissor system is engineered to prevent that infuriating jamming, and to provide smooth operation even with doors weighing up to 110 lbs and reaching 9'-4" high.
Concepta also allows you to have closets with floor to ceiling doors which tuck flush with the wall without having to build cabinetry.
Do you have something to hide?
HAWA : Planfront 70
Some break out in hives when they see by-passing closet doors, but sometimes you're stuck not having the room for swinging doors. Hawa has an answer in Planfront (i.e. Plane Front). A panel starts flush with its neighbor and is then smoothly slid into the plane behind it. The panels that remain in front can either be fixed or slide on their own.
Media walls and projection screens can be hidden easily, while securing these areas is now a simple proposition. Index-d can also help provide elegant flush pulls for this and all of Hawa's sliding systems.
Here's how you can have a four panel closet which closes flush:
Hang Half-Ton Doors with Hawa's
Junior Super 500
Pack on the pounds. The new Hawa Super 500 takes up to a 1100 lb leaf without anyone having to struggle to get it moving.
Super 500 is a low profile solution which can disappear in the ceiling or be hung on a wall. Like all the other Junior sliding systems the Super 500 clearly demonstrates Hawa's Swiss precision and reliability.
Choosing a better solution shouldn't lead to bigger headaches.
Please, let us know if you're interested in further information on any of these systems. We're here to make the specification process as thorough and painless as possible for the designer, and to provide the builder with competitive pricing, informed technical support, and a smooth procurement process.
