If you are a kitchen fitter or looking to have a new kitchen fitted, then you will likely be considering using soft close drawer boxes for this project. As a leading supplier of furniture fittings, our soft close drawer boxes are very popular and we wanted to share more information about the systems that are available and how to fit them.

What are soft close drawer boxes?

Also known as soft close drawer runners or slides, this feature stops drawers from slamming by gently pulling the drawer closed. This pulling motion is where the term 'soft close' comes from.

What are the benefits of soft close drawer systems?

Soft close drawer slides help minimise any slamming noise from the drawer. With the drawer soft closing, this can also preserve the life of the drawer and protects the finish of the cabinetry. The soft closing feature also means that the drawer will always be neatly closed rather than left partially open.
