Introducing Slidix: the cutting-edge soft-close range
We’re all about cutting-edge solutions designed with convenience and functionality in mind. We make assembly simple with performance-engineered components that offer consistent quality and are available in high volumes.
Today, we’re excited to introduce the latest addition to our range, Slidix. Slidix is a comprehensive range of soft close sliding door damper mechanisms for sliding door systems. Going beyond only furniture applications, Slidix is designed to work in a wide range of sliding doors and drawers, from wardrobes and barn doors to sliding shower doors and white goods like refrigerators.
At the core of the Slidix range is the Titus hydraulic damper. This revolutionary soft close sliding door damper mechanism offers a fully programmable/controllable damping curve, allowing users precise control over the damping action. This makes it easy to fine-tune performance to suit a specific application. But that’s not all. Here’s a little more about the Slidix family and its many benefits.
Slidix soft close sliding door damper mechanisms
Manufacturers are constantly striving to achieve the perfect blend of functionality, user experience and aesthetics. One form of technology that marries these concepts is soft-close, which we’ve discussed previously in our articles ‘Damping solutions for quiet homes’ and ‘Quality components for calm bathrooms’.
Soft-close technology has set a new standard for the way that we interact with furniture, doors and white goods in our homes, going beyond practicality to also add a luxurious finish. With Slidix, we’ve introduced a new way to achieve sophistication in the home, all underpinned by consistent performance, reliable damping and remarkable flexibility. The range’s soft close sliding door damper mechanism effectively eliminates noisy and abrupt door and drawer slams, instead offering a smooth and controlled motion.
