Mobile Shelving Maximizes Space in Manhattan Showroom

Häfele America Co. manufactures and distributes high-end residential and commercial hardware. They recently designed a new showroom in Manhattan to showcase their innovative fittings, slides, and other products and needed help figuring out how to store their materials in a beautiful way. The design team was challenged with the new space as it was smaller than the previous showroom. In addition to the smaller space, the company’s product lines were expanding and more product would need to be displayed. The design team wanted every aspect of the showroom to reflect Häfele’s dedication to innovation and premium quality. So they called the experts.

A compacting showroom display was the perfect solution for this retail location. The display consists of a powered high density mobile system with custom millwork. The aisles can be opened and closed with the push of a button, making it easy to access all materials and samples. Space was created at eye level with elegant built-in lighting to beautifully display hardware, and drawers were added below for more hidden storage.

The clients were thrilled with the end result of the compacting showroom display. Christine Bengston, Senior Marketing Manager for Häfele America Co. who oversaw the design project said  It’s transformative. You can be standing in one aisle, talking about small items like hinges, and then you simply press a button and walk two feet over and you’re talking about massive sliding architectural hardware. This system is a key element in our showroom, providing us the flexibility for transforming our space.”

Bengston added that the Spacesaver system integrates perfect with Häfele’s mission and philosophy, providing an impressive and innovative experience to showroom visitors. “It’s always a ‘wow’ moment for our customers.” she said. Click here to see the system in action.

7 Reasons to Spec Modular Casework over Millwork

7 Reasons to Spec Modular Casework over Millwork

When most people are designing spaces in their office such as mailrooms, work/copy rooms, kitchens, reception areas, and more, they usually think of custom millwork. However, there is another option that is modular, cost competitive, SCS Certified, and lifetime warranty backed. Modular casework is an excellent option for offices and there are many reasons to choose it over custom millwork – here are seven.

1. Factory Produced
Modular Casework is manufactured in an environment with computer controlled machinery that can make precision cuts and guaranteed measurements.


2. Quickly Installed
When modular casework is shipped, it is fully assembled and ready to install. This cuts the installation time to about half that of traditional millwaork, saving time and money.


3. Reconfigurable
In order to reconfigure or relocate, the modules do not have to be damaged or disassembled. This makes it very easy to reuse when things change.


4. Repairable
The doors, drawers, hinges, and end panels or modular casework are much easier to repair than traditional millwork because their components are engineered to disassemble and reattach.


5. Depreciable
Modular Casework is treated like furniture and may be depreciable for tax purposes over a much shorter period as compared to millwork, which is classified as a leasehold improvement, thus saving you money.


6. Specifiable
Drawing millwork is a tedious, time consuming task, but Modular Casework can be drawn in software by a local representative. It is also simple to drag and drop your options into a space with ease using IBM. This assures that you get the design you want.


7. SCS Certified
All of Hamilton Sorter’s Mailroom and Modular Casework products are SCS Indoor Advantage Gold Certified for indoor air quality.
