The outdoor kitchen is quickly becoming a popular addition to the modern home. Where homeowners used to simply flip burgers, they’re now adding smokers, ovens, stoves, refrigerators, sinks, wine coolers, and more to their outdoor setup.
At first glance, you might suspect that the only place you’re going to see a Vectis™ Counterbalance is in an industrial setting, perhaps mounted on an enormous machine shield, or maybe some type of oversize industrial tank lid.
Some elements of motion control require a complex hinge design to meet rigorous industry needs and standards for your product. This is especially true for outdoor applications that endure both harsh weather conditions and repeated use (or, more likely, slamming).
When it comes to high-end kitchen appliance design, great performance is as important on the outside as it is on the inside.
There’s nothing like taking your idea to a full-service manufacturer and getting a complete solution, start to finish.
Flip-up countertops and other counterbalanced hinge solutions offer multiple advantages for hospitality spaces and other business applications.
