Germany is well-known for their commitment to producing the best products possible; their car manufacturing industry is a testament to that. They also create stunning and high end kitchen appliances which are sort after by most home owners planning a renovation. Hettich is a German family owned and operated business that has spent over 100 years perfecting the parts in your kitchen that are rarely seen but contribute greatly to how your kitchen works for you.

When you’re designing your new kitchen it’s easy to get caught up in the exciting elements such as counter tops, appliances and colour, however one of the most important features of a long lasting kitchen is often over looked.


Hinges and drawer runners might seem a given, after all you need your cupboards and drawers to open and close, does it really matter what hardware is used as long as it works? Joinery hardware has a huge impact on how you experience using your kitchen. In addition to this, quality hardware can also help prolong the life span of your kitchen.

You open your cutlery drawer more times in a day than your front door so it makes sense to invest in a quality drawer system. Hettich drawer systems are tested to the highest standard in our German factories and are manufactured from the best quality steel and plastics.


Our Atira and ArciTech drawers come with soft close runners as standard which means no noisy drawer slamming. You’ll actually be able to feel the superior difference in the Hettich runner when compared to a cheaper counterpart; the movement is not only completely smooth but has minimal noise. Plus both Atira and ArciTech look sleek and sharp, so they have the performance and design that will last for years to come.

Hettich Sensys hinges are manufactured from nickel plated steel and each individual part is dipped in an anti-corrosive solution which makes them perfect for under the kitchen sink or in your bathroom vanity. All Sensys hinges come standard with soft close, but the range also has a solution or option for every design. From moving heavy or large doors with a ease, to enabling push to open, right through to hinges that move cupboard doors completely out of the way for easier access. The Sensys range has the ability to add an extra feel of luxury to your everyday kitchen use.

Hettich stand behind their products 100%, that’s why they have a life time warranty on all of their products. So when you are next building or renovating your kitchen, make sure you ask for Hettich hardware joinery.
