A new design feature for all types of drawer application are the soft-close glides (also referred to as self-close glides). This innovative hardware has the added feature of a smooth dampened closing movement. This feature stops drawers from slamming, and gently pulls drawers closed the last few inches. This pulling motion is where the term “soft-close” comes from. The damper is normally positioned in the mechanism at the rear of the glide and controls the closing action. This mechanism also acts as a hold-in, stopping the slide from bouncing open.
Soft-close drawer glides come in side-mount or under-mount styles. Under-mount glides look elegant, concealing any visible hardware. Also, under-mount glides allow drawers to be slightly wider and come with the option of a partial or full extension.
Benefits of soft-close glides prevent cabinet drawers from slamming, preserves the life of the drawer, protects the finish on the cabinetry and they are a desired feature for home buyers, adding to the value of your Deck House home.
