And the products Häfele America Co. is bringing to 2017 Association of Woodworking & Furnishing Supplies Fair (AWFS) will make one’s work easier to put together, add appeal and stand the test of time. Join them July 19-22 at AWFS booth #4422 in Las Vegas, Nevada so one can’t miss out.
“The difference between a good project and a great project is in the details―the craftsmanship of a hinge, handle or pull-out,” said Paul K. Smith, president of Häfele America Co. “That’s what woodworkers know Häfele for and that’s exactly what we’re bringing to this year’s AWFS Fair across all the product categories we offer.” Paul added further.
Häfele’s AWFS booth is where innovation and functionality combine to turn challenges into solutions. From inspired new connectors such as Häfele’s all-new, award winning Spreading Connector SC 8/25 to it’s truly plug and play Loox LED Lighting for cabinets, drawers and beyond or patent pending kitchen organizations such as the new Fineline™ Kitchen Accessories, visitors are sure to gain new knowledge and insight about how projects could be made better, their shop made more efficient and their customers wowed.
Select Häfele AWFS booth highlights include:
Connectors and Shelf Pins
Many of the connectors one knows well and love to use? Well, Häfele invented them. And they continue to invent the users. Our new Spreading Connector SC 8/25 is exactly what one should be using to put together small furniture from here on out. After someone is drilling some holes, they’ll need no tools, glue or clamps to assemble smaller pieces of furniture. The SC 8/25 even earned the coveted “Best of Best” award at this year’s interzum trade show. They’ll also show one that 3 mm > 5 mm with Häfele’s German engineered, toothed shelf pins for wood and glass shelves.
A Total Shop Solution
Superior hardware is merely one facet of the products and services Häfele provides to woodworkers throughout the United States. They’re also one of the country’s largest sellers of shop supplies such as glue, sandpaper and other consumables. And tools. And safety equipment. At AWFS Haefele will be featuring the latest from SENCO, including their all-new line of composite staples and nails as well as a bunch of other solutions to help one run their shop as well as keep one and their shop staff safe.
LED Lighting, Power and Data
Häfele’s Loox LED Lighting has quickly evolved into the system LED system of choice for the woodworking community due to its fully flexible, customizable and easy to install surface and recess mounted lights, LED ribbon and LED silicone ribbon. The ability to put efficient task, accent and ambient light practically anywhere with unique switching options has inspired innovation and brought new functionality kitchen, bath, closet and furniture design. Also on display will be the latest in power and data solutions—these aren’t just for office environments anymore.
Any part of the home, closet, garage or office can become a disorganized wasteland of stuff without the right products to keep our baser hunter/gatherer instincts in check. Häfele’s AWFS display will include a wide array of solutions bring order to the kitchen such as our Fineline ecosystem of kitchen organization products and even innovative solutions to tame waste like the Hailo US Cargo 18 waste bin system. New for closets is the Italian-styled Coloma Closet & Storage System which floats one clothes while hiding the hardware. If organizational superheroes existed, this could conceivably be their leader.
What Häfele can do For You
One of the strengths of Häfele beyond an unparalleled product selection is service. Knowing the pain points of installers has allowed them create a robust made-to-order operation called Häfele-to-Order to support a variety of product categories. If someone doesn’t like to assemble Haefele’s Loox LED light strips, one can let them do that for you. Lugging the right equipment along to precisely cut aluminum frame door profiles not your thing? It is ours. They can cut pieces to the customer’s exact specification and send them right to one’s job site. Haefele will even ship it assembled, if that would help increase one’s per project efficiency.
