Titus demonstrates ground-breaking technologies at kbb Birmingham
Titus combines customer-led research and development with lean processes and state-of-the-art manufacturing to deliver solutions that provide outstanding customer benefits. For those who wish to see first-hand Titus’ innovations, the company will be exhibiting on Stand V80 at kbb Birmingham which runs from 6-9 March 2022, at the NEC, Birmingham.
Among the new developments that visitors to the Titus stand will be able to see are TeraBlack products with a matte black finish and light absorbing microstructure, the new System 6 connector family of performance-engineered connectors for simplified cabinet assembly, and state-of-the-art dampers for cold environments which operate reliably in temperatures as low as -30°C.
TeraBlack is much more than just another color option. It is a unique black, non-light reflective matte finish with a highly uniform surface, and it provides a perfect response to the modern trend toward the use of black cabinet hardware. The flagship product in the TeraBlack range is the award-winning T-type hinge with integrated damping. Key features of these hinges are simplicity of assembly, wide tolerances, and consistent performance on a wide range of doors.
B-type-i3 is a third-generation slide-on hinge with integrated damping, which can be relied upon to deliver consistent and reliable opening and closing performance throughout the entire life of the furniture. The extended lifecycle of B-type-i3 hinges make them an appropriate solution for a wide range of cabinet applications in bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms.
Quickfit TL5 ‘Full Metal Jacket’ dowel connectors have been designed with strength and performance in mind. They deliver reliable connections in all common wood-based materials, including MDF, chipboard and solid wood, without the need for additional wooden dowels. Thanks to its unique expandable steel sleeve, the Quickfit TL5 is the only dowel on the market that reliably engages in a 5mm dowel hole.
System 6 connectors feature an elegant square design that allows a large surface area of the product to rest on the panel when tightened, thereby ensuring optimum positioning. Anti-rotation ribs prevent cam rotation and panel shift, while the angle-drive feature on the cam makes these connectors an ideal choice for applications where space for assembly is limited.
Tekform Slimline Tacto drawers incorporate runners with an integrated Tacto activator that ensures effortless touch opening. The new drawers are the most recent development in the popular Tekform Slimline range of thin-wall drawers, and use the same drilling and fixing positions are previous versions. This makes it easy to update and enhance existing designs to offer convenient and reliable opening of drawers with handleless fronts.
Slidix products are novel damping solutions for use with sliding doors. The range includes a complete family of soft-closing systems with a damping stroke of 50 or 100 mm that assure efficient damping at any closing speed for applications from 5 kg to 120 kg. A unique feature of the range is Slidix Centro, which is specifically designed to control the motion of and centering of middle doors in applications that involve three or more sliding doors.
Dampers for cold environments are the latest product of Titus’ “Engineered for a Purpose” philosophy. By providing reliable damping at temperatures down to -30 ºC, these offer convenient and affordable solutions to challenges that include the damping of doors in freezers, wine coolers, mobile equipment and automobile applications.
“At Titus, our aim is always to offer innovative and practical solutions that will give our customers the maximum possible competitive advantage,” said Phil Beddoe, General Manager for UK and Northern Europe. “And I believe that the new products on show at kbb Birmingham confirm that we are successfully meeting this aim. I hope as many visitors as possible will take the opportunity to see our new developments and to discuss their potential applications and benefits with the Titus experts on our stand.”
