Accuride invented a totally new add-on system for the drawer called Action Assist ™.
The doors are mounted to the track using recirculating ball carriages and brackets. These give a really smooth gliding movement and the covered design prevents dirt ingress that could jam up a roller system.

This telescopic slide has 100% extension, making it ideal for areas needing full access. But the really clever bit is the front release lever. This type of lock-in mechanism is normally only found on really heavy duty slides, but Accuride felt that this function could be useful in lower load applications too.
Well designed furniture is obviously very important for the efficient operation of a professional and busy kitchen and the Bistro design team works with the end customer to ensure that all areas of design, production and installation are seamless. The proactive maintenance of the equipment and fixtures prolongs the service life and limits any breaks in operation.
In 1995 Checkmark approached Carlo Casagrande in Finland to discuss how telescopic drawer slides could be incorporated into the checkout counter design. Important issues included ease of installation of the slide during the manufacturing process and the reliability of the product during use.
Another way these differences can be observed is through varying attitudes to grocery shopping and how stores cater to these differences. Seven Eleven, for example, is a simple convenience store in the US where you can quickly buy a drink or a snack to keep you going, but Seven Eleven in Japan is a high-end convenience store that efficiently stocks a huge range of products within a relatively small space.
Developed in 2011 by Danish company IMBOX Shoecare A/S, which is part of the Grundtvig Group, the IMBOX system is a world-patented shoe protection service. Taking place in an enclosed box, a pair of shoes is sprayed with the mixture of liquids that form the IMBOX solution. The liquids have all been tested by PFI Pirmasens in Germany, the preferred testing institute for footwear, and they, along with the machine, have all been approved according to Danish standards – the most comprehensive standards in the world.
Just some of the famous Swiss chocolate brands that have become household names over the last two centuries. Swiss chocolate factories date back to 1819, when François-Louis Callier opened the first mechanised chocolate factory in Vevey, near Lac Léman. In 1836, the Sprüngli family set up Confiserie Sprüngli, but it would be another 56 years until they joined forces with Rodolphe Lindt’s Bern-based factory in 1892 to become the Lindt brand we all know today.
Wine is one of the largest exports within and out of Europe, with almost 50% of world wine production happening in France, Spain and Italy alone. Whether you are hosting a dinner party for friends at home or going out for a romantic dinner at a hotel or restaurant, the wine is arguably just as important as the food – and when you’re serving fine wine, from smooth reds to crisp whites, it is deserving of the finest storage and display.
Mud. Dirt. Dust. UV rays. All of these can cause havoc on a new pair of shoes. Which is why Danish company Imbox Shoecare Protection designed the Imbox footwear protection machine. This was previously a service only available to those in Japan and Europe, but now – thanks to the hard work of those at Imbox – the company have just launched a new version for the North American market.
