Knape & Vogt announces the next evolution in undermount slide technology: MuV + and MuV + HD
The undermount redesign is quieter, smoother operating with added adjustment features
GRAND RAPIDS MI—Knape & Vogt announces its second generation undermount drawer slide offering, MuV+ and MuV+ HD Undermount Slides. The 75-lb. class medium-duty and 120-lb. class heavy-duty redesigned slide models are quieter, smoother operating and more flexible, with added post-installation adjustment features preferred by cabinetmakers.
“MuV+ raises the bar for undermount function with a soft close action that is quieter than ever, unmatched smooth operation and new adjustment options,” said Knape & Vogt Vice President for Marketing and Product Development, Peter Ross.
New MuV+ and MuV+ HD 120-lb. class slides (above) are quieter than ever with height, side-to-side and inset adjusting release levers available for installation flexibility.
The quieter close was accomplished by a redesign of the pivoting latch on the slide’s patented soft-close module. KV engineers used a cushioning polymer that significantly increases the module’s sound dampening capability. “This enhancement makes MuV+ arguably the quietest soft-close undermount slide on the market today,” said Ross.
Additionally, MuV+ features an integrated pull-force module that can be used in the field to adjust the soft-close if needed to maintain smooth open-and-close operation.
Three new release levers for MuV+ improve cabinetmakers’ ability to custom fit installed drawers. A 1D release lever offers height adjustment while a 2D lever offers height and side-to-side adjustments. A 3D release lever offers height, side-to-side and inset adjustments to align drawer fronts flush with the cabinet face. All three releases are available separately. A rear adjustment float also has been integrated into the slide for more side-to-side rear adjustment.
MuV+ slides accommodate drawer material from 1/2"– 3/4" thick. MuV+ 75-lb class slide is available in lengths from 9" – 22". MuV+ HD 120-lb. class slides are available in 18" – 30" lengths.
“The new MuV+ and MuV + HD slides add to KV’s best-in-industry reputation in the undermount category,” said Ross. “These enhancements give Knape & Vogt more appeal than ever in undermount.”
