Hettich America's "Easys" are electric, automatic drawer openers that can be activated by touching anywhere on the front of the drawer. This technology allows for a sleek and continuous design that is uninterrupted by cabinet hardware. The Easys system works through the use of an electric drive unit hidden inside of the cabinet which provides a smooth, even opening movement. This system is designed so that it does not take up valuable drawer space. The electric drive is deactivated anytime the drawer meets even a slight resistence. Drawers can also be used traditionally if there is a power outage.
