Standard solutions

Along with components, the Zimmer Group also offers complete, nearly universal and immediately usable systems.

Our systems are complete damping units with an integrated self-closing mechanism. Our customers can integrate the systems directly into their rails without requiring that the rails already be equipped with a corresponding self-closing mechanism.

Universal – Innovative – Versatile
These are the core attributes of our systems.

Function

The soft close system consists of a damping unit with an integrated self-closing mechanism and a locking lever. In addition, there is an actuator available in different versions depending on the application.

Retro (drawer damping)

 

Product advantages

 

  • The Retro soft close system consists of a damping unit with an integrated self-closing mechanism.
  • It is available individually or in a set with various actuators.
  • The system's geometry is derived primarily from its function. Particular attention was given to creating a visually functional design taking up the smallest amount of space.
  • Retro is notable for its high loading capacity of 25 kg per unit.
  • We recommend two systems per drawer to attain the most symmetrical closing behavior possible.
  • Even drawers with higher loading weights can be equipped with Retro by installing several systems.
  • Retro's core strengths are its versatile potential applications and its high level of flexibility.
  • During development, special emphasis was placed on designing a universally usable system.

 

Product features

  • Pneumatic damping
  • Retro is also ideal for retrofitting a drawer that did not previously have a damping or self-closing mechanism.
  • Retro can also be integrated into smaller sliding doors.

Roller slide

   
 
  • Retro is mounted on the frame. It is located between the frame and the drawer.
  • The actuator is mounted on the side of the drawer.
  • A narrow actuator is available for installation in a roller slide.
Undermount slide    
 
  • Retro is mounted on the frame. It is located above the drawer.
  • The actuator is mounted on the top edge of the drawer.
  • The same actuator as the roller slide is used for installation in an undermount slide.
Single-wall frame    
 
  • Retro is mounted on the frame. It is located on the bottom of the drawer between the frame and drawer.
  • The actuator is mounted on the bottom of the drawer.
  • There are actuators of three different widths available for installation in a single-wall frame; this guarantees a precise fit for every frame width.

 

 

Silento Forte (sliding door damping)

Product advantages

  • The Silento Forte soft close system consists of a damping unit with an integrated self-closing mechanism.
  • It is available individually (in different versions) or in a set with an actuator.
  • Silento Forte stands out due to its high loading capacity of 15 - 50 kg per unit.
  • Silento Forte's core strengths are its versatile range of potential applications and its high level of flexibility.
  • During development, special emphasis was placed on designing a universally usable system.

 

Product characteristics

  • Pneumatic damping
  • Silento Forte is also ideal for retrofitting a sliding door that did not previously have a damping or self-closing mechanism.
  • Silento Forte can also be integrated into larger drawers or apothecary cabinet drawers.
  • Silento Forte can be installed in most common sliding doors.
