New Force ManagementTM (FM) from Knape & Vogt is the next generation of soft-close drawer slide technology. FM technology establishes a new standard in soft-close functionality by delivering superior performance in dampening action, effortless drawer opening and smooth operation.
8450FM/8455FM slides include a patent-pending Force ManagementTM module that utilizes an innovative rack and gear system.
This clever system places mechanical forces where they are needed to significantly reduce the effort to open a drawer and to deliver the effective drawer closure that customers expect.
All this is built on the time-tested KV 8400
slide platform, making 8450FM/8455FM slides the smoothest and easiest soft-close drawer slides to install and operate.
