Tittle:
Israeli SME offers vertically moveable cabinets for houses, kitchens and businesses
Summary:
An Israeli start-up develops vertically movable cabinets that increase storage capacity by using room space that is inconvenient to access. The designed cabinets are controlled by a commonly used electrical motion system, thus allowing for affordable pricing. The company is interested in a license agreement to sell its intellectual property and knowledge or, a commercial agreement with technical assistance, in which firms in the field of furniture serve as distributors (maybe also producers).
Description:
An Israeli start-up company that develops vertically movable cabinets for kitchens, houses and businesses is looking for partners.
Small apartments and studios, comprising of only one or two rooms, typically lack sufficient storage space for everyday items. Almost every constructed space comprises free volumes close to the ceiling, and even though they have the potential of being used instead of occupying floor areas, they are not utilized mainly due to the lack of a comprehensive, affordable solution.
The company´s developed cabinets, specifically those that are not intended for kitchens, are installed with a large enough clearance space to the floor, and thus do not pose risks to nearby persons and do not overcrowd the room. Stored items are easily reached by lowering the cabinets to an accessible height by a motion system. The motion system is a new implementation of an existing, widely used one, produced in many countries, allowing affordable prices of the product.
The company also offers practical solutions for dead corners and niches of kitchens, including both upper and lower ones. These types of movable cabinets offer excellent accessibility to heavy appliances such as mixers, food processors, and coffee machines, allowing the appliances to be easily accessed at the countertop level on demand and to be used without needing to drag them out of the cabinet. These solutions allow for a larger working area and a neat appearance of the countertop and the kitchen.

Each type of the movable cabinet solutions includes a safety system to handle possibly hazardous situations.

Vertically moveable cabinets are suitable for the whole population, but possess added value for small apartment owners, elderly persons, short people and people with special needs. They are located in typically "dead" areas such as the corners of walls and ceilings (even spaces contained above doors or windows), as well as corners of kitchen cabinets.
Advantages and Innovations:
The innovation of vertically movable cabinets is in providing additional accessible storage volumes without overcrowding the room. This is achieved by utilizing spaces that were not previously used or were used with low efficiency. The cabinet products designed for kitchens enable effective use of dead corners, while simultaneously freeing the countertop from bulky, heavy appliances. Vertically movable cabinets developed by the company meet high standards of safety, while preventing accidents resulting from people falling when trying to reach items stored in high places.

Only few movable cabinets solutions can be found on the market. Such cabinets are mainly designated for disabled persons and combine both vertical and lateral movements to allow accessibility to the stored items for people in wheelchairs, even in the presence of a countertop. These cabinets are not installed high enough to allow free passage underneath, have a relatively low storage capacity and are quite expensive. Other types of movable cabinets already on the market are intended for the upper spaces of kitchens, but not as close to the ceiling as the company´s products. Previously existing products do not solve the problem of dead corners, cannot be installed above a kitchen window, and cannot store and operate heavy appliances such as mixers, coffee machines, etc.
The vertically movable solutions for dead corners of kitchens developed by the company replaces the currently available solutions for the upper and lower dead corners of the kitchen. Current solutions for the lower corners include rotating devices or drawers, while current solutions for the upper corners include shelving or, in many cases, are simply left unused.
