Why Do Parents Love our Dresser Drawers? Safety
What’s more tempting to a toddler than opening and closing drawers? The satisfying slamming and bamming puts a big smile on an innocent face, until his or her hands or fingers are caught and pinched. Ouch!
We found a simple, toddler-proof solution to protect those curious little fingers. It’s a Soft Close drawer system with a fancy name: the Quadro self-closing slide from Hettich. It’s purpose? It prevents drawers of casegoods (aka: dressers, armoires, storage drawers, bookcases) from a slamming close. The drawer hardware puts the brakes on, slows the drawer and closes itself. Even the mightiest toddler will be hard-pressed to get a good slam. Better yet, our drawers are QUIET.
What’s so great about the Young America Drawer System? Our cases feature a 4-piece solid wood drawer box made of sustainably harvested North American hardwood with English dovetails in all 4 corners; our drawer system reflects a standard of American craftsmanship that is hard to find today, especially when paired with Soft Close Hettich Quadro self-closing drawer glide hardware; an under-mount, ball bearing design that facilitates the smoothest, most even open/close possible. This unique combination of superior materials, construction and advanced engineering means safe, high-quality furniture parents can trust, for many years.
One More Drawer Safety Feature to be Excited about. The Soft Close Quadro self-closing drawer slide includes a dynamic load capacity of up to 55 pounds and a maximum safety extension, which limits how far drawers can be pulled out to reduce the possibility of tip-over accidents. We also include an anti-tip kit with each casegood (dressers, armoires, storage drawers, bookcases) to further protect against your adventurous toddler’s attempt to climb the furniture. Rest assured we always have your child’s safety in mind.
