What kind of Closer are you?
Young America announces the debut of our upgraded drawer system, the Quadro self-closing slide from Hettich, that enhances both the function and safety of our children’s furniture. Best of all, it’s QUIET. No more noisy slamming, bamming, house-shaking, neighborhood-quaking drawer closures.
Details, Interesting Details:
What’s Quadro? Nope, not a car or computer. It’s something better. Quadro is premium quality hardware from Hettich - an under-mount, ball bearing design that facilitates the smoothest, most even open/close possible, and its steel ball bearings are crafted to withstand years of heavy use. Many premium brands, including Sub-Zero and Viking, rely on Quadro technology to provide the optimum performance. Sound impressive? We think so too.
What’s so great about the new Young America drawer system? Featuring a 4-piece solid wood drawer box made of sustainably harvested North American hardwood with English dovetails in all four corners, our drawer system reflects a standard of American craftsmanship that is hard to find today. Young America’s upgraded drawer design includes a state-of-the-art drawer slide with Silent System technology. This unique combination of superior materials, construction and advanced engineering helps reinforce Young America’s reputation for producing safe, high-quality furniture parents can trust.
Why will parents LOVE our new drawer system? Safety. The Silent System is a soft-close function that catches a drawer, then gently and quietly pulls it shut. Silent System technology makes it virtually impossible for a drawer to slam closed, protecting little fingers from being pinched and helping to preserve peace and quiet in your home. For emphasis, peace and quiet.
One more drawer Safety Feature to be excited about. The Quadro drawer slide includes a dynamic load capacity of up to 55 pounds as well as a maximum safety extension, which limits how far drawers can be pulled out to reduce the possibility of tip-over accidents. Each Young America furniture piece with the new system also includes an anti-tip kit to further protect against your adventurous child’s attempt to climb the furniture. As always, we have your child’s - and whole family’s - safety in mind.
Bottom line? It’s an open and shut case. You can safely and quietly close these new drawers any which way you or your child prefers, so be creative!

Children are more susceptible to pollutants than adults because they are growing and breathe in proportionately more air. This means indoor pollutants, such as certain chemicals, particles and allergens, can cause more severe health effects in children.
Facts You Should Know
- Children breathe in a greater volume of air than adults relative to their body size.
- Children’s organs and respiratory, immune and neurological systems are still developing.
- Children are much closer to the ground, and as a result, breathe in more of the heavier airborne chemicals than do adults.
- Infants and young children breathe through their mouths, more so than do adults, which increases their risk of pulmonary exposure to particulates and fibers, that would otherwise be filtered out in the nose.
- Children have a higher heart rate than adults, which allows substances that are absorbed into the blood to permeate tissues faster.
