How to choose Coffee Tables with Drawers in a proper way?
Just some years ago in the manufacture of coffee tables, drawers were not equipped with moving-up mechanisms. They “slipped” on internal wooden rails of the table, constantly distorting and getting stuck inside the table.
Recently in furniture design a quite new destination has been appeared. This step was caused by the great popularity of moving-out systems belonging to various kinds. Frankly speaking, they are used more often in the bottom part of the coffee tables in order to provide the most convenient access to the space.
It should be noted that moving-out systems are considered to be the most wearing part of the coffee tables with drawers. It happens because this type of system not only constantly in action when you open and close the drawers, but also because of that fact that they are under a permanent load provided by drawer contents.
You can choose any type of moving-out system, but remember that it should have the following list of parameters: smooth glide, maximum allowable load safety factor and a door closer. Moreover, mind that the availability to open your drawer without handles is also very important.
It is obvious that if you use the moving-out systems with low load capacity, in the course of time your even half-filled drawer will sag, the small margin of safety will lead to rapid emergence of a squeak. All these things are rather unpleasant and, in general, are not allowed if we are talking about home comfort.
When making coffee tables with drawers the modern furniture professionals typically use a high-strength, durable system with large moving-out rates of permissible load.
