Liebherr’s SoftSystem soft-closing mechanism provides appliances with quiet and convenient door closure, and also supports high levels of energy efficiency and security. Check your fridge’s documentation to see whether your fridge is equipped with SoftSystem!
We’re sure you’re familiar with the following kitchen scenario: You close a drawer or door using too much force. The resulting slam makes you wish you hadn’t. If it was the refrigerator door that you were a little too forceful with, there’s a shudder and a jangle. You wonder what damage you might have done. If only you had an appliance with soft-closing!
Liebherr understands this. That’s why SoftSystem closing is a feature on several of our models. SoftSystem ensures the appliance’s door closes quietly and gently, even with fully stocked door shelves. It provides automatic door closure from a designated opening angle. We’ve all been to the fridge to get something and gave the door a light shove to close. Later we realized that the door didn’t fully close. Warm air has been coming in! SoftSystem soft-closing prevents this. The inside of your fridge remains cold, ensuring optimal energy efficiency.
Automatic Closure Angles For Various Appliance Types:
Built-in appliances (IF EQUIPPED):
On our built-in refrigerators, freezers and wine appliances, the door automatically closes upon reaching an opening angle of about 30°.
Freestanding appliances (IF EQUIPPED):
On our freestanding refrigerators, freezers and wine appliances, the door automatically closes upon reaching an opening angle of about 30°.
An additional benefit of our soft-closing mechanism is a significant reduction in risk of injury due to doors suddenly falling or slamming shut.
