There’s More to Outdoor Living Than Lighting up a Barbecue


By bringing the style, comfort, and conveniences of an indoor kitchen into your outside space, you’ll be able to prepare and cook all kinds of delicious food while entertaining friends and family under the glow of sunlight, surrounded by natural beauty.

With potentially limitless functions, from sinks and fridges to innovative storage space, outdoor kitchens can come in all shapes and sizes to suit your space and design taste – giving you everything on hand to host a meal without moving inside. Using Hettich’s sophisticated and durable fittings, you’ll enjoy peace of mind that your outdoor kitchen will function exactly as you need for years to come, withstanding the harsh Australian sun, wind, and rain.

Functional Zones. The best outdoor kitchens offer ease of navigation and flow between work zones, such as placing storage cabinets near cooking areas and your fridge and sink near the preparation area and worktop.

Cooktop Versatility. Having an outdoor kitchen is your opportunity to explore new and exciting ways of cooking that you can’t do inside. Smokers, Pizza Ovens, and open flame cooking are popular inclusions in outdoor kitchens.

Bringing indoor style outdoors. High-quality modern materials and fittings allow you to invite the same warmth and functionality of your home interior into your garden, from deep pull-out drawers with natural tone facades to sleek handles and ambient lighting – anything is possible.

Integrated social areas. If you’re outside preparing a meal, you’ll need a comfortable space for your family and guests to relax nearby. An open-plan layout is a popular choice, designing functional areas around a dining table or cosy seating space – you could even incorporate an outdoor fireplace.

Running true to form – Quadro ball bearing runner system

Ball bearings are one of the world’s success stories. High-performance and precision machines would be unthinkable without them. Ball bearings are precision components that deliver the smoothest possible action and enjoy an extremely long life. And they are virtually indestructible, coping with big temperature fluctuations and tremendous loads.

Runner elements in Alfresco Outdoor Kitchens work hard, often in the most difficult conditions. If you are looking for a tough runner system capable of delivering peak performance and of coping with a heavy workload, there is nothing to beat a system based on the ball bearing idea – the Quadro runner system. The Quadro chosen for the Alfresco Collection has a specific special protective coating against the elements but it is not stainless steel.

Veosys stainless steel hinge from Hettich – defies damp, cold, and hot conditions

An outdoor kitchen stands outside in all weathers: cold, heat, fog, rain, snow or salty sea air – even under extreme conditions, the furniture needs to stay fully functional. This demand top quality from every component. Special fittings made out of stainless steel are particularly corrosion resistant and make outdoor furniture fit for use outside. The new Veosys fast assembly concealed hinge from Hettich is a rugged all-rounder for all weathers. Veosys is made of robust stainless steel to meet the most exacting of requirements and comes in a high-quality look. It is not affected by temperature fluctuation, moisture or salt.

Even after 120 hours in the natural salt spray test (NSS), the concealed hinge system demonstrated its exceptional corrosion resistance in compliance with DIN EN ISO 9227. Besides use outdoors, in shipbuilding or in coastal areas, Veosys is also suitable for applications in spa centres, gyms or laboratories and hospitals. Veosys is quickly installed thanks to practical clip-on installation as well as convenient 3D adjustment for precision lateral, vertical and depth alignment – and, if required, the adjustment screws can be hidden from view behind stainless steel cover caps.

But this concealed hinge can do even more: with Veosys, the user-friendly functions familiar from indoor furniture can now also be enjoyed in the garden or on the roof terrace. The integrated Silent System provides excellent soft closing performance at low and high outdoor temperatures. And with its wide self-closing angle of 35 degrees, Veosys closes furniture doors almost by itself.
