With its waste separation system VS ENVI, Vauth-Sagel offers a modular product range that adapts surprisingly easily to individual habits, the size of the household and local waste management regulations. It makes everyday tasks considerably easier and has already won multiple hygiene, design and sustainability swards. The system does not have a negative impact on the kitchen aesthetics as it disappears, together with all of the various different bins needed, behind the doors of the kitchen unit.
Vauth-Sagel's success is based on the company's credo of using the available space in the optimum way, making everyday tasks in the kitchen and the utility room easier and extending the exacting design standards usually applied to kitchen units also to the interior of these units. Every product which the family-owned company develops must meet these requirements. This also applies to the waste separation system VS ENVI, which offers the right solution for all requirements thanks to the range's modular concept. All VS ENVI elements are now also available in standard US sizes.
System specialist Vauth-Sagel's VS ENVI Space does everything that a modern waste separation system should do. It rests on slides, can be pulled out fully and features impressive details like a soft close mechanism, so it opens and closes smoothly and almost noiselessly. Two different fitting heights and a wide range of different bin sizes that can be combined to offer 20 to 91 litres of waste disposal volume in total make it possible to customise each system. This modular concept makes it easy to configure a system that meets the locally applicable waste management regulations, which can vary greatly, or to create customer-specific depth versions in order to be able to install a boiler underneath the sink, for example. The waste separation system is perfectly sealed by a robust, double powder coated metal lid that can also be used as a storage shelf.
Optionally fitted above the VS ENVI Space bin system, the organiser drawer VS ENVI Drawer not only utilises the available storage space to perfection but also organises it with the aid of a choice of plastic trays in various sizes. The trays can be positioned flexibly to take the pipes and traps below the sink unit into account or to allow the kitchen user to customise their position as preferred.
Extreme versatility: VS ENVI Toolbox
A new addition to the range is the accessory version VS ENVI Toolbox, which creates additional storage space inside different waste separation systems. VS ENVI Toolbox is an organiser element that fits on the already existing VS ENVI product range systems with bin sizes from 13 to 28 litres. It can be used to collect small waste items such as batteries or corks or also for storing equipment or utensils. Users can divide the toolbox into different compartments as required. It is also portable and can be utilised wherever it is needed in the home: for storing toys, cleaning materials or tools, for example. A range of fresh colours and end consumer packaging perfect the package.
