In determining the correct working height for the individual kitchen activities, it is the placement of the elbow – not the physical height of the person – that is decisive. We use a modern measuring device such as the AMK ergonometer to precisely and quickly determine the ergonomically proper working height. Ask your speciality retailer.
The actual activity surface in a sink is the sink bottom. These should ideally be planned above the normal working height. Optimally, the bottom of the sink lies 10 to 15 cm below elbow height. This takes the pressure off the spinal discs specifically and permanently.
The standard carcase height of 720 mm is mainly intended for kitchen prepping. This active height corresponds – depending on plinth height – to the normal posture of average size people during kitchen prep activities.
The actual active height for cooking is the top edge of an average size cooking pot on the hot plate. Optimally, the carcase in mini height lies approx. 25 cm below elbow height. This guarantees relaxed cooking, when shoulder and arm are relieved.
Wall units with flaps or folding/lifting doors offer a great overview of contents and are freely accessible, since no open doors are in the way. The new generation of cooker hoods also guarantees optimum headroom, even for taller people, due to the slanted extraction surface of the hood.
With the sensor-operated opening support mechanism Libero for the waste separation systems: Euro-Cargo Soft, Euro-Cargo S, Separato-K, Separato-M and Cargo frame, the front pull-out can be opened slightly with the simple touch of a foot via a sensor in the plinth.
The larder unit with its easy to open front pull-out is thus, the most intelligent kind of storage unit. Everything is clearly arranged and can be accessed from both sides. The position of the baskets can be adjusted in height.
The raised built-in electric appliances in user-friendly height make loading and unloading very comfortable. This ensures that kitchen tasks are easy on your back and prevent back problems later. In addition to fridge, steam cooker or dishwasher, ovens, microwaves and fully automatic coffee machines can also be integrated in ergonomically correct heights. In this way, no valuable workspace on the worktop is wasted, and a relaxed day of activities in the kitchen is guaranteed.
