Opening angle stop AVENTOS HK and HK-S

Which opening angle stops are suitable for use with AVENTOS HK and HK-S and how are they installed?

This picture shows a Blum AVENTOS HKSimilarly to AVENTOS HF, with AVENTOS HK and AVENTOS HK-S the front can collide with the ceiling in certain installation situations. In order to prevent collision, we have two different opening angle stops on offer for you to choose from.

 

 

 

 

 

The blog contribution ‘Opening angle stop for AVENTOS HF’ describes the specific cases in which an opening angle stop must be used.

For AVENTOS HK and HK-S, we have two different items available for limiting the opening angle to 100° and 75° respectively.

 

This pictures shows an overview of the opening angle stop

 

The different opening angle stops can be identified by their colour. The 100° opening angle stops are dark grey and the 75° opening angle stops are dust grey.

You can work out if opening angle stops are required, and if so which, during the construction phase. You can use the following formula to help you with this:

 

This picture shows the space requirement of AVENTOS HK and AVENTOS HK-S

 

For example: with a front height top (FH) of 480 mm and a front thickness (D) of 19 mm, you will not need an opening angle stop where the space requirement above (Y) is 150 mm. If the space requirement above (Y) is only 90 mm, you will need the 100° opening angle stop.

Note: with the 75° opening angle stop, the fronts no longer protrude beyond the cabinet, so the cabinet can be planned up to the ceiling.

How can I install the opening angle stop quickly and easily?

In principle, if you need to limit an opening angle, you should use an opening angle stop for each lift mechanism in the cabinet.

The opening angle stops must be installed before the front is clipped on to the lever. For AVENTOS HK, the opening angle stop can now be pushed on to the outermost pin from above. For AVENTOS HK-S, this needs to be threaded from the front and then rotated downwards. You will know the opening angle stop is installed as soon as you hear a click.

    Hi,
    I live in a rental house, and have a blum stay lift kitchen door. the door doesn’t stay up in any angle, and i think one of the screws are missing – if i follow the guide to increase the tension, there is no screw there. i’m not sure which model it is. is there a manual i can check to know which screw it is (size, type), and where and how to install it?
    Thank you!

      Hello Yael,
      you will find all information about the adjustment of AVENTOS on our
      homepage:
      Two special application of AVENTOS HK and AVENTOS HK-S have no screw on one of both lift mechanism. But at least at on one lift mechanism you could adjust the tension of the spring.
      Please try to adjust both lift mechanisms.

      When this doesn’t work out, you have the wrong lift mechanism in your cabinet. If this is the case, please come back to me and let me know in which country you live.

    Your demo videos of the stop install are shown wrong with image type caption listed, they are backwards of the actual hing shown for each, the HK-S is on the top vid and HK is on the bottom, you can tell this by the size and shape of each hing shown.This can create a lot of confusion for those trying to see how and what type of stop to use for those hinges. I know because it caused me a lot of agony when installing both hinges on a recent project.

    Hello,
    I hope I am posting this in the correct place.
    Today the ‘soft close’ ability on one of our units (Aventos HK) suddenly stopped working, so this unit now ‘slams’ shut.
    Is there some kind of dampener that I can adjust? or some method to correct this issue.
    Thank you very much in advance.

      Hi Kieran,
      the dampers of our products are not adjustable. Perhaps there is a different reason for the door slaming shut. I am sure that our customer service will be able to provide you with a solution.
      Would you be so kind and get in touch with our representative office in your country?
      You will find the contact info here:

      Hi Janice,

      yes, AVENTOS HK angle stops will work with UTRUSTA lift mechanisms.
      The Blum Article Numbers are 20K7041 (for 100 degree opening angle) and 20K7011 (for 75 degree opening angle).

      Best regards
      Matthias

    Hi,
    Should the optional angle stops be included in the hinge kit? I did not have any present and require them
    Thanks

      Hi Dan,

      thank you for your message. Opening angle stops are usually not included in hinge kits. If you require some and would like to know where to buy them in the UK, please get in touch with our UK representative office (http://www.blum.com/contact) and they will let you know which distributors have them in stock.

      Best regards from Austria

    Your video demonstrating opening angle stops for the Aventos HK is not working. I’m about to install and would like to see first.

      Hi Doug,

      I am surprised that the video does not work on your computer. I have just checked it and it works just fine.
      Can you please try to open it in a different browser or on your mobile phone? Or tell me a bout the error message?

      Best regards
      Matthias

    Dear Matthias,
    Are there any other angle options available? Can a ‘custom’ angle be achieved by modifying an angle stop?
    Thanks,
    Adrian

      Dear Adrian,

      there are no other angle options available. Modification is indeed possible, however this might compromise the longevity of the angle stop.
      I am sorry, but I can not give you any official recommendation for such a modification.

      Best regards
      Matthias

    Hi again Matthias,
    Thanks for your previous reply.
    On an unrelated topic, do you know if any home automation ‘smart hubs’ can be configured to open the blum servo drives? (E.g. google home).
    Kind regards,
    Adrian

      Hi Adrian,
      you are welcome 🙂
      Concerning your other question: at the moment it is not possible to integrate SERVO-DRIVE into your smart home / home automation.
      The only thing I could think of is to add a smart power plug to the SERVO-DRIVE transformer to deactivate SERVO-DRIVE via voice control or other IFTTT services 😉
