What opening angle stops should we use for 110°- and 107°-hinges and how are they installed?
Have you ever fitted a kitchen or assembled a piece of furniture and found that the doors collide with an adjacent wall or cabinet? In the worst-case scenario, this even causes damage to the furniture fronts or the walls. You should use an opening angle stop to prevent this from happening.
Blum has a number of different opening angle stops on offer for this purpose. This article will explain which opening angle stop you can use for each hinge and how to assemble these.
How can you tell a CLIP top BLUMOTION 110° hinge apart from the 107° Version?
It is often difficult for fitters on-site to tell if a CLIP top BLUMOTION 110° hinge or CLIP top BLUMOTION 107° hinge is installed in a piece of furniture. However, it is important to know this information, especially when it comes to selecting the right opening angle stop. The two simple steps below will help you to differentiate between the hinges.
What opening angle stops do we have for 155°-hinges and how are they installed?
For CLIP top 155°-hinges, at Blum we offer two different opening angle stops: 70T7503N and 70T7503N09. The following article describes the different opening angle stops and the applications they are best suited to.
Opening angle stops are used to prevent the door from colliding with walls/protruding cabinets. At Blum, we provide a solution to this problem for CLIP top 155°-hinges in the form of opening angle stop 70T7503N09. This limits the opening angle to 92°.
Why 92°? This means that 0-protrusion is always guaranteed for the 155°-hinge and that the drawer does not collide with the door when it slides out of the cabinet.
