Blum One Piece Compact Hinges with Built-in Blumotion

Blum One Piece Compact Hinges with Built-in Blumotion

  • Compact One Piece European hinge with built-in Blumotion (one piece means that the mounting plate and the hinge are combined into one unit).
  • Blumotion is Blum's soft closing mechanism, which allows the cabinet door to close softly without banging.
  • This hinge may be used to replace any compact one piece European hinge that is installed with the following:
    • the same overlay dimension
    • a bore distance of 1/8" (the bore distance is the distance between the edge of the door and the edge of the cup drilled in the back of the door)
    • a cup diameter of 35mm (1-3/8")
    • a matching cup depth, as shown below
  • This hinge features:
    • an overload safety feature (protects the soft close mechanism if the door is slammed)
    • deactivation switch (for small or light doors, one of the hinges may be deactivated for less dampening action)
  • Available in two cup depths, shallow and standard. The shallow cup depth is useful for doors with a deep profile cut on the outside edge of the door.
  • Hinge is 6-way adjustable after installation.
  • Hinge comes with dowels and screws for the door side of the hinge. Dowels may be discarded if not needed.
  • Screws for the cabinet side are not included but are offered for purchase during check out. Order one #10 pan head screw for each hinge ordered.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • When changing hinges on your door, you should change all of the hinges. Mixing different types or brands of hinges will cause door binding problems.
  • The mounting plate side of the hinge may differ slightly from what is shown in the image depending on the overlay of the hinge.

Blum Face Mount Compact Hinge with Blumotion

Blum Face Mount Compact Hinge with Blumotion
  • Compact One Piece European hinge with built-in Blumotion.
  • This hinge is special in that the mounting plate side of the hinge mounts on the face of the cabinet face frame instead of the edge of the cabinet face frame. (See the support information below for an installation image).
  • This hinge works for doors which have an overlay of 1-3/8" or greater.
  • Blumotion is Blum's soft-closing mechanism which allows the cabinet door to close softly without banging.
  • This hinge features:
    • an overload safety feature (protects the soft close mechanism if the door is slammed).
    • deactivation switch (for small or light doors, one of the hinge may be deactivated for less dampening action)
  • When changing hinges on your cabinet door, it is necessary to change out all of the hinges so that you do not have different types of hinges on the same door. Mixing non-Blumotion hinges on your door will cause the door to bind as they have different pivot points and articulation.
  • The cup depth required for this hinge is a minimum of 7/16".
  • Hinge is 6-way adjustable after installation.
  • Hinge comes with dowels and screws for the door side of the hinge. Dowels may be discarded if not needed.
  • Optional Items:
    • Screws for the cabinet side are not included but are offered for purchase during checkout.
    • Order 2 each of our SKU 652360 for each hinge ordered.
    • A Restriction Clip is available for this item. The restriction clip (our SKU 268765) stops the door from opening wider than 86 degrees. This is valuable if the fully open door hits another cabinet, glass door, TV screen, etc. The restriction clip is offered for purchase during checkout.
    • Spacer Plate: The spacer plate (our SKU 268790) installs between the hinge and the hinge cup. It is 1/16" thick. It is useful for thin, profile or bevel doors. It is offered for purchase during checkout.
