21 Mar Blum Adds Solutions for Thin Fronts
Blum, Inc. has recently introduced several solutions for adding soft closing and superior hinging to thin door and drawer panels. The products are engineered with sleek design in mind and they offer a single solution for three applications – lift up doors, standard cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Thin fronts can now be used with AVENTOS HK top, HS and HL lift systems. Blum has also integrated soft-close technology into the new CLIP top BLUMOTION hinge for thin doors, eliminating the need for a hinge cup. With a 110° opening angle and zero protrusion, this solution can work for a variety of applications. And the slim design of LEGRABOX drawer bodies can now be mirrored in the drawer front. The new attachment system for thin fronts is based on the company’s EXPANDO T technology. A steel pull-in anchor ensures a secure fit for harder materials, while plastic jaws secure the fit for softer materials. Assembly is simple: just drill, insert and secure the screws. Thin panels with sufficient stability and strength from 5/16” to 9/16” (8-14 mm) thick may be used, which opens up the possibility of using a wide variety of materials and thicknesses. For example, the thin door attachment is strong enough for heavier stone materials while still being suitable for softer materials.
