What are Blum 170 Degree Hinges

This wide angle clip top hinge allows the cabinet door to open 170 degrees enabling full access to the stored contents within. The hinges are metal alloy with a durable nickel coating and are compatible with all mounting plates in Blum's Clip Top range. Two types of cabinet door hinges are available, straight hinges are used for overlay door applications while twin application hinges are used when two individual doors are mounted on the same cabinet frame. Blum hinges are synonymous with being easy to install, a 35mm hole bored to a min depth of 11mm is required. Each hinge requires a mounting plate attaching to the cabinet side, 0mm when used with 18mm thick carcases and a 3mm mounting plate when used with a 15mm carcass.

The door and Blum 170 degree hinge simply clips to the mounting plate without the need for tools. Once fitted, these hinges are fully adjustable in three dimensions for precise door alignment at the touch of a spiral screw. The hinges are known as sprung staying open or closed as required and may be turned into soft close hinges with the addition of the optional clip on soft close mechanism. Hinges can be purchased individually or as a discounted bundle to include a 0mm mounting plate and hinge arm cover.

Please note: due to the cabinet door hinges design, it is not suitable for use on cupboards or furniture that are accessible or reached by small children as small fingers may get between the working mechanism and the hinge. In this instance we recommend the 155° zero protrusion hinge be used
