Introducing the J160 range. Like the J95, the J160 is a heavy-duty concealed hinge capable of holding doors weighing up to 40kg. The key innovation is that the J160 opens to 160 degrees, the extra wide angle allowing open doors to be tucked out of the way against the adjacent surface when open. Due to the strength needed to hold the weight of heavy doors at 160 degrees the J160 is a bigger hinge and in line with industry demands we have been able to integrate the soft close mechanism, a premium feature which delivers a smooth, controlled shutting motion, mitigating the risk of heavy doors being slammed or fingers being trapped. The J160 can also be fitted to very thin doors, with a minimum depth of 18mm, again making it suitable for the type of decorative panels often employed as hidden or secret doors.
Although the J95 hinge can hold the same weights as the J160 it is smaller in size so not does not allow for incorporation of the soft close functionality however soft close is by no means unavailable to anyone fitting large cabinet doors with J95 concealed hinges. All products in the J95 range are compatible with the DC200 damper catch- a unique interior-mounted soft damper which applies late close control to doors weighing up to 40kg and up to 3m in height. Like the integrated soft close mechanism in the J160, the DC200 slows the motion of the door late in its arc and brings it to a smooth, gentle close. It also includes a latch which holds the door shut.
