This is where two doors are positioned in front of a cabinet centre panel, with the required overall reveal between them. In other words, the door has a smaller over-lay and cranked hinges (Basis B = 3 mm) are used.
The door is positioned inside the cabinet,i.e. next to the cabinet side. Here too, a gap is needed so that the door can open reliably. Heavily cranked hinges (Basis B-4 mm) are used.
Inset application The door is positioned inside the cabinet, i.e. next to the cabinet side. Here too, a gap is needed so that the door can open reliably. Heavily cranked hinges (Basis B =- 4 mm) are used.
The minimum reveal (also known as door clearance or minimum clearance) is the space required at the side for opening a door. The size of the minimum reveal depends on the cup distance C, the door thick- ness and the type of hinge selected. Radii on the door edges reduce the minimum clearance. The required minimum reveal is shown in the table for the respective hinge types
For half-overlay applications, the total reveal selected between the doors must be at least twice the door clearance. Both doors can then be opened at the same time.
Number of hinges per door: Door width, height and weight as well as the material quali- ty of the door are key factors that determine the number of hinges required. The factors encountered in practice differ widely from case to case. For this reason, the number of hinges specified in the diagram must be understood as a guide only. If in doubt, it is recommended to carry out a trial door mounting and adjust the number of hinges as necessary. For reasons of stability, distance X between the hinges must always be made as large as possible.
General determination of distances Mounting plates are available in various distances (0/1.5/3 and 5 mm). The effective height of the mounting plate is defined by distance D. Distance D is embossed on the top of each mounting plate. A larger distance D reduces overlay for full and half-overlay applications. On inset doors, a larger distance D increases the door reveal. To calculate the required distance, the minimum re- veal must first be determined from the table of mini- mum door reveals for the type of hinge concerned. The minimum reveal depends on the cup distance C and the door thickness. Minimum reveals can be re- duced by increasing the cup distance C and/or app- lying radii to the door edges. The table of minimum door reveals also shows the possible combinations of door thickness and cup distance C.
Toolless fast installation Toolless fast installation is distinguished by ergonomic handling. To begin with, all hinges are pushed onto the mounting plate from the front. The hinge arms are then lightly pressed onto the mounting plate so they engage with an audible . The hinge arm is now securely attached to the plate at five points and with zero play. As a general rule, the hinges are clipped onto the carcase from top to bottom. Hinges are removed in the opposite order, i.e. from bottom to top. The rear part of the hinge is pressed by thumb against the mounting plate while pushing on the release button. The hinge arm is now lifted off the mounting plate and the door can be removed towards the front.
Flash fast installation Flash fast hinge installation and removal merely requires the use of a standard cross- head screwdriver PZ 2. The socket securely expands in the wood simply by turning the Flash screw through 90°. A symbol shows that the hinge is locked in place.
