Different materials, such as chipboard, HPL or ceramic, in impressively thin versions from just 8 mm are currently very popular.

The basis of the new Blum fastening system for thin fronts is Expando T. Tie-downs are made of steel for firm hold in hard front materials, while soft materials ensure that the plastic jaws are secure. Expando T is mounted in a 10 mm diameter hole with a drilling depth of only 6 mm. The fastening system can be used throughout doors, pull-outs and selected flaps. With Clip top Blumotion for thin doors there are further advantages for the furniture producers. The new attachment eliminates the cup drilling, and the standard mounting plate can be used at the existing mounting position. The Blumotion damper is integrated in the hinge. Also, the cabinet does not need to be adjusted. Expando T impresses with its proven function and the usual quality from Blum.
