SALICE: The Universal Hinge

A solution to most applications

The Salice universal hinge has been developed to provide a solution to most applications in the field of furniture doors.

The hinge can be used with a very wide range of door materials and thicknesses.

In addition to the classic cup for wooden doors, there is a plate-fixed version that is bonded to glass doors or mirrors.

And a third version with a screw-fixed plate for doors made of the special and thinner materials that are becoming increasingly popular, such as metal, ceramics, cements, quartz composites, HPL, HDF and MDF.

These plates are equipped with screws that have been developed specifically to obtain the highest holding strength in materials with a minimum thickness of 8 mm.

The customer can however use any other fixing system considered suitable for the purpose; in fact, the slots on the plate enable the use of any alternative fixing method.

All overlays with only one hinge

By simply changing the fixing position of the cup or the plate on the door, it is possible, with a single hinge and a single mounting plate, to provide a solution to a number of special applications and overlays, which include inset doors.

In this way the number of components required for the assembly of a range of different cabinets is considerably reduced.

The seven pivot movement, a key technical feature of these hinges, also provides a solution to a number of special applications, which include half-inset doors and doors with moulded or mitred edges.

Different options to open and close

There are also different options for the ways to open and close the doors.

In addition to the traditional sprung hinge, there is the soft closing version with integrated silicone-oil dampers, which delivers a soft and gradual closing action for doors of all sizes in any application.

It is also interesting to note that, with a very simple operation, it is possible to convert a sprung hinge into hinge with integrated soft-close and vice versa.

This hinge is also available with the Push self-opening system for handle-less doors.

A slight pressure at any point is sufficient for the door to self-open. A wide selection of magnetic release devices completes the range.

Aesthetic considerations are not neglected – the hinges can be supplied in nickel-plated or titanium finish with a complete range of hinge arm and flange cover caps which can be personalised on request.

The universal hinge is compatible with all Salice mounting plates, is fully adjustable in three directions and guarantees the possibility of a precise, immediate and calibrated adjustment.
