Hinges allow doors and flaps to open and close smoothly. We stock a huge range of hinges in different styles - flap hinges, concealed hinges, half and full overlay, piano, butt and pivot (or knife) hinges. Some are spring-loaded, some are unsprung, and some are reverse sprung, meaning that they self-open. Soft close hinges have become popular and widely available in recent years, particularly in kitchen cabinets. Hinges allow you to lift up, pull open, swing up and push close doors and flaps. Some are flush with the door with zero protrusion. The opening angle varies considerably to suit almost any cupboard or door, from a small distance such as 30 degrees to three-quarter circle (270 degrees) for maximum access.
Hinges are most commonly found in bedroom and kitchen cabinets, but they are also used in refrigerator doors, folding tables and chest lids, to name a few. A lift-up lid stay can further enhance access. Hinges are generally quick and easy to install and suitable for domestic household use or commercially in the workplace. At Solmer we stock hinges, flaps and associated parts such as hinge arm cover caps, mounting arms and mounting plates in various styles.
