FastFix hinge cup and pie-cut corner hinges are the latest additions to the popular and successful T-type hinge range from cabinet hardware expert, Titus. The new-generation T-type hinges reliably deliver the soft closing action preferred by end users and requires only a shallow hinge cup, which makes them suitable for use with door thicknesses ranging from 15 to 26mm – and they have passed FIRA tests for BS 6222-2-2009, Test Level H.
FastFix hinge cup features pre-mounted 8mm diameter expanding dowels that enable precise tool-free insertion and hold the hinge cup accurately in place until the dowels are tightened, making hinge attachment quick and easy. Triple-start screws provide additional time savings.
T-type pie-cut corner hinge offers full door opening to 170º, giving easy access to cabinet interiors. And, when both doors are opened, the first is locked at 25º to the second so that both move away from the user and are prevented from hitting adjacent cabinets. The pie-cut hinge uses a standard 35mm diameter drilling pattern and needs no edge drilling.
The T-type hinges feature the renowned Titus Confident Close, the consumer-preferred reliable and consistent soft-close damping characterised by late-start deceleration and quiet landing in the last stage of closing as the door leans against the cabinet side. The proprietary Titus multi-purpose integrated damping technology is positioned transversal in the hinge cup, ensuring life-long damping with no bounce-back and superior performance.
In addition, the hinges are exceptionally tolerant of misalignment and drilling variations. Their unique 3Way tool-less snap-on mounting plate, which offers intuitive hinge-to-plate mounting in three directions, greatly simplifies door installation, especially with tall doors that need four or even five hinges. The unique design of the mounting plate reinforces stability and rigidity while maintaining smooth hinge operation.
The hinges feature the renowned Titus Damper Inside technology, which ensures reliable and consistent life-long damping without rebounce. The dampers are single-direction hydraulic types that are fully sealed to eliminate the possibility of oil leakage. The damping is easy to adjust, which maintains consistent performance on doors with a wide range of different dimensions and weights.
