The new T-type hinges from cabinet hardware expert Titus reliably deliver the soft closing action preferred by end users, whilst also offering decisive advantages for furniture manufacturers. They feature the company’s 3Way snap-on mounting, which makes them fast and easy to install, they can be used with a wide range of door thicknesses and types, they are tolerant of misalignment and drilling variations, and they have passed FIRA tests for BS 6222-2-2009, Test Level H.
T-type hinges feature the renowned Titus Confident Close action. This is the consumer-preferred reliable and consistent soft-closing action characterised by late-start deceleration and quiet landing in the last stage of closing, as the door reaches the cabinet side. The proprietary Titus multi-purpose integrated damping technology is transversally positioned in the hinge cup, which ensures dependable life-long damping with no bounce-back.
The dampers used in these innovative hinges are single-direction hydraulic types that are fully sealed to eliminate the possibility of oil leakage. They are easy to adjust, which ensures that consistent performance can be achieved on doors with a wide range of different dimensions and weights.
The unique 3Way tool-less snap-on mounting plate used in T-type hinges offers intuitive hinge-to-plate mounting in three directions: the hinge can be presented to the plate from the front, from the back or from the top and, with just one sharp tap of the hand, it will click easily and positively into place.
This greatly simplifies door installation especially with tall doors that need four or even five hinges. The unique design of the mounting plate also reinforces stability and rigidity while maintaining smooth hinge operation.
Another key benefit of T-type hinges is that they need only shallow drillings for the hinge cups, which means they can be used on doors with thicknesses from 15-26 mm.
Titus T-type hinges are available in standard and pie-cut versions. They can be supplied with cross-mounting or linear mounting plates that simplify both hinge alignment and hinge-to-plate attachment.
