The face fix hinge offers a compact solution with the added benefits of quick and easy installation as well as including a self closing mechanism.
* Please note: This hinge requires special drilling which is not offered as part of our hinge hole drilling service.
Discontinuation of COMPACT 33.3600
Blum have now discontinued their current face frame solution, the 33.3600 COMPACT hinge, together with its associated backplate, 133.0240.
The new solution when a face frame application is required is the COMPACT 38B355AF22, a one-piece (hinge and plate combined) hinge. On the door, the COMPACT 38B355AF22 only needs 11mm in depth for its boss hole as opposed to the 13mm for the COMPACT 33.3600.
The key change between the two installations relates to where to drill on the cabinet. The graphic on this page offers a guide through these differences by following the orange elements.
The overlay situation is identical between the two variants, eg if the minimum distance for plate drilling is used they both give 35mm overlay.
