Pinet soft-close aluminium hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

Soft-close is a feature much admired among operators of equipment covers and doors for making usage more comfortable, more user friendly and potentially safer.

Consequently, we are pleased to launch the new PINET dampening hinges in aluminium which offer a 115° soft-close in three configurations.

Two torque damping levels are available to suit both lightweight and heavier doors in a range of industrial and office/domestic applications.

These clear anodized hinges are robust and appropriate for a multitude of industrial applications while also discretely installed where a “low-key” presence is required.

When paired with a matching spring hinge than an automatic soft-close action is possible. A system which does not require a latching mechanism unless security calls for it.
