With the constant evolution of design, Sub-Zero has consistently executed to meet the needs of designers and customers alike and will be doing so once again with its “New Generation” Integrated Hinge System.
The new generation integrated hinging system can be found on all full-size Sub-Zero Integrated products: Columns, talls, and NGI wine storage units.
The new generation hinging system provides the ideal combination of customer convenience and design flexibility. While still maintaining a 1/8″ reveal, the hinging system allows easy access into the unit without the worry of damaging adjacent cabinetry or appliances.
Owners will appreciate the soft opening and soft closing that the new hinging system provides, so bottles and condiments stored in the door don’t “shake, rattle and roll.”
Past 60°, the door stays open, making it easier than ever to unload groceries. And with a maximum door swing of 105°, the unit is always easy to access.
The new generation hinging system also provides greater design flexibility, since it can accommodate multiple installation options such as handle-to-handle, handle-to-hinge, and hinge-to-hinge without the use of a partition. Because of this flexibility, the applications in which NGI product can be installed are endless.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The doors do not go beyond the width of the unit. When you open the door, the hinge first swings forward, then swings open – but the door stays within the width of the unit and does not intrude into adjacent cabinetry or other integrated appliances.
