Blum has launched its new Compact Blumotion series of concealed face-frame hinges with a built-in soft close. The hinges are appropriate for both full and partial overlay applications. The Blumotion soft-close mechanism is integrated into the small space of the hinge cup and helps eliminate the noise of cabinets doors slamming. The hinges are available in overlays from 5/16 in. to 1 9/16 in. The Blumotion feature can also be deactivated on one hinge for smaller or lighter doors.
