lr 32 system/ frameless cabinet
« on: December 29, 2017, 03:45 PM »
This is my first try with the frameless cabinet using the lr 32 system.
Cabinet is all assembled, drawer is in. Doors do not fit properly.
I have ordered the hardware twice. I am using Blum 170 degree hinges for frameless inset cabinets.
On the side of cabinet I am in 37 mm,  the center of the screws are approximately on a line 38.5 mm inset.
On the door, the recess is 5mm and the start of the hinge is at 2.5-3mm inset.
I have enclosed two photos, one with door open and the other with it closed, and you can see how edge of door is out approximately 18 mm. I have adjusted it in as far as it will go. AM I using the wrong hardware? Did I do something wrong. If I move mounting plate in on side of cabinet I can solve problem, but then what is the good of the lr 32 system if I do that? thank you.

I think you will  find you need to have your system holes at 37mm plus the door thickness.

Typically frameless cabinets use an overlay hinge, not an inset hinge.

The 37 mm will work with the overlay hinge.

With frameless cabinets you want the door to overlay the frame so that all is visible is the door.  You don’t want to see the frame as you would with the inset hinge.

Inset cabinets are the hallmark of fine cabinetry when using a face frame.

You need to buy a different hinge.
