Salice soft close with touch latch4/8/15
For frameless my go to hinge is Salice 110 degree soft close. Customer wants touch latch. Can soft close hinge be used with touch latch?
I think I would lean towards the Salice PUSH series hinges for the application, with free swing and touchlatches coming in a distant second.
I agree with Jim.
The soft close (self close spring) wants to close the door and the touch latch wants to open the door. The push/pull conflict would be less than acceptable. The touch latch probably would not even open the door.
The Push hinge system uses a hinge with a self opening spring and a magnetic device to hold the door in the closed position. By applying slight pressure to the door, it will automatically open (almost completely). To close the door you will push the door closed until the magnet engages and holds the door in the closed position.
You could also use a free swing hinge with a traditional touch latch.
If you don't have a current Salice catalog with the Push hinge included, I would be happy to send one.
I wasn't aware of those type hinges. Dennis please provide number of hinge and magnetic strike plate number. Also what hinge do I need to get 1-1/4" overlay? I'm putting on finished end panels and want
I usually use extended end panels (box + 7/8") for applied ends.
Here are some details and part numbers for the Push hinge.
If using the 94 degree full overlay hinge, the maximum overlay will be 15/16". If you use the 110 degree full overlay hinge, the maximum overlay will be 7/8" The maximum overlay is determined using a 0mm mounting plate and the maximum TAB distance. (9mm for the 94 degree hinge and 6mm for the 110 degree hinge).
These are installed exactly as you would any Salice hinge. The magnet can be either surface mount or recessed.
Thanks for responses. This time I am just going to use the normal touch latch
