Salice push to open doors and drawers3/29
This is mainly for Dennis Beam. I build faceframe cabinets with 1/2" overlay doors & drawers. Customer wants no hardware on fronts. Could you give me the part number for a 155 degree hinge that is push to open and also will the push to open drawer guides work on a overlay operation. If so, what is the part # for the 21"guides? I use the rapido hinges on my typical doors. Will I need to also use the push to open magnetic catch on the doors? Thanks for your help.
You too huh?
I need a push to open sink tray flipper door. I can make one with hinges and a Blum tipon plunger, but was wondering if a unit exists that's already made and designed. This is for a full Euro look.
Hello Robert & Leo,
I will answer the hinge question first. For the Push hinge (self opening) you will need both the hinge and a magnetic release device. The magnet does 2 things. First it holds the door in the closed position and second, it acts as a release device to begin the opening movement. The magnetic release device can either be recessed or it can be surface mount.
Here are the catalog pages for the Push hinge and for the release device.
For the tip-down sink front, there isn't anything specifically for this but the 110 degree Push hinge with the recessed magnet is frequently used due to the compact, discrete appearance.
More on the Push hinge release devices.

Thank you Dennis Beam. I can always count on you for help on Salice products.
I just noticed you have 1/2” overlay doors. For this you will use a full overlay hinge and a 6mm face frame mounting plate.
Has this virus slowed you down at all?
Thanks again Dennis Beam. After turning 62 in August and also having 2 total knee replacement surgery's during 2019, I am kinda in a semi retirement mode. I have been in the cabinet business for 32+ years and am ready to slow down a little. I am still doing as much as I want. The virus has not affected me much in our rural area here in Georgia. The governor just mandated a shelter in place order today that will go into affect on Friday. This may change things.
Stay safe and thanks again on the help with the Salice products.
You’re a young man. I turn 69 in May. I still have my original knees but my wife had one replaced in August 19. So I know what you went through.
On no Dennis, you are not allowed to be 69. Unless you are planning to work until you are 85. You are way too valuable a resource for this community for us to let you go. A world in which we need to figure things out for ourselves? Madness, sheer madness! Stay safe, and thank you for everything you do for us.
Thanks, Ex-Pat. I have been with an outstanding company for the past 27 years and it has been fun being part of this forum. I don't know about 85 but I plan to keep kicking for a while longer.
