With its adjustable soft close technology, the Olympia range broke the mould in terms of what is possible with concealed hinge motion.
But at Sugatsune, we’ve never been satisfied even with the most exceptional levels of functionality in our components. We know that, for our clients, appearances matter just as much.
That is why we are now adding cover caps and inline mounting plates to complement our Olympia hinges. Manufactured from hard-wearing steel with flawless nickel plating, these high-quality accessories benefit from our design teams’ expert eye for detail and tasteful appreciation of style.
The most beautiful concealed hinge just got more beautiful.
The plates, available for mounting direct to the cabinet interior or using dowels, provide a flusher fit and sleeker appearance. The three stylish body covers – one each for inset, 9-16mm overlay and 19-26mm overlay doors – complete the look by hiding the screws, guaranteeing a pristine appearance when doors are open as well as shut.
Both mounting plates and cover caps are suitable for Olympia 360 and H360 hinges, covering an extensive range of cabinet door weights and thicknesses.
Just in case you haven’t yet met our beautiful concealed hinge, here is the reasons why you should:
Olympia Hinge convenience, quality and control
The Olympia is the result of 80 years of expertise in component design and precision engineering applied to the humble cabinet hinge. It marks an evolution in the concealed hinge concept – a 30mm cup hinge built with Sugatsune’s patented Lapcon technology; a five-speed adjustable soft close damper.
Olympia’s dampening system is a unique five-speed rotary controlled close mechanism which we use across a range of door dampers. Most soft close dampers only have two settings, on or off, which doesn’t give much scope for adjusting the damper effect for doors of different sizes and weights. With five levels of adjustment, the Olympia damper affords a premium level of control, allowing cabinet makers and fitters to achieve a uniform soft close across several different doors in a kitchen or bathroom suite and so on.
The Olympia marks an evolution from our previous concealed cup hinge design, the 230. By incorporating the damper into the hinge mechanism, we created brand new functionality for a hinge, meaning there was now no need for cabinet makers to install both a damper and a hinge if they wanted soft, controlled close.
The Olympia provides an unobtrusive profile with a sleek looking design. We simplified installation by incorporating our innovative Turn Lock mounting system, meaning Olympia hinge units can be clipped to their mounting plate simply by pushing them into position from the top down. And once in place, vertical, horizontal and depth adjustments can be made via three screws on the top of the unit – meaning you can fine tune the final position of the door one-handed. We also offer the Olympia hinges for use with thicker doors up to 30mm.
Combination of Olympia and Aileron
We are far from finished with innovating with the Olympia lid stay. Having come up with a solution that combined a hinge mechanism and soft close damper in one for doors that open in a horizontal plane, we turned our attention to delivering the same convenience and control for box lids, trunks, chests and overhead cabinet flaps. The result is the AILERON, a three-in-one concept that combines a hinge, soft close and a stay for holding a lid in its open position. The AILERON offers a stay that needs no side mounting so need to add partitions to fit multiple stays for a heavier lid or door. With the AILERON available in two different orientations you can combine chest opening and overhead cabinet opening with the same form of stay to give a stylish uniform look with great functionality.
