Grass America Announces TEC Soft-close Face Frame Hinge System

Table of Contents

Grass America, a leading supplier of functional hardware to the cabinet industry, announces the TEC Soft-close Hinge System. Engineered with precision, the TEC Soft-close face frame hinge system features an adjustable switch to regulate the closing action of cabinet doors- making doors close consistently, regardless of the size and weight. The sleek design elevates kitchen and bath cabinetry in commercial markets.

The TEC Soft-close hinge system offers quiet and effortless closing action every time. Unlike other hinges which have only one setting, the TEC system contains a three-tiered adjustment switch that controls the damping resistance, enabling fine-tuning of the closing action. Set at the highest level, the damping system has the most resistance and provides the longest closing action. The lowest-resistance setting allows light and small doors to be operated with very little closing pressure. The settings can be different for each hinge to achieve optimal and consistent closing action regardless of the size or weight of the door. This is ideal for homeowners, who can look up the instructions online and readjust the doors themself to fit personalized preferences.

TEC Self-close hinges feature three-dimensional adjustment (height, side, and depth), as well as a variety of available overlays for customization that allow for a standard traditional face frame look, or an overlay hinge for a frameless style. The low-profile cup allows for a shallow drilling depth of 11mm (7/16″), and the mechanism contains no parts that protrude into the interior of the cabinet. The one-piece hinge and base plate construction is sized for 42 and 45mm boring patterns.

The TEC Soft-close hinges are made in the USA of durable and long-lasting materials from time-tested design and manufacturing techniques. Grass America tests every mechanism for reliability and user experience.
