Slim-Integrated SI.1 Concealed Refrigerator Hinge

Vectis® SI Series Hinges for Top-Of-The-Line Kitchen Appliances

When looking at high-end kitchen appliances, everything from the materials to the features offered focuses on quality and luxury.  One of the most important aspects to consider when designing a built-in, panel-ready, or integrated appliance is the door hinging system.

Today’s high-end kitchens are often designed with concealed appliances in the plans.  Keeping that in mind, Weber Knapp’s team of expert engineers created the SI Hinge Series; integrating Vectis® motion control technology into a quality, feature-packed solution.

SI.1 Hinge Design Features and Specifications

It’s no secret that multiple hinges can be integrated into kitchen design to upgrade functionality. With a desire to provide manufacturers with a superior option to hinges currently available on the market, our team has designed the SI.1 Hinge. Invisible to the casual glance when viewing the door from the front and/or sides, this concealed hinge takes appliances – primarily refrigerators – to the next level.

In addition, the SI.1 Hinge was designed with both interior and exterior aesthetics in mind. The SI.1 Hinge allows appliances set between two cabinets to easily match their look and create a seamless kitchen design. In addition, this hidden appliance door hinge’s slim design allows it to blend into the background when the doors are open.

Designed to work with built-In, panel-ready, and integrated doors, the SI.1 Hinge offers a plethora of features, including:

  • Flush door panel mounting w/ a 1/8” reveal
  • Self-closing
  • Soft open stop
  • High cycle life (300,000 cycles)
  • High load capacity
  • High-strength and durable materials
  • Max. Door Width: 30 inches
  • Max. Door Weight: 160 lbs
  • Max. Opening Angle: 110º
  • Available in White, Gray, or any custom color (based on volume desired)

Hidden Hinge Refrigerator

Whether it’s for the residential or commercial refrigerator, hinge selection makes a world of difference.

In the contemporary kitchen, the refrigerator is not just an appliance – it’s part of the space’s overall design and ambiance. Refrigerators that stand out for the wrong reasons (being in the way, visually disruptive) downgrade even the most carefully designed high-end kitchens.

To that end, there’s almost no better major appliance suited for a custom concealed hinge than the refrigerator. With modern kitchen design now trending toward open, yet fully functional spaces, a hidden fridge hinge give the appliance more versatility with placement and aesthetics. At the same time, the hidden refrigerator door hinge does not compromise the appliance’s utility – there’s no difference in functionality between a fridge with a standard hinge and a custom concealed hinge’s.

Put simply, the SI Series hinges let refrigerators easily do more for any kitchen.
