Hi Everyone,

I have a pantry cabinet with a single door, 1/2” overlay on all sides.

Buying Blum blumotion soft close hinges 110 degree. With 3mm plate.

What size spacers do I need to use on the one side of the sliders to clear the door, since I won’t have zero clearance hinges? (Making new drawer boxes based on the spacers).

Was considering using a zero protrusion hinge, but they all say 155 degree and I don’t want them to open that far, will hit fridge.

Thanks in advance for your help!

If you want to play it safe…..go 2 inches.

The loss of drawer space should not be a consideration , as it will be minimal

Thanks for the quick reply!

Thats more than i was expecting. Orignally i was guessing 3/4” to 1”.

Hinges won’t be in the way, just the door itself.

I guess I can go with 1 1/4”

I’m assuming your using the straight arm hinge with the 3mm plate?
the 95 deg hinge says the door protrusion would be 17.5mm
the 110 deg hinge says the door protrusion would be 15mm
So 1” would work with plenty to spare.

Using 71B35550 hinge, drilling cup at 5mm to get 1/2” overlay on door.

173H7130 3mm plate

Where do you find the protrusion details? I didn’t have any luck when searching, probably overlooked it.

You have to download the brochure on Concealed hinges.
Page 14
Here is the info for the hinge # your using
Says you only need a 3mm tab for 13mm overlay
(4mm wouldn’t hurt. 5mm you will get away with it, but you may not have enough adjustment if you have to move the door over.)

If you want maximum interior space, you also have these options:

Blum 155 degree zero-protrusion hinge (which can be used with their restriction clip to reduce opening angle to 110 deg.)

Blum 125 degree zero-protrusion hinge.

Note that the “zero-protrusion” applies to the door—the hinge still protrudes a bit (see Blum spec.s)
