Thin fronts - EXPANDO T technology

Easy assembly

Our new attachment system for thin fronts is based on EXPANDO T technology. Assembly is simple — drill, insert and secure the screws. With sufficient stability and strength, front materials of 8-14 mm may be used.

Assembly, adjustment and removal

Assembly is easy, first drill a 10 mm diameter hole that is just 6 mm in depth. Hinge cup drilling is no longer required for hinges. Attachment positions stay the same for lift and box systems.

Innovative attachment method

A steel pull-in anchor ensures a secure fit for harder materials, while plastic jaws secure the fit for softer materials.
