Salice hinge question7/11
Hello all. I have a friend that needs a few new Salice hinges as his old ones are worn out(20+ years old). I have two questions. First, does Salice warrant their hinges like Blum does? Second, I am a Blum shop and can order from Richelieu, but I am not sure what hinges to order. Can anyone help identify this hinge and it's current model number? Thanks
Warranty after 20+Yrs?, come on man.
This is a 165 degree hinge, half overlay. Itís hard to tell the mounting plate thickness from the photo but it appears to be, possibly a 3mm plate. If you look on the top of the plate you should see the numbers 00, 02, or 03. This will tell me the plate thickness and will insure the same overlay will be achieved with any replacements.
This hinge pre-dates 1994 when I joined Salice America. Back in the 1980s and early 1990s, the 165 degree hinge was commonly used for all of the doors in a kitchen (Particularly in Detroit). After a time however, most shops moved to using a 110 degree or 120 degree opening hinge for kitchens.
Just email your address to me, and the number of hinges needed, I will see that some replacements are shipped to you.
Yes, Salice does offer a lifetime warranty.
@Robin, one of the reasons I am a Blum shop is they stand behind their product, as do I. Blum guarantees their hinges for life, and will gladly replace any broken or worn out part. My work comes with a "my lifetime" guarantee that the workmanship will not fail under normal use within the specifications of products. This is one of the ways I distinguish myself from the compitition.
@Dennis, thanks again, and here is a picture of the plate, I could not attach a picture to the email I sent
I just sent you an email. Please reply with the address and the number of hinges needed.
Mind blowing. Dennis Bean is king.
'Dennis Bean is king.'
I was thinking the same thing. Really couldn't ask for better product support than that.
Thanks guys. This is the way everyone at Salice America treats customers.
Thank you so much Dennis. Great to know Salice stands behind their product. I will definitely consider your products inn the future.
