I added a servo drive to my aventos vertical lift cabinet due to its specific location in my design. In my application I have a single 36 wide by 18 high cabinet resting at the end of our "coffee bar" countertop. It's houses our coffee machine and a host of supplies one only needs to see when actually making coffe, and because of the length of span we chose to use an avengos vertical lift mech which worked out perfectly. Our modern contemporary design also informed the choice to go without a handle on this cabinet, instead choosing the servo drive. It was a great choice.If you aren't aware you should know that if you decide to go servo based (ergo automatic), the lift arms and hinge covers change to different models.The install was super smoothe. These engineers that came up with this stuff have really thought of everything!! The components are beautiful, and the servo wiring, etc are all really easy to do. If I have one thing keeping me from making this 5 stars it's simply the directions. They are very well illustrated so be certain you read, absorb and understand them before touching materials and you will be ok. I simply wish there was more guided English narrative to ensure I was doing the layout right. Make sure you have a metric ruler/tape Bc all dimensions are mm, no issue there, just an FYI. Because the directions are not issued primarily in English, many of the dimension symbols need to be looked up in the easy to reference table provided..and if you are using Servo drive, the servo drive manual wants you to reference the hinge manual (as if you didn't have servos)...BUT...make sure in that specific hinge manual you follow the measurements for Servo drive...which were printed in orange beneath the non-servo measurements in cases where this applies.A few of the diagrams (specifically locating the vertical centers of the hinge brackets that get mounted to the door) took us a few head scratching minutes to understand (a 3D render here would have helped), but overall we measured twice, read everything 3x and came out highly successful.The servo programming and setup were super easy, just as outlined, and we love how it functions in our space. If you are a cabinet maker you'll understand this rather instantly I'd say, and a homeowner that's handy and takes their time marking and laying everything out will do well also.Though I didn't find one, a step by step video outlining the installation of the hinges and servo drive would speed the interpretation of the install for any pro or do-it yourselfer alike. (Cabinet parts...contact me if I can make one for you ;) )Top quality product...very nicely made. For the automatic version, some sticker shock may apply...so consider where and why you'll use that feature.- M
We use CabinetParts.com quite a bit and are always happy with thier products and services.
The product arrived on time and was as advertised and in good condition.
Knobe and pulls were exactly what we ordered. Screws were a little short. Had to purchase 1 3/4 inch screws at Lowe's.
Helpful website and reasonable prices.
I had a broken old hinge for a complicated 2 door corner cabinet in the kitchen. The hinge is not available anymore. I got the part number for the old Blum hinge and took a video of the door swingng on the one decent hinge and sent it to their customer se
