For top-opening lids, the HG-JHS9 and HG-JHS11 damper hinge sets have a self-open function for a majestic reveal. They are intended for inset lids and have an opening angle of 105 degrees. A touch latch* may be used to keep the lid closed and released when pressed. The HG-JHS9 hinges are surface-screw-fixed with the option for side or under panel mounting.
The opening speed of the lid is adjustable with a hex key for the HG-JHS11, and for installation, the top board may be cut out with a router to recess the hinge bodies, while the hinge brackets may be vertically screw-fixed on back board. In the event of no back board, there is bracket UKZ11-BL, available to horizontally screw-fix under panel.
