Learn About Soft-Close Hinge Adjustment and See How to Adjust Soft-Close Hinge Speed
Thank you for joining us today at Sugatsune America. Today, we’re going to be discussing the HG-JV65 Soft-Closing Hinge for Vertical Use. We’ll explain the soft-close hinge adjustment, show you how to adjust soft-close hinge speed, and more.
What Is a Self-Closing Hinge? Easy & Efficient to Use!
This hinge features:
- Soft-close: The hinge supplies a slow, controlled closing motion without slamming.
- Self-close: What is a self-closing hinge? This simply means the hinge closes by itself once the hinge reaches 35° from the closed position.
The Benefits: Safety, Convenience, Efficiency
This design will help you ensure that doors actually close (a common problem when the operator does not watch the door close completely) and stay closed. This reduces contamination, and the banging and jostling of doors during everyday use.
Together, these two features make operation more ergonomic and much faster for the operator, as they can simply give the door a push and it will handle the finesse of closure by itself—without resulting in the door slamming, thanks to the soft-close feature.
How to Adjust Soft-Close Hinge Speed: Easy Adjustment with Hex Key
The main feature of this hinge specifically is that there is an adjustment with a simple hex key for choosing different soft-closing speeds. So you can make your door close faster, close slower, depending on your application.
When we were designing the HG-JV65, we thought carefully about Universal Design principles like user-friendliness and ergonomics. When it came to how to adjust soft-close hinge speed, we went with a simple hex key operation. Just turn the key to increment the speed setting.
Gauge Helps with Soft-Close Hinge Adjustment
Each hinge includes a gauge that will allow you to see the closing speed setting, whether you want it faster or slower, so that you can match the speed up amongst all the hinges on the enclosure. This makes the soft-close hinge adjustment much easier when using multiple hinges together.
HG-JV65 Hinge Features & Installation Options
Our HG-JV65 hinges feature screw covers that can conceal the screw mounting holes, for a cleaner look.
The hinges can be installed on solid material surfaces, or they can be used on aluminum extrusion frames.
They come in two color options: black and white. Because what is a self-closing hinge without useful color options!
