Lateral Opening Door Hinge and Hardware System

Ideal for Tight Spaces

Doors often get in the way, especially when installed in small or oddly shaped places. In most cases, the leaf has to be a particular size to cover an opening fully. Therefore, reducing its size is never an option. Our lateral door hinge addresses the main problem: the opening mechanism.

Our lateral opening door hinges significantly reduce the required swing radius. That allows you to fully open same-sized doors without striking items within the traditional swing clearance. In small spaces, this frees you valuable room to keep other stuff. 

Heavy-Duty Capacity

One unique feature of Sugatsune’s lateral opening door system is its capacity to support heavy doors. Our LIN-X1000 lateral door hinges allow you to swing doors weighing up to 200 lbs without installing a track. That permits you to use the system beyond bathrooms and kitchens. Since our hinges work on doors up to 117” high and 43” wide, you can use them for office storage areas, multi-media centers, walk-in wardrobes, hidden rooms , and a whole lot more.. 

Clean Finish

Beyond avoiding obstacles and saving space, Sugatsune’s lateral opening door hinges have great aesthetic value. Our LIN-X1000 enables you to achieve doors that close flush with any adjacent vertical surface so they stay neatly out of your way. Coupled with the right pulls and color scheme, they have the potential to elevate your space’s visual appeal with that wow factor.

Soft-close Feature

Sugatsune’s lateral opening door hardware is fitted with our soft-close technology. That ensures the doors shut gently, eliminating that annoying slam sound. In addition, our soft-close feature protects children who may accidentally get in the way of closing doors.
