Concealed 270 degree open hinge?

fourambluesSeptember 7, 2012

I've been spending a lot of time on the kitchen forum lately, am a first time visitor here. Tuns out one of my cabinets is very hard to access with its 110 degree door swing. I really need 270. All my hinges are concealed soft close. Is there such a thing as a concealed 270 degree hinge (also called fold-back, I think)? Even better if it's soft close. TIA for any info you can give me!

180* not enough?
Link below, but frameless style.

Here is a link that might be useful: 270*

Thanks for the link, Casey. I failed to mention that I've got face frame cabs. But if it exists for frameless, I can probably find it for framed.

180 would be fine for access, but I do worry about the door getting ripped off the hinges. I'd consider 180; do you have any recommendations?

Thank you!

I don't think it will work for faceframes, because to fold back it must also clear the faceframe's width, and the mechanics of the hinge thereby gets more complicated than just having to clear the 3/4" box side. Plus the manuf. does not know how wide _your_ FF's are...

OK, thanks for the advice, Casey. 180 it is!
