How to Choose the Correct Control Arm Length

In General:

  • 230mm for shallow units (upper cabinets, etc.)
  • 330mm for deeper units (base cabinets, etc.)
  • 530 for larger opening (pantries and closets, etc.)

The largest possible control arm (dictated by cabinet depth) will result in a smoother action.

The cranked connections (F above) can be adjusted in and out to provide length flexibility.

Shelf or under counter mountings provide the most flexibility (as against rear mounts).

If control arms are to be rear mounted (i.e. on the back of the cabinet or wall) the maximum set back for the pivot is:

  • 230mm – 38 cm (15 in.)
  • 330mm – 48 cm (19 in.)
  • 530mm – 65 cm (25.5 in.)

Minimum and maximum door openings (calculated using European hinges) are as follows:

  • 230mm – min. 38 cm (15 in.), max. 61 cm (24 in.)
  • 330mm – min. 48 cm (19 in.), max. 81 cm (32 in.)
  • 530mm – min. 65 cm (25.5 in.), max 122 cm (48 in.)

Because there are so many variations, according to cabinet depth and door opening, etc., experience in the work place will determine the most suitable control arm length. It is best always to bear in mind that the 230mm is for upper cabinets, etc., the 330mm for base cabinets, etc., and the 530mm for pantries and closets.

Hinge Compatibility

Any hinge design to carry the weight of a bi-fold door will work. Ezyfold does not carry any weight; it only guides the door.

Hinge selection will define opening degrees up to 180 degrees.
