BH2A

The finial-tip BH2A hinge has been part of the Cliffside hardware line for many years. Designed with strength in mind, the BH2A is extruded, rather than stamped, and the finishes are plated to resist powdering and damage. Our BH2A hinge offers one of the tightest reveals in the industry; many top manufacturers use our hinges specifically for that reason.

Another point is Cliffside’s wide finish selection in this line. The BH2A with the standard steeple finial is available in 15 standard finishes. 11 of these are part of our signature hardware line and can be used in conjunction with Cliffside’s solid brass hardware suites. We offer two distinct antique brass hinge finishes, two oil-rubbed bronze hinge finishes, and a variety of other colors to suit many tastes and needs.

The BH2A-BALL is made by the same extrusion process as the BH2A; the only difference is the attractive ball finial which graces the barrel in place of the standard steeple tip. The 11 finishes of this hinge, which coordinate with our solid brass hardware suites, are the flagship of our line and represent the most popular selections among our customers.

Although several finishes of the BH2A-NF have been available since 2000, this line only came to its full fruition in 2010, when it was expanded to 11 finishes to join Cliffside’s hardware suites. Because the BH2A is offered in three different finial types (steeple, ball, and button), it is the most versatile hinge in the Cliffside line, providing numerous choices for any customer.

BH2A-NM

Cliffside’s BH2A-NM non-mortise cabinet hinge with the finial tip is one of our most popular hinges. Non-mortising hinges are designed specifically for easy use and installation. With a small inner leaf that fits cleanly inside the larger outer leaf, the hinges create a tight reveal that is no wider than the 1/16” thick leaf itself. Because of this design, these hinges can be installed in a shorter amount of time than it takes to mortise each door. The extruded construction ensures the strength of this hinge, and the brass material promises a piece of higher quality and staying power than any other hinges on the market.

The biggest advantage to this hinge is the variety of finishes that Cliffside offers. The NM hinge with the finial tip is available with 18 available finishes. All of the finishes of Cliffside’s solid brass hardware suites can be had in this hinge, making it a great match to coordinate a whole roomful of cabinetry.

The BH2A-NM-BALL cabinet hinge shares nearly all of its dimensions with the original finial-tip, save for the overall length, which is slightly shorter because of the ball-shaped end. Each leaf of every Cliffside hinge is constructed from a single piece of brass. Available in 11 finishes to match all of our solid brass suites, the demand for Cliffside’s NM-BALL has been outstanding: it was developed due to customer demand, and it continues to fly off the shelves.

BH3A

Cliffside’s solid brass hinge line has sizes ranging from large to small. The BH3A hinge is the largest mortised offering in the Cliffside line. It is available in 18 attractive finishes: the 11 colors of the signature hardware line, along with Nickel Chrome and Old Silver. The BH3A is manufactured using the same extrusion process as the BH2A, but its heavier barrel and longer length make it ideal for larger doors, or for those customers who request a bolder statement from their cabinet hinges.

The BH3A hinge is offered with an attractive minaret finial. Its 8mm barrel is ideal for use in any project. Originally non-adjustable, this piece was formerly known as the BH3NA, but now the adjustability of this hinge makes it a smart choice for cabinetmakers, and with screws finished to coordinate with all of our colors, the BH3A also has finishes available to match each of our solid brass hardware suites. This hinge is simply a great selection for use in any kitchen or bath with inset cabinets.

BH3A-NM

The BH3A-NM non-mortise hinge bridges the gap between the smaller BH2A-NM and the larger AHI. Added to Cliffside’s hinge line due to customer demand, the BH3A-NM is the newest hinge to grace Cliffside’s shelves. With the same attractive finial tip as the standard BH2A-NM, the BH3A-NM is a longer and more graceful version of the same hinge. With a larger amount of material, the BH3A-NM is more durable, designed to hold taller doors where higher strength capacity is a must-have. The extruded construction common to all Cliffside hinges is also a factor here, as is the painstaking attention of our European hinge craftsmen.

With 11 signature finishes, the BH3A-NM offers a wide selection. These finishes are designed to coordinate with Cliffside’s solid brass hardware suites, allowing for a unified look throughout any kitchen or bath. The BH3A-NM is an important addition to Cliffside’s non-mortise line because it fills in the space between the non-mortise BH2A-NM and the non-mortise AHI, creating a progression of sizes for inset cabinets that gives a wide range of choice. Simply put, the BH3A-NM is versatile to use and superior in quality.

3-8-OFFSET

Since 2009, the 3-8-OFFSET hinge line has been expanded dramatically. Cliffside began with four finishes: our dark European Antique Brass, a lighter Oxidized Brass, Polished Brass, and Silver Satin. During our 2009 line expansion, customer demand for darker finishes enticed us to add the Black, Old Antique, and Venetian Bronze finishes (pictured at left) in that year, as well as the Polished Nickel, due to that color’s rising popularity.

In 2010, when Cliffside introduced our full line of hardware suites, we expanded our hinge offerings even further, adding the final three missing colors (Iron, Old Copper, and Polished Chrome) and completing our line of 3-8-OFFSET. Now, all of these items are shown on our website and in our literature, with a finish to coordinate with each solid brass hardware suite that Cliffside offers.

The 3-8-OFFSET is developed with the same painstaking construction as all of our hinges, relying on brass extrusion to create the strongest possible piece while reducing the risk of flaking finishes and powdery pins. At the same time, Cliffside offers the hardware industry’s widest finish selection in extruded offset hinges, ensuring that our customers’ expectations are met — and exceeded — with every purchase.

AHI and AHO armoire hinges

The Cliffside line of brass armoire hinges comes in two styles: a non-mortising inset hinge, and an offset armoire hinge. Although these are called “armoire hinges”, they are useful for a variety of applications. Their most common use is as large pantry door hinges, entertainment center hinges, and for long doors where a highly decorative look is sought. The decorative finial of the armoire hinge has proven to be one of its most popular features.

The AHI non-mortise hinges are a series that has seen recent expansion for Cliffside. With the advent of our hardware suites, it became necessary to increase the number of hinge finishes we offered in all of our items; the AHI was no exception. Adding the Polished Chrome and the Venetian Bronze completed this line in 2010, after the Polished Nickel was provided to complement the original eight finishes in 2007.

The AHO is an offset armoire hinge, and is the largest piece in the Cliffside hinge line. Both the AHI (above) and the AHO are two-piece, lift-off hinges, making these pieces easy to install and transport. Doors can easily be separated from the cabinet frame during transportation to make moving the cabinets less hazardous. The AHO is designed for a 3/8-inch overlay door, so it can be used with the same door designs as the 3-8-OFFSET series, just as the AHI can be used alongside the BH2A-NM and BH3A-NM non-mortising hinges. All of our armoire hinges are made with the same precision and Old World craftsmanship that our customers expect from Cliffside’s hinges. These pieces are simultaneously decorative and functional and are a great choice for any inset or offset cabinet manufacturing.

Cliffside’s armoire hinges are available in 11 signature finishes. Both armoire hinges have a quirk in their finish line: rather than the brushed golden “AE” finish that is available in Cliffside’s smaller hinge lines, the AHI and AHO have the Bronze Satin finish, a color with similar tone but a slightly different patina. Additionally, all Cliffside armoire hinges are faced; this means that you must specify a left-hand hinge or a right-hand hinge when ordering. When viewing the door from the front of the cabinet, left-hand hinges are used to hang the door hinged on the left side, while right-hand hinges are simply the opposite.
