Cliffside’s BH2A-NM 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 fifteen standard finishes, ranging from bright and shiny Polished Nickel to dark and dramatic Old Antique. All of the finishes of Cliffside’s hardware suites can be had in this hinge, making it a great match to coordinate a whole roomful of cabinetry.

The BH2A-NM-BALL 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 tip. Designed for inset doors, all of Cliffside’s non-mortise hinges have the same solid brass extruded construction. Each leaf of Cliffside’s hinges is constructed from a single piece of brass.

This hinge is 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 nearly two years after its introduction. All of the Cliffside hinges are featured in our most current catalog, which is available for download on our website or by calling customer service.
