    Default Concealed Bench Seat hinges

    I found a bench seat hinge online, and when contacting the company they declined to provide manufacturer & model information.
    http://www.hardwaresource.com/Store_...ts.asp?Cat=788

    Due to being the one specifying the components, I would like to find manufacturer info or get an alternate product.

    These hinges look like a nice fit for what we're designing, a window seat bench with a lid that will sit flush to the wall without the need to use a reverse piano hinge.

    Does anybody recognize this product or have an alternate concealed hinge that will allow for tight to wall placement of the lid?

    Some features I do like about this product:
    SKU 796030 (with springs) will counter balance a seat or lid weighing between 17 and 26lbs (keeps the seat from slamming shut and makes it easier to open)

    allow the seat to open to 95 degrees

    the seat will move forward about 4" as it opens the full 95 degrees


    Thanks

    I used to go with the soss med duty invisibles and either rabbets or cleats [depending on size] and have the 3-4" back rail, but all of the ones I've done recently I've either done tilt out's, full drawers, or left open - sometimes with a shelf base or wire rack. Never found the various spring loaded ones to be much advantage overall.

    The improbable takes time, the impossible takes a little longer.

    Page 515 Hafele catalog.

    Which doesn't necessarily make Hafele the manufacturer, but if you are seeking to specify by maker, model, finish, etc., the Hafele catalog is a better source than some web reseller.
