Home The Best of IBS

In this video, we join Matt Risinger at 2014 IBS where he visits the Sugatsune booth, one of his favorite hardware manufacturers. Risinger does a lot of hidden door videos and uses Sugatsune's adjustable concealed hinge hardware (the 160s and 190s are typical in his videos). These are truly unique in the adjustability they have—in and out as well as vertically and horizontally. He also demonstrates their pocket doors/barn door, which has a very small gap and a soft-close functionality. Lastly, he demonstrates some of their cabinet hardware, including the SLS-ELAN lift-assist vertical lift up & soft stay down hardware, which is super affordable compared to similar products.
