Elan Series from Sugatsune America

Feb 2, 2014

After twenty years of introducing the first soft closing mechanism for kitchen cabinetry, Sugatsune is proud to offer a complete line of lid stays that all employ: soft-close, free stay, and lift assist. The ELAN series emphasize easy installation, slim body profile, and easy to order. To prevent slamming, each ELAN is equipped with the patented Lapcon damping system. Past certain angles ELAN offers a free stay so opening the cabinet door to the maximum angle is not necessary, making it ideal for the shorter users. The larger the doors, the heavier they are so lift assist is a beneficial feature for every user. Use ELAN series for upward opening doors, vertical lift up doors, up & over doors, and bi-fold doors on wall cabinets.
