Since 1977, Blum has spent more than four decades perfecting custom kitchen component design, including the innovative lift system. Blum offers an extensive range of kitchen cabinet products and accessories to bring order and simplicity to the most important living space.
What are Blum lift systems?
A Blum lift system is a bespoke combination of components designed for easy, safe and convenient cabinet door operation. Unlike conventional hinges, Blum lift systems are designed to support vertical-opening cabinet doors of all shapes, sizes and weights.
The Blum lift system includes the cutting-edge Aventos lift system, which has been designed from top to bottom with practicality and movement in mind. Some of the key benefits of the Blum lift system for cabinet doors include:
- Full access – The Aventos lift system ensures maximum freedom of movement, keeping the cabinet door completely out of the way while accessing the cupboard contents.
- Opening and closing ease – All Blum lift system components can be adjusted to support a variety of cabinet door weights, ensuring effortless opening and closing at all times.
- Holds in any position – Rather than simply being open or closed, this elite system of vertical opening accessories safely and securely holds the door in any position, with variable stop technology.
- Harmonious Design – Seamless visual design lies at the heart of the Aventos system, which is kept 100% invisible from view when the cabinet doors are closed.
- Award-winning expertise – The Aventos system is from an established and reputable manufacturer, which has received numerous international awards over the years.
Blum’s lift systems are the ultimate in prestige and practicality for classical and contemporary kitchens alike. All of which are designed with quick and easy installation in mind, with no specialist knowledge or experience required.
