Using this catalog Step 1: Determine your application

Go to the page for your application: face frame page 9, panel page 11, or narrow frame aluminum door page 13.

Step 2: Calculate the power factor Determining the Power factor (PF) is important for chosing the lift mechanism that works best with your cabinet and doors. It is calculated by multiplying the cabinet height in inches by the exact combined door weight (including handle) in pounds.

Power factor (PF) = cabinet height [inch] x combined door weight* [lb] * For calculations, use the conversion chart below to determine combined door weight in decimal form.

Example: Cabinet height: 30 inches Combined door weight: 23 lb 14 oz (14 oz = .9 lb see chart below). Weight converted to decimal is 23.9 lb Power factor (PF) = 30 x 23.9 Power factor (PF) = 717

Accessories Angle restriction clip

Clearance above cabinet Z

This clip restricts the opening angle of the top hinges of an AVENTOS lift system to 104 degrees. This may be useful for cabinets with large crown moldings or installations with little clearance above the cabinet. TDH = Top Door Height

Using the AVENTOS angle restriction clip requires the installation of an extra #7 x 35 mm (1-3/8") mounting screw on each of the lift mechanisms.
