Hinge Leaf Thickness
The hinge material thickness should be selected first as this establishes the range of continuous hinge most suitable for your application.
Hinge Pin Diameter
For each hinge leaf thickness there is a limited range of pin options between twice and five times the hinge leaf thickness.
Hinge Open Width
The overall open width of the hinge when the leaves are opened out flat i.e. to 180 degrees.
Hinge Knuckle Length
The length of the individual knuckles or joints.
Fixing Hole Information
Un-drilled hinges are referred to as ‘no hole.’
Hole Diameter not-countersunk
Referred to as ‘plain holes’.
Given when holes are countersunk and referred to as ‘CSK.’
Continuous Hinge Tolerances
Some variations to the normal size must be expected. The hole centres stated represent the approximate centres for any pair of holes.
Pre-drilling door or frame for a complete length of continuous hinge using multiples of the centres shown is not recommended.
Continuous Hinge Selection
The brief introduction to each continuous hinge range on the following pages provides a useful guide to selecting the
correct weight of continuous hinge for a particular application.
