Aluminum Continuous Geared Hinges | Heavy Weight
DHHD157 | Full Surface Hinges
• DHHD157 is an Aluminum Continuous Geared Full Surface Hinge that provides a 1/16″ door inset. It can be used with any standard frame without hinge preps, and either with or without reinforcements depending on door weight. The frame face must have a flat surface at least 7/8″ wide. Clearance between the hinge edge of the door and the frame rabbet may be from 1/32″ to 1″ (0.8 – 25.4mm). “HD” models have additional bearings and frame fasteners for heavy-duty application.
• All DH Hinges are supplied approximately 1″ to 1-5/16″ shorter than the nominal door height to avoid threshold or carpet clearance problems. If the hinge must be trimmed shorter, first determine the correct hand of the door and orientation of the hinge. Then mark and trim from the bottom of the hinge only – do not cut from the top end.
