Expanding Design Opportunities and Functions with Adjustable Concealed Hinges

Adjustable concealed hinges elevate modern and contemporary wall and door opening design, without sacrificing functionality. Determining the right type of hinge rests in the function of the door. Multiple factors of consideration vary from frequency of door use to composition, weight, height, and structure of the door. Additional consideration must be made for load capacity, and special applications such as fire doors, cladding, hidden frames, and power supplies. Technological advances allow adjustable concealed door hinges to support weights exceeding 650 lbs. and can be used for fire doors up to 180 minutes, allowing more flexibility with sleek, flush designs in nearly all applications with functionality being the most significant factor. Adjustable concealed hinges support ideal design in luxury condos, apartments, hotels and prolifically designed residences. In order to maintain the functionality of a door opening, adjustability is an important factor.
