About Continuous Hinges
Phoenix continuous hinges

The continuous hinges in this section of the website are a selection from Cooke Brothers full continuous hinge range. The sizes have been carefully chosen to provide hinges of the right material, widths and strengths to meet most customers' needs. If you cannot find a hinge to match your requirements, please contact Cooke Brothers Main Sales Office who will be able to advise on suitable hinges from the comprehensive hinge range.

Standard Continuous Hinge Lengths

Although all sizes in the continuous hinge range can be produced in any length, for practical purposes it is usually stocked and sold in standard lengths. The main length is 1829mm (6ft).

Imperial and Metric Sizes

The full continuous hinge range is based on both traditional imperial products and modern metric products. To assist your selection the products, whether tooled as imperial or metric, have all been dimensioned in millimetres. Continuous hinges are displayed in hinge leaf thickness order, starting with the lightest.

Continuous Hinge Tolerances

Some minor variations to the standard sizes must be expected. The hole centres stated represent the approximate centres for any pair of holes. Pre-drilling the door or frame for a complete length of continuous hinge using multiples of the centres shown is not recommended. For accurate hole positions over the whole length contact technical sales.

A Hinge leaf thickness The material thickness should be selected first
