Continuous Hinges Installation Instructions

Continuous Hinges are easy to install, requiring no rebating when fitted on to the frame and door edges, or are equally easily fitted to the external faces.

Step 1

Detail of hinge fitted between the end faces of the door and frame. Care should be taken to ensure the frame and door thickness are sufficient to take the selected hinge between the end faces.
