Traditionally fitted to early panelled doors, HL Hinges are used in similar applications to H Hinges but with one leg shaped like a letter "L" to provide extra strength to heavier or damaged doors. This smaller version from our Rustix collection is an ideal finishing touch for kitchen cabinet doors and hand made, bespoke furniture or can be used for lightweight internal shutters and folding screens. Forming part of our "Rustix" range this hinge is expertly hand crafted using hammer and anvil and finished in a choice of either Rustix Waxed or Rustix Bright.
HL hinges are designed to be fitted to the opening face of doors with the hinge leaves being visible on both door and frame when the door is in the closed position. They are supplied as a mirror image pair to suit left hand or right hand openings.
The Beeswax finish is recommended for internal use only. However, it can be used externally in well covered areas if regularly maintained. The Rustix Bright finish is suitable for both internal and external applications in normal conditions. We DO NOT recommend either finish for coastal areas or other harsh environments.
Lubricate immediately after fitting and periodically thereafter - at least twice yearly. The Beeswax finish can be cleaned with an application of maintenance wax buffed over with a soft shoe brush. The Rustix Bright finish should be cleaned with an oil impregnated cloth to remove harmful deposits, especially when fitted externally.
Two hinges (one pair) complete with traditional slotted roundhead woodscrews in matching finish.
These hinges are normally held in stock for immediate despatch. If we are temporarily out of stock you should allow approximately 3 to 5 days for despatch.
