A classic "Penny End" Tee Hinge from our hand forged Rustix Collection and suitable for medium weight doors up to 36" (926mm) wide or heavier doors up to 32" (826mm). A popular choice for heavier room doors, passage doors and entrance doors. 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.
Tee hinges are designed to be fitted to the opening face of doors with both the horizontal strap and vertical frame plate being visible when the door is in the closed position. As a rule of thumb, light to medium weight doors (soft wood, pine) will require hinges approx one third to half the door width. For heavier doors (eg solid oak) select a hinge one half to two thirds the door width. For doors over 84" (2100mm) high we recommend a third hinge fitted centrally.
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.
One hinge as described complete with traditional slotted roundhead woodscrews in matching finish.
