English pattern Heavy Reversible Cup Hinge for general purpose use. Manufactured from heavy gauge mild steel and cast iron for more demanding applications and suitable for heavier doors/gates etc up to 47" (1200mm) wide. This is the classic hinge design seen on timber garage doors since the early part of the 20th century.
Reversible hinges are designed to be fitted to the opening face of doors with both the horizontal strap and frame cups 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.
This hinge requires the door to be flush with the frame on the opening face for correct fixing. You should also ensure that your frame post is wide enough to accept the cups.
Both the Black and Galvanised finish are suitable for general external use in normal conditions if properly maintaned. We DO NOT recommend either finish for coastal areas or other harsh environments.
Lubricate immediately after fitting and periodically thereafter - at least twice yearly. Clean with an oil impregnated cloth to remove harmful deposits.
Two strap hinges (one pair) complete with all fixing screws, bolts in matching finish.
These hinges are normally available from stock. If we are temporarily out of stock you should allow 3 - 5 working days for despatch.
