English pattern Cranked Hook and Band Strap Hinge manufactured from heavy gauge marine grade 316 stainless steel and suitable for heavier doors/gates etc up to 47" (1200mm) wide. Recommended for use in areas subject to adverse conditions such as coastal areas and swimming pools.
Hook & band 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.
This is a "cranked" hook & band hinge that requires the door to be flush with the frame for correct fixing. You should also ensure that your frame post is wide enough to accept the fixing plate.
Lubricate immediately after fitting and periodically thereafter - at least twice yearly. An occasional clean with stainless steel cleaner will help preserve the finish when fitted externally.
Two 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.
