An English pattern 120 strong steel T (Tee) Strap Hinge for general purpose use. Manufactured from heavy gauge mild steel for more demanding applications, this 12" (300mm) version is suitable for medium weight doors up to 24" (610mm) wide and is a popular choice for shed doors and full height gates etc.
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 Dull Black finish is suitable for internal use but can be used externally if properly maintained. For general external use we recommend the Galvanised finish. 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, especially when fitted externally.
Two hinges (1 pair) as described 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.
