Continuous hinges are designed to match the height of the door. The structural rigidity of continuous hinges allows for an even distribution of weight on the hinge and, therefore, the capacity to install heavier doors.
Mounted door closers are the most popular door closers in today’s door market. They are generally mounted on the surface of the door or door frame and are available in four distinct variations: Track Arm, Regular Arm, Parallel Arm, and Top Jamb Mounted.
Hinges primarily become worn as a result of daily wear-and-tear and weather-related abrasion.
These factors, in addition to the weight of the door, most commonly damage the bottom hinge more so than the overlying hinges. If our technicians find that your hinges are malfunctioning, they will replace them with a heavy-duty continuous hinge for unmatched structural support.
Can door closers be repaired?
How does a hydraulic door closer work?
As the door is opened, a powerful spring on the inside of the closer is compressed or tightened. When the door is released, this spring pulls the door shut. To keep it from slamming shut, a cushioning or shock absorbing medium is used. This may be either air (in pneumatic closers) or fluid (in hydraulic closers).
What does continuous hinge mean
Continuous hinges are made to match the full height of the door. They can carry heavier doors (commercial doors, storefront doors), and last a lot longer than standard hinges or butt hinges. Because continuous hinges run the full height of the door, the weight of the door is distributed along the full height of the frame which reduces stress on the hinge.
