GU door hinges for project, main and secondary entrance doors
Door hinges (pivots, hinges) connect the door to the door frame or frame and facilitate the swing motion of the door.
Since the 1950s drill-in hinges have become more and more established and are used instead of hinges with mortise, route-in or screw-on plates. Replacing the former mortise-wing plate with round positioning pins for drilling in was a ground-breaking development as the positioning pins can be industrially fabricated and allow the door to be installed in a much more rational cost-effective manner.
Door hinges normally consist of three elements: the lower hinge part which is fastened to the door frame or frame, the top hinge part which is fastened to the door leaf and the pin which represents the rotation axis.
