Being Marine Grade Stainless steel, the Adjustable hinges are ideal for use on timbers such as Oak, Western Red Cedar, Iroko etc where non-ferrous ironmongery and fixings are recommended to avoid the tannic acid present with the aformentioned timbers, attacking the ironmongery causing corrision and also staining the timber with a blue/black stain.
Again recommended for use with Accoya which can have acetic acid present due to the modification process the timber goes through to become Accoya.
Live in a coastal area with bracing salty air? Again the Marine Grade stainless steel is ideal for these enviroments as it has excellent anti corrison properties.
Also known as adjustable hook & band, adjustable hook & pin hinges as well as adjustable hook and ride.
Adjustable stainless steel hinges like their cranked band and gudgeon counterparts are only available in three sizes of 18″/450mm, 24″/600mm & 36″/900mm.
The adjustable hinges once fitted, give as the name suggests some tolerance for adjusting each hinge – this can be quite useful for adjusting a gate to a level position during installation.
Hinge length to be used depends on the application, 1/3rd the width (or next hinge size up) of the gate or door for a normal domestic installation, with the hinge length being 1/2 the door or gate width (or nearest hinge size up) for industrial use of heavy duty domestic use.
All our stainless steel adjustable band and gudgeon hinges are heavy duty hinges.
All supplied with marine grade stainless steel screws & bolts.
Specification drawings for the stainless steel hinges are correct at time of writing and we accept no responsibility for the manufacturers changing the design. If in doubt please contact us before ordering.
