Double Swing Door Hinge – Double swing area depends on the function of carrying a double swing door through its full space of motion and then acting to close the swing door using the internal springs under tension. These hinges can be adjusted for different closing tensions and are easy to install in a prioritized door or pre-hung. A standard installation provides a double swing hinge hollow-core doors and a minimum of two double cylinders hinges for solid wood frames.
Check that the spring tension is released in the double swing door hinge to be installed. These hinges are normally sold in a position of “neutral” tension or non-tension. The tension of the spring can be released by clamping the hinge to the edge of the door and using a punch or nail assembly in the holes of the adjusting ring. Move the ring until the pin of the hole can be removed to release the tension.
Place the double swing door hinge in the fitted hinge space of the door with the adjustment ring on top. If installed on a door with existing pre-hung hinges, remove the existing hinges by removing the door screws and the door jamb. Starting from the side of the door jamb, open the hinge blade and attach it to the jamb with the screws supplied with the hinge. Extend the hinge assembly and open the door to the point where the hinge leaf on the side door fits just in the hinge shroud.double swing door hinge
