Strength: The installed hinge is firmly anchored in a deep, full mortise with screws to support the door and provide a rigid and secure installation.

Superior Construction: Concealed hinges are designed to ensure reliable operation for years. The standard hinges are made of high-strength steel and zinc alloy.

Smooth Operation: All hinges have been designed and developed to give smooth performance and reduce friction.
