'Invisible' Hinges From FDB Panel Fittings For Prestige & Office Doors
In the world of prestige interiors and offices, hinges can be either featured or hidden and it is this latter aspect which is addressed by the new range of “invisible” hinges from FDB Panel Fittings. These allow the door to be opened a full 180° whilst remaining very strong and unseen when closed. This is achieved by virtue of morticing the mechanism of a hinge into the door and frame and having precision engineered involuted arms or members.The
For many designers the 190 variant would be massive overkill for interior doors – which explains the availability of its smaller relation the HES3D-120 which looks to all intents and purposes like the HES3D-190 but is about half the size. Not only does it retain its big brothers good looks but also all of its functionality. Allen keyed screws allow the hinge to be adjusted up, down, left, right, in or out. It is designed for doors up to 30kgs when two hinges are used and predictably the solidity of the mechanism is remarkable. The load of the door is distributed between seven links which allow the arms to move sweet and free and completely without play.
In use it has particular advantages. The body of the hinge is not as deep as other hinges in this class which may have positive ramifications for the type and design of door used.
Like its bigger brothers, installation is a one man job. The two halves of the hinge are installed on door and frame and then simply brought together on a locating pin to drop into a slot with gravity. A simple enhancement like this can really reduce the hassle on a multi-door installation. The HES3D-120 comes in either a silver or champagne gold finish at a very competitive price.
