These simplistic yet incredibly functional and hard-wearing hinges follow the idea of a standard lift-off hinge like you see on gates, but with the strength added by being bolted deep into the wall or timber frame.
So confident are the manufacturers, that they have rated these at being capable of holding 100Kg per pair!
Made of steel and then galvanised for corrosion resistance, these hinges are functional, tidy, and look great too! Not only that but they come certified of compliance with regulation EN 1935:2002.

Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. We're putting these short little videos together to be able to give you our customers the opportunity to see the products a little bit more in detail, and perhaps give you a little bit more information that maybe the image and the descriptive text may not be able to give you.
Today I'm going to talk to you about the set of lift-off hinges that we have on our website. You probably find these more common in our European countries like Spain, Italy, France, etc. They're used quite extensively more so over there than they are used in this country. However, they are starting to become quite popular. This particular type of hinge here, manufacturers claim can hold up to 100 kilos, as a suggestion you need a few of those together to be able to hold a door about that weight.
The idea is quite simple. You would screw this into the door or slide in to the wall, then you would sit the door on to the top and all the weight would be carried on that there. Let me give you some quick little measurements to give you some sort of indications as to what size you'd be looking at. The length of that bolt there, right from its edge to its end, there's 45 millimetres. The one here is slightly longer there at 50 millimetres, and as you can see it's got a tapered edge.
What you would effectively do is you would drill a slightly underside hole and the idea is then is you would screw that into it as tight as you can. You could put an adjustable expander on that and really get that in as tight as you possibly can, similar with the one going into the frame. The overall diameter of that as well, I'll the Vernier case to give you an idea, you're talking about 16 millimetres. The overall size of the actual unit there is, 54, say, 55 millimetres there, the overall size of this particular one.
It's a galvanized finish as you can see there and it's available on our website. If you need a bit more information on this product or any of the products that we have on our website, by all means, pop us over an email or use the live chat that we have. It's totally free. You could speak to me or any of the guys in the sales team or by all means, just simply give us a call. Love to hear from you and we'd love to see you as a customer. From me Darrel, and all of us here at the team, take care. We'll catch up with you real soon. Bye-bye.
