Continuous Geared Hinges provide a long lasting solution for high traffic and high traffic doors. Geared hinges extend the full length of the door and leaves no open gap for high security and evenly distributes the weight of the door along the entire opening. Both hinge leaves rotate on the same joint and absorb the lateral wear and tear of the door and frame. The weight of the door is supported by Self Lubricating bearings that last the life of the opening. Continuous Hinges do not require any door preparations and can be used in new construction or retrofit applications.
