With a continuous hinge, typical alignment problems (such as door sag and binding) are eliminated. The continuous hinge distributes load stress uniformly along the full length of the door and frame.
The gear design of the continuous hinge ensures symmetrical operation of each leaf and acts as reinforcement for both door and frame.
A high degree of security can be achieved for exterior openings or restricted spaces by using a continuous hinge. With the geared construction and the full-length channel cap, the common gap between the door and frame is sealed, which provides security against prying. In addition, the closing of this gap protects against pinching fingers in doors in public areas, particularly those where children are present.
Sight proof design of the continuous hinge provides privacy for lavatories, executive offices, or file rooms.
