    Hinge Preparations – Double Acting Spring Hinge

    Graphic for Double Acting Tab'

    Double Acting Hinges are attached to a cased opening jamb using standard machine screws.

    In this installation, a TA-25 is jobsite applied to the center of the frame on the back side prior to installation on the wall. Once the frame is installed, the hinge screw holes are located and then drilled and tapped for machine screw threads. The door is mounted to the hinge flange and tested for proper operation. The door must be sized appropriately or the strike stile must have a radius to provide necessary clearance. Once the door is operating as required, the hinge springs are tightened using a tension bar to provide the necessary closing force.

    Hinge Preparations – Why they are so strong

     

    TIMELY HINGE PREPARATION
    • Extruded Screw holes
    • Rolled threads instead of traditional tapping
    • 0.224" Depth of thread capture
    • No welds to fail – 100 % performance guarantee over the life of the building
    • Embossed instead of cutting out metal – frame material is sandwiched between the hinge and reinforcement bracket for maximum strength

     

    HOLLOW METAL HINGE PREPARATION
    • Screw holes drilled in 10 ga. (0.134") steel reinforcement plate
    • Threads tapped with traditional tapping machinery
    • 0.134" Depth of thread capture (same as thickness of reinforcement)
    • 6 spot welds are the only connection between the reinforcement plate and frame
    • Failure of welds cause total failure of opening
