Hinges are used to hang an entranceway securely and ensure it opens and closes smoothly with a swift motion. Hardwearing and suitable for a variety of light-to-heavy jobs in and around the home or in commercial settings, hinges are made in several sizes, strengths and styles to fulfil a variety of closing functions and stand the test of time. Some designs are CE marked to confirm they meet European Standards in terms of performance and safety, while sturdy materials and protective coatings are used for styles intended for outside use. Hinges are also quick and easy to fit, resulting in a fast turnaround on installation time. A choice of colours and finishes allows households to pick a hinge that will complement the interior design of a room.
