The SwingHinge is a unique double action hinge that allows doors to swing 105° in both directions. This can be used either for double action doors such as corridor doors or can be used with a Swing Stop anti-barricade device for doors in high risk areas.
Ensure that both the frame and the door edge have a machined groove 10 x 4mm.
Line the bottom of each of the grooves with intumescent graphite (10 x 2mm).
Turn the door on its side and screw the hinge to the door making sure the hinge is fitting tightly to the do or edge and that it is fitting in to the groove. Fit the hinge so that it is flush with the top of the do or (the cap will protrude beyond this and give you the necessary gap at the head of the door in the frame).
Move the door towards the frame and locate the hinge in the groove of the frame. To do this the door will have to be at 90° to the frame.
Once the hinge is located move the door up in the frame so that the hinge cap is touching the frame head and fix the hinge in to the frame. This should be done by putting in fixings on alternate sides of the door, so that the hinge does not become dislodged from the location groove.
The SwingHinge allows doors to operate in both directions up to 105°. It is a continuous hinge that secures to the whole length of the door and provides additional finger-safe features.
The SwingHinge has been designed to be largely maintenance free by using self lubricating materials and materials that are resistant to corrosion and wear. Do not use lubricants on the hinge if the action has become stiffas this can affect the performance and usability of the product; contact Customer Services if in doubt. Periodic checks should be made to the fixings to ensure that these remain tight and that they have not been tampered with.
Cleaning of the SwingHinge should be made only with a damp cloth. All cleaning agents should be avoided.
