2. What Series do I need?
There are a number of factors that separate one series from another making them unique. From design, clearance, weight capacity, bearings, pins, number of knuckles, and more, all of these considerations are taken into account when designing a series.

4. Do I need an electrified hinge, and what is the centerline?
If you need an electrified hinge please reference the Industrial Hardware and Specialties Knowledge Base. There you will find all the information you need to properly select an electrified stainless steel continuous hinge. Deciding where the proper location of the centerline is located on your hinge is only necessary when purchasing an electrified hinge. How to choose the correct location of the centerline is also covered in this section of the Knowledge Base.
5. How to select handing?
A standard door used in common applications is said to be either right or left handed depending on which way the door swings open and where the hinges are positioned. If you are standing outside of a door and it swings open to the right away, then the door is right handed with right handed hinges. If the door swings open to the left away from you, the door is left handed with left handed hinges. If the door swings towards you to the right, then it is right handed reverse and if it swings open towards you to the left, it is left handed reverse. For a visual representation check out the hinge and door handing chart.
6.What is a hospital tip?
Hospital tips are used in medical or security areas to help protect against tampering and/or possible injury.This tip prevents hanging any objects on the tip of the hinge. Hager provides all hospital tipped hinges with an NRP set screw in the center of the knuckle, two cross pins, stainless steel hinge pin, and an oil port for lubrication purposes
