How are they different?
Unlike conventional hinges, Single Swing Full Length Anti-Ligature SECURAHinges do not have a gap between the door and the frame making them ideal for anti-ligature purposes nor does it have a pin. It is not like a piano hinge which has 50% of each knuckle cut away, and depends on a thin wire to hold the leaves together.
How do they work?
These continuous geared hinges consist of two full height paired and geared leaves. Each geared leaf rotates evenly from top to bottom riding on Delrin-Teflon bearings. This retains the smooth clean lines of the door and frame, whilst easily supporting heavy vertical loads such as doors.

The Electronically Modified Hinge option is also available and is ideal for use in applications such as automatic disabled access and ensures all cabling to door or wall mounted electronics is concealed.
