Single action spring hinge:

A spring hinge has a spring in its “knuckle”, which is larger than usual. The spring is linked to one flap at the top and the other flap at the bottom. Therefore, when the door opens, the spring is wound up, as the two flaps rotate apart.

When the door is released, the spring re-asserts itself, pushing the two hinge flaps back together, and that in turn rotates the door back into the frame.


Facts about single action spring hinges:

●Spring hinges will usually open to 180° as long as the frame detail doesn’t obstruct this.

●There are different sizes for different door widths, thicknesses and weights. All three factors can influence the final choice. Some are designed specially for domestic doors.

●To increase or decrease the speed of door closing, a capstan at the head of the barrel is rotated with a Tommy bar or Allen key supplied. After cranking the capstan round, a peg or grub screw is inserted to stop the spring unwinding again.
