Surface Mounted Hinges
A surface mounted hinge is installed on the surface of a door or frame, rather than being mortised or recessed into the material. Surface mounted hinges are typically attached to the face of the door or frame with screws, making them easy to install and remove.
One of the main advantages of surface mounted hinges is their ease of installation. Unlike mortised hinges, which require precise cuts and installation techniques, surface mounted hinges can be easily installed with basic tools and hardware. This makes them a popular choice for DIY projects and home repairs, as well as for commercial and industrial applications where quick and easy installation is important.
Surface mounted hinges are commonly used in a variety of applications, including doors, cabinets, access panels, and gates. They can be used in both interior and exterior applications, and are available in different styles, such as butt hinges, continuous hinges, and strap hinges, to suit different needs and preferences.
