Scroll Down for more detailed information

The Center Hung Pivot Hinge is mortised into the center of the door. Establishing a concealed pivot point which allows the door to open within the plain of the door. The door will pivot based on the location of the set pivot point installed. It is critical to remember that the hinge side of the door and/or jamb must have some type of bevel/radius prep in order for the hinge to swing clear of obstruction. See the illustration below marked "P-2" to see a few examples.

Consult with you woodworker, door manufacturer carpenter etc. for other techniques and methods they may use to allow proper spacing for the Center Hung Pivot Hinge to swing clear. We can help make some recommendation of where your pivot point should be but you should be working with a woodworking pro to ensure you achieve the look desired. The Center Hung Pivot Hinge provides an amazing unique look when thought out and prepared properly in advance. This product is available in all RAJACK Finishes.

 

Very often we are asked to explain the difference between the Center Hung Pivot Hinge and the Offset Pivot Hinge. A lot of folks will say they want the Center Hung Pivot Hinge because of the fact that it is concealed without really understanding how this affects the swing of the door and the prep work involved. As explained above the CH Pivot Hinge opens within the plain of the door while the Offset Pivot Hinge throws the door outside of the plain. Scroll down to the illustration marked "P-1" to help understand how both types of hinges swing a door.

Important Note: Any door approaching 8' can have a tendency to bow depending on materials used to manufacture door, usage of door and environment. It is important to consult with your door manufacturer/woodworker about bowing and how your door is constructed. Some door manufacturers will not warranty your door if they require an intermediate hinge and you choose not to use one. In order for the RAJACK Center Hung Pivot to operate properly your door must be free from any bow traits.
