How to pick a concealed hinge:

  1. You need an accurate door weight. Start here with our door weight calculator.
  2. Flush door or clad door? The door weight calculator will let you filter out the correct hinge.
  3. Fire rating? The chart below will give you options.
  4. Coastal Environment? Think stainless steel. We have options.
  5. Coastal Environment Again? Stainless steel is expensive. We have other finish options that provide corrosion resistance.
  6. Brand. Use this chart to compare. But we offer only the best concealed hinges on our site. Call us and we can discuss large project discounts, custom color options for each of the brands, and other aspects that can help you maximize the best performance for your project budget.
  7. Millwork Shop? Think BaSys. Many of their hinges use the same profile for different weight capacities. This means fewer milling templates and setup configurations.
  8. The minimalist architect? Think BaSys as they have magnetic coverplates which means NO VISIBLE SCREWS! Read this for a quick introduction to BaSys PIVOTA 3-D adjustable concealedhinges.
