Hinge Performance

  • The Ligature Resistant Concealed Geared Continuous Hinge has been tested in accordance with ANSI 250.4- 1994 test procedure and acceptance criteria for physical endurance for steel doors and hardware and has surpassed 25,000,000 cycles during testing by an independent laboratory. On a door cycling 400,000 times per year, a hinge will be performing for over 62 years.
  • Ligature Resistant Concealed Geared Continuous Hinges are built to handle abuse from high-traffic applications. They are applied to the surface on the edge of the frame and door. No machining or reinforcement is required.
  • On conventional hinges, opening and “kick- back” energy concentrate on a few inches of fastened reinforcing plate — with the top hinge handling 100% of the force. Pinless hinges bond the door and frame into an integrated, sag-free unit. “Kick-back” energy dissipates along the entire length of the door and frame. (Compare this to a conventional hinge’s 4-1/2” to 5” at the top of the door and frame).
  • The revolutionary Ligature Resistant Concealed Geared Continuous Hinge puts an end to costly and irritating hinge failure problems, the most common cause of entrance failure.
  • Ligature Resistant Concealed Geared Continuous Hinges eliminate the gap between the door and frame, providing a weatherproof, rust-proof, tamper- proof barrier. When the door is closed, there are no accessible screws, bolts or pins.
  • Ligature Resistant Concealed Geared Continuous Hinges are listed and tested by Underwriters Laboratories to meet the Positive and Negative pressure requirements of UL10B and UL10C, and are in accordance with UBC 7.2 (1997). Ligature Resistant Concealed Geared Continuous Hinges are for use on swinging single fire doors (max. door opening of 4’x10’) or pairs of fire doors (max. door opening of 8’x10’), including double egress, installed in masonry or drywall. Ligature Resistant Concealed Geared Continuous Hinges are rated for up to 1-1/2 hours for wood composite and wood core type fire doors.

Lifetime Lubrication: Eliminates the need for periodic maintenance. Quiet performance. Fight gear cap wear.

Anodized After Machining: Delivers superior wear, durability and life. Inhibits corrosion.

Meet LEED Requirements: Made from recycled aluminum. Reduces environmental impact and qualifies for LEED points.

Fire Rating
90 minute UL certification when used in a like rated opening and with a like rated door, the hinge can be modified for a 3 hour rating if needed.

    The team at Behavioral Safety Products has been a terrific partner in our efforts to update our older behavioral health inpatient units. Many of the units have dated spaces that have odd fixtures and required retrofitting to be installed. They have helped us on multiple projects and even worked with their distributor to speed up delivery time in order for us to meet internal deadlines. BSP has been a pleasure to work with and a great resource for our facilities team.
