Distinguishing features of invisible door hinges
As the name suggests, hidden hinges are invisible, at first glance of course. They have a completely different design from standard surface or roller hinges. Installation of conce aled hinges requires special processing of both the frame and the leaf. But dedicated templates have been created for this purpose, which precisely mark the necessary machining. Hinges are installed in the so-called door jambs (the inside of the door frame and sash). This creates the effect of a uniform, flush surface. When the door is closed, the hinges are not visible either from the inside or from the outside. We can see them only after opening the door sash.
