A typical two or three butt hinge system may cause premature doorway failure in busy entrance ways. Most of any door's weight and stresses are put on its top hinge. With excessive use the top hinge may experience signs of early wear. Once the top hinge fails, the door sags and the entrance way quickly becomes a problem.
The Markar continuous hinge dissipates weight and stresses along the full length of the door and frame supporting the door’s full length up to 10 feet.
Because Markar continuous hinges are tested for over a million cycles, trouble-free door operation is guaranted.
Markar hinges are available in aluminum, stainless steel and carbon steel, with models designed to meet any budget, application or security requirement.
