Spring-loaded hinges with rare sizes, like 5-inch or 6-inch, get worn out fast for their simple design (only coil spring inside) or the overwhelming door weights (mostly over 200 pounds). After constant rotation on the heavy door or frequent spring hinge adjustment, the metal spring and tension pin soon lose their elasticity and resilience. Door slamming is destined to happen, as there’s no viable internal speed control unit. The 6-inch door hinges solve these issues by combining fluid motion, space-saving, and elegance.

Available 6 Inch Spring Hinge Finishes per BHMA Standard

6-inch closer hinges are scarce, and so are their finishes. Finishes contribute to both the requirements of aesthetics and durability. Some hinges use regular paintings or simply raw metal as the standard finishes. With an adjustable hinge, you can choose a wide range of colors from Stainless Satin-Brushed(US32D/630), Black(US19/631), Oil Rubbed Bronze(US10B/613), Satin Brass(US4/633), or any color you prefer for customized design.
