Pivot hinges are hinges that incorporate a spring action inside the pivot knuckle. They are easy to spot due to the size of the knuckle, which is about double the size of a standard hinge because of the spring that is built inside.
Pivot hinges are used on doors that need to open both ways - the spring hinge operates in two directions. This style of hinge might be seen in restaurants, hospitals and schools and is ideal for double swing doors. The pivot hinges available at Love Handles comes in a choice of finishes and are simple to install using the fixing screws supplied.
