Hook and Band Hinges
Hook and Band Hinges (or Hook and Ride Hinges) are a traditional method of hanging heavier ledged doors or gates and are designed so that both the horizontal strap and vertical plate are fully visible on both the opening face of the door and the frame. Manufactured in Britain from 100% Cast Malleable Iron using traditional methods of production our Hook & Band Hinges are an excellent choice for ledged and braced doors and we offer a wide range of designs and sizes suitable for both internal and external doors. Finished in Antique Black Iron these Hook & Band Hinges will add an authentic Old English rustic charm to doors around the home. As a rule of thumb, you should select a Hook and Band Hinge between one third and half the door width for light weight doors and gates (softwood) or from half to two thirds the door width for heavier doors and gates (oak etc).
