half wrap hinge information
The half wrap around hinge gives you extra strength by wrapping around and attaching to the back edge of the door and/or the face frame. Also, some aesthetic value is gained in that only the hinge pin shows when door is closed.








full wrap around hinge information


The full wrap around hinge is the sturdiest and strongest hinge because it wraps all the way around 3 sides of the face frame to which the hinge is attached. A full wrap is good for heavier or large doors that need extra strength to facilitate that weight. Full wrap around hinges are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
