Architectural Detail: Concealed Hinges

April 25, 2013

Consider the door hinge. Probably not the most aesthetically pleasing feature in the home. But wait–there’s hope.

Tectus 3D Concealed Hinges from German-based Simonswerk, a producer of premium hinge systems for over 120 years, combine high performance with sleek design. Engineered to handle heavy doors, the Tectus 3D Concealed Hinges combine quality materials and precision performance and maintenance-free slide bearings and three directions of adjustability (keeping flush doors flush).
