Black T hinge Tee hinge
Black T hinge/ Tee hinge. A pair of our rustic tee hinges, or T hinges. These are hand-made in wrought iron and with classic fleur de lys heads. These traditional black hinges are available in a range of sizes. We stock other door furniture to match. This particular pair is 24 inches in length and so suited to a substantial door. We recommend the hinge length should cover half to two-thirds of the door width. Fixing screws are provided and the hinge base plates come with pre- drilled holes.
The rectangular hinge leaf measures 16 cm by 3.2 cm and the decorative hinge leaf is 57 cm long. The head of the fleur de lys measures 9 cm wide.
Our wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a black oil coating. All our hand forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.The colouring will be from black to rust.
As these hinges are surface mount they are fairly easy to fit. You will need to fit them where the rails of the door are positioned. As these are large hinges they are designed for heavy doors. If your door is tall and very heavy we would recommend fitting three hinges per door. This will also stop the door from warping.
These hinges may be fitted internally or externally. One point to mention these hinges are not suitable for externally opening house doors. The reason for this is that the hinges could be unscrewed
thus gaining entry to your home.
If you are fitting these hinges externally maybe on a gate or shed. They will after a period of time show surface rust. You can leave them for a truly natural look. You may prefer to paint them .
