Just a word about the hinge tip options available:

  • The standard in the industry is the Flat Button Tip for 5-knuckle hinges.

  • The flush/concealed tip is standard on 3-knuckle. If button tip is required, specify Exposed Tip (ET).

  • Hospital Tips (HT) are used primarily for security areas in hospitals and in prisons. This tip prevents hanging any objects on the tip of the hinge. Hager provides all hospital tipped hinges with an NRP set screw in the center of the knuckle, two cross pins, stainless steel hinge pin, and an oil port for lubrication purposes. If the hinge is ball bearing, the components used for the bearing are made of stainless steel.

  • Decorative tips such as Acorn, Ball, Steeple, and Urn are used in decorative areas of offices and residences.

  • Fast Riveted Pins (FRP) are spun on both ends, making the pin permanent.
