Recommended for standard weight, medium frequency doors in place of door closers in apartments, hotels, motels, office buildings, etc.
McKinney spring hinges and spring pivots are designed to close doors and work in situations where a door closing mechanism is either impractical or unsightly. McKinney has a dozen options to close a door by itself.
Generally, two hinges or pivots must be spring loaded to close a door. Some spring pivots allow the door to be opened in either direction and lock the door in place when it is opened 90 degrees.
McKinney spring hinges also include the Double Acting Clamp Flange Spring Hinge for trucking doorways. Three hinges are recommended for heavy doors, with the third hinge mounted near the top for better support.
And if you just need to put a spring on the door, McKinney has a Full Surface Double Acting Door Spring that will mount on the surface of the door and the frame. It is adjustable but requires no special tools.
