Concealed hinges in AISI 304 are primarily used for security reasons but also for aesthetics. They find application on enclosure and cabinet doors for industrial use or for office/domestic kitchens or bathrooms.
Internally mounting or concealment behind door returns ensures that the hinge is protected from attempts to force removal of hinge pins or mounting screws. In many cases appropriate hinge selection enables door demounting once the door has been opened – with easy post operation refitting.
