Issue of wide door sagging
Concealed hinges are essential for opening and closing furniture doors. However, with wide doors, the door will often slope downward, or “sag,” unless many hinges are used. This article will explain how this problem was addressed.
What causes the doors to sag in the first place?
The following are some of the reasons why a door may sag:
— The door is too heavy
— The door is too wide
— The interval between the hinges is too short
— Too few hinges are used
The common issue with all of these problems is that the hinges cannot support the weight of the door.

Support 800 mm wide doors with just two hinges!
A luxury hotel in Korea used the J95 concealed hinge for the bathroom sink plumbing maintenance door. Due to the 800 mm width of the door, it was necessary to use at least three conventional hinges, but with the J95, only two were needed. Since only two J95 hinges are required, it creates a cleaner and more visually appealing appearance. Additionally, since the same type of maintenance door was needed throughout the hotel, using only two hinges greatly decreased the overall installation time.
