I brought a new house 4 years ago and some of the door hinges need replacing. I have never seen hinges like this before and I am not sure where I can get them from. I have contacted barratts homes and they have been useless as the joinery firm they used are no longer trading.

They need replacing so any ideas on what these are called or where I can get replacements from.

Thanks

Attached is photo

You could cut in and replace with some new slightly bigger butt hinges and fill any remaining hinge mortice that shows. Are they fire doors? I was wondering about that Allen head bolt there?

they look like self closing hinges - the name is on the tip of my tongue

scrub that its a locating tab/bolt

If you google adjustable 3D door hinge it comes up with quite a few designs but I haven't come across that one yet - yours may just need readjusting

Yer I believe it does have a patent number on them. I will find it out tonight and have a look, when I looked on google for the number I couldn't find much. The reason I need to replace them is because the middle allen key bolt has snapped on many of them. So really i could probably just get away with those, I have attached another photo showing the bolt which has snapped.

It looks like they make pre hung doors, add the hardware to the frame and slap the door in, one way to cut down on man hours I suppose

Of course I know nothing and am not an expert, but it looks to me like......

the philips head screws are in elongated slots, therefore the hinge is adjustable in/out in the vertical plane. To make this adjustment, you SLACKEN the four crossheads then use the hex head (with an allen key) to make the adjustment, it must be concentric and is marked with a clockwise/anticlockwise arrow symbol.

IF somebody tried to turn the hex head WITHOUT slackening the xheads, it would probably fail. But with care, the alignment could be adjusted without it.

OP, why do the hinges need replacing (because the hex head is broken) - if the door still opens/closes correctly, leave it alone.
