Unidentified door hinge - £5 paypal reward!

Post by geremof » Sun Mar 17, 2019 4:37 pm

Hi all. Hope you can help.
I can not find for the life of me any info on this type of door hinge. Image below.
The frame hinge clips into the door hinge but the door part has broken.

If anyone can help me find a replacement I'll paypal you £5 for a beer/coffee.

Many thanks

Try looking at these, not sure if it's right, but it's a start.

Is there a bit broken off, what does a whole one look like? It looks like some form of European demountable hinge. To be frank it will be hard to source a replacement as that looks pretty old. It would not be too hard to cut in a similar but not identical hinge though.

Yes, the door part has broken; there was a hoover handle in between the door and frame when it closed and snapped.
House is approx 30 years old and these are on every single door frame.
Here's a picture of a whole one, the original shows the two parts that snap together.
I've also zoomed in on a mark on the hinge, is this a logo anyone recognises?

If your house is one of several built by one of the larger house-builders, the hinges could be peculiar to those builders. They're obviously designed to be assembled by non-carpenters, which points towards one of the larger corporations.

That's the door frame on the left, and the door itself on the right, correct? I'm getting close, it's Swedish, still looking for a supplier though.

Only took a couple of hours...... :lol:

I wasn't able to identify the logo on the frame part which I think is a G, but the same hinge assembly is made by Assa Abloy Sweden, perhaps they bought out the original manufacturer. According to wiki, they own 150 brands including Yale & Chubb.

You'd better see how much they want for postage first!

After weeks of trying to find a Swedish resident to buy these for me I finally have them! Turns out you need the equivalent of a national insurance number to purchase from a lot of Swedish sites.

Anyways, the fittings are in the, the door is fixed and arco you're an internet ninja!
Can you send me a PM with your PayPal address? I owe you that beer!
