M2/L6 Offset Pivot Hinge Configuration
M2/L2 Offset Pivot Hinge Configuration
The offset pivot hinge is an integral part of our legacy: it was sold by Ostrander and Eshleman, and manufactured, like the Harmon hinge, by the W.C. Vaughan Co. (Both companies have since merged with E.R. Butler & Co.)
In the specification of hinge configurations, offset pivots offer many advantages: a seemingly endless variety of mounting options, greater concealment, and an infinitely adjustable pivot point. Offset pivot hinges are ideal for concealed or jib doors, as well as built-in furniture and cabinetry. As with our other heavy-duty hinges, we have enhanced the traditional design to increase load capacity and reduce wear by adding full complement drawn cup needle roller bearings, thrust needle roller and cage assemblies, and thrust washers for all door and panel conditions.
Projection from pivot point to back of hinge is a primary consideration: it is variable and must be specified. E.R. Butler & Co.’s heavy-duty offset pivot hinges are made to order from 1 × 1⁄2 inch extruded material. Offset pivot hinges are available in all standard, custom plated and patinated finishes.
