How should I measure my hinges?
A: First you need to establish the hanging type, do you require a top or side hung hinge?
B: Then you need to take your first measurement - this is the actual length of the hinge. You will need to measure the part that fixes to the window frame (not sash), please see the diagram below showing where the hinge length measurements are taken from. Hinges come in the following sizes: 8 , 10, 12, 16, 20 or 24 inches long.
C: The second measurement is that of the hinge width i.e. the width of the metal part that fixes to the outer frame. (Almost all window hinges will measure 18mm in width, but with windows that are very old the measurement could be 14mm and if this is the case this hinge will not unfortunately, fit. We do however, offer an alternative hinge which may meet your requirements.)
D: The final measurement that you need is the Stack Height, this measurement is the height of the hinge when closed. Stack heights come in two sizes 13mm or 17mm, so even if you are unsure you can usually calculate which is correct because of the 4mm difference.
