Bommer spring hinges are a type of door hinge manufactured by Bommer Industries. Bommer is a well-known brand that produces a wide range of high-quality hinges for various applications. Bommer spring hinges are specifically designed to provide automatic door closing functionality through the use of built-in springs.

Key Features & Characteristics of Bommer Spring Hinges:

  2. Single or double action: Bommer offers both single action and double action spring hinges. Single action hinges allow the door to close in one direction, while double action hinges enable the door to swing open and close in both directions.
  3. Material and finish options: Bommer spring hinges are often made from durable materials such as steel or stainless steel, ensuring strength and longevity. They may be available in different finishes, including satin nickel, polished chrome, brass, or other options, allowing you to choose the one that matches your door or decor.
  4. Size and weight capacity: Bommer spring hinges come in various sizes and weight capacities to accommodate different door sizes and weights. Selecting the appropriate hinge size and weight rating is important to ensure proper functioning and longevity.
  5. Versatility: Bommer spring hinges are suitable for a wide range of applications, including residential, commercial, and industrial settings. They can be used on interior or exterior doors, fire-rated doors, self-closing gates, and other applications where automatic door closing is desired.

When installing Bommer spring hinges, following the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for proper installation is crucial. This ensures optimal performance and safety.
