Micromaster-Applications

Super-Sized Panels

A single pair of Micromaster hinges is capable of an unprecedented load-bearing capacity of 400kg. Manfred Frank Patented Load Transfer Technology compensates for the leverage and download forces of door panels without placing any strain on the secondary screw fixings. This ingenious feature is standard for all MFH door-mounting options. Ultra-wide and ultra-thick panels can be installed safely and efficiently. A single person can adjust panels of any size with a standard Allen key and spanner within minutes. Permanent perfect panel alignment is guaranteed with no slippage or creep possible.

The Range

Micromaster-RangeThe Micromaster Series includes two types of hinge models and their interchangeable frame and panel mountings. Both models perform to the same standard, however they differ in their adjustment mechanism.

MFH 200 hinges feature turnbuckle linkages and are adjusted with a spanner for sideways and compression alignment. A standard Allen key is used to adjust height.

MFH 300 hinges incorporate socket head cap screw linkages and require an Allen key to adjust for sideways, compression and height alignment. MFH 300 hinges can be adjusted from outside their housing area and are perfectly suited for confined spaces with limited access. In summary, the MFH 200 is the standard Micromaster Series hinge model, with the MFH 300 specific to confined spaces. For more information see Adjustment.
