This is one our most FAQ’S. The main difference between the Micromaster MFH200 and Micromaster MFH300 is in the adjustment style. The MFH200 has a turn-buckle adjustment mechanism, whereas the MFH300 has a cap-screw adjustment mechanism.
The load capacity. The ANGUTEC® is for a panel up to 100kg/220lbs and the Micromaster is for a panel up to 400kg/880lbs if used in a standard application.
Please refer to the spec sheets for more information on load capacities.
You only need two hinges per door. However, we have many customers who choose to use a third hinge in the centre to ensure the door panel stays straight.
No. Due to the adjustment capabilities of the hinge there is some movement in the door mount that will allow the door to move about. This is not an issue when two or more hinges are used.
