Frame Mounting Options

All Manfred Frank Hinges are available with a range of different frame mount sizes.  The main difference between frame mounts is the spacing or distance between the mounting hole centres. Typically, the bigger the distance between hole centres the higher the load bearing capacity. A wider hole spacing produces a better load transfer and reduces the forces placed on the actual screw/bolt mountings locations. When hinges are mounted into glass frames it is a requirement to comply with international standards of minimum distances between glass holes of a specified hole diameter. Manfred Frank Hinges and their frame mounts are designed to fully comply with international glass processing regulations and standards.

All the different size frame mounts are suitable for overlay, inset and curtain wall installations. All frame mounts are installed in a fixed position. The adjustment mechanisms are incorporated within the hinge  itself and are not affected by even the largest panels. This patented feature effectively eliminates any possibility of slippage or creep over time, guaranteeing permanent perfect alignment of your panels. **Pics showing Backing Plate, B2B and bolted installs. As pictured above, Manfred Frank offer a range of frame mount accessories such as clamping plates, backing plates, washers and bushes. Using a frame backing plate provides added strength for the frame mount installed in panels. When mounting steel components to glass  a plastic washer should always be used to separate both materials. All clamping and backing plates are made from CD-4MCu Duplex Stainless Steel.

Frame Kits

Accessories & frame mounting kits are available for all installations. Certain installations can require the offset frame mounting of hinges. A range of different spacers are available for offset mounting such as inset door panel installations. Manfred Frank Hinges can be  mounted completely frame less and directly to glass panels of different thicknesses with our special glass frame mounting kits & accessories. Other frame installation options such as back-to-back mounted hinges and surface flush countersunk frame mounting can be accommodated with specific frame mounting kits. The Hinge Configurator will help you choose the best frame mount option for your particular application/installation.
