Concealed Hinge for 1 3/8 thick door3/22
We are trying to produce a hidden door within wainscot paneling. The staves for the paneling are 3/8 thick. The door is 1 3/8 thick solid core. Everything has a square edge shaker profile with slight ease.
Can this be done with a european style concealed hinge?
Although I am not 100% clear on all of the details here, I am confident that the Salice F Series hinge will do the job for you. The F series is designed for door thickness to 1-1/2". It opens to 94 degrees and requires a 40mm hinge cup bore.
Here are a few examples of the capabilities. Hope this helps.
Dennis, take a closer look at the plan detail. He's showing a 1 3/8" thick door recessed completely in the frame. I'm not so sure the F series will throw the door out of the way of the frame will it?
I'm also not so sure that the angled part will clear.
Is this a door into another room or a cabinet? Swinging into or out of the room?
If it swings out of the room we leave the "staves" on the wall and swing the door (panel) only. The door swings into the "staves" as a stop. This can be accomplished with a standard jamb ripped the same thickness as the door with standard hinges. Just install it flush to the back plane of your wainscoting. For situations with poor jamb structure you can always go with a Rixon pivot hinge.
If this is swinging into the room, a Euro may be the best option. Wondering if the door could be mortised/notched to reduce the thickness where the cup mounts and buy some extra opening clearance/throw?
