What Tee Hinge Solution Do You Need?
You’re probably familiar with Tee hinges, or Cross Garnet hinges as they are sometimes known, as they are quite a common hinge. They can be found on lightweight gates, garage doors, shed doors, truck doors and even internal, cottage style, ledged and braced doors.
The Tee hinge comprises a rectangular-shaped knuckle which fits to the gate post (or door frame) and has a tapered strap which fits to the gate (or door).
These are available in several gauges of light, medium and heavy duty and a couple of different finishes: zinc plated, black powder coated and stainless steel.
Being a surface mounted hinge, it’s fairly easy to fit. Once you’ve got your gate or door in position, just fire the screws into place and you are done!
What size Tee hinges do I need?
As even the strongest Tee hinge is no match for the rest of the hinges mentioned below, you need to be looking at a hinge length of half the width of the door/gate you are hanging. So, on say, a gate width of 900mm, then you’ll need at least a 450mm hinge.
For any gate or door over 2100mm (approx 7ft), then a third hinge should be added; though to be honest, if you’re hanging any external gate or door this tall then you should be really looking at a stronger hinge.
