The Pemko Continuous Geared Hinge consists of two full-height, paired and inter-meshing geared leaves. Each geared leaf rotates evenly from top to bottom riding on wear resistant Delrin-Teflon bearings. Held together by a full-length channel cap the assembly easily supports heavy vertical loads uniformly across door and frame. Typical alignment problems such as door sag and binding are eliminated and only 1/2 lb. or less of operating force is required to operate most doors, which makes continuous geared hinges ideal for doors used by the physically challenged.
