Securefold introduces two new hinge options

The two new additions will join the standard and the security enhanced Ultra hinge in four finishes (Black, Titanium Gold, Brushed Satin and Polished Stainless Steel) to give our customers and yours a greater choice when choosing hardware for their project.

A traditional rustic square morticed hinge is now available, ideal when a more traditional look and finish is required. The solid square appearance achieves the look of a timely installation as in the past and historically it would have required precision routing by hand.
