CRL Cologne Hinges are similar to the popular Vienna Hinges, but with one change: They have radius corners and beveled edges to provide a sleek appearance. Cologne Hinges are the solution for wider, heavier doors that traditional hinges are not strong enough to support. Two strategically placed steel pins inside the hinge provide template options, and satisfy two schools of thought for mounting shower door hinges. For the safety of "mouse-ears" type cut-outs, the two steel pins should be left in place. This allows the Cologne Hinge to be used with its own CRL "mouse-ears" cut-out. On the other hand, to enable increased adjustability, the two pins can be removed. This allows the Cologne Hinge to fit its own CRL rectangular shaped, square cornered cut-out. In some cases, it will also fit competitive rectangular, square cornered cut-outs.
Cologne 180 Degree Glass-To-Glass Standard Hinge
- STANDARD REVERSIBLE PIVOT PIN: Each Cologne Hinge contains a Reversible Pivot Pin. One side of the Pin is marked at 90º. The opposite side of the Pin is marked 85º. Standard Cologne Hinges come with the 90º side activated. Pre-Set Models come with the Pin pre-set for 85º (5º tighter closure into shower interior). The Pin can be rotated (not flipped upside down) to activate the other side. CUSTOM PIVOT PIN: Custom Pivot Pins are available to accommodate "off-angle" installations. As an example, you may encounter a wall that will not meet your door at 90º. If the standard 5º Pivot Pin contained in the hinge does not assist in closing the door to the position desired, you may specify the angle needed for a Custom Pivot Pin (up to 45º).
