Continuous Geared Door Hinges

What Are Continuous Geared Door Hinges?

Continuous geared door hinges comprise two symmetrical feared leaves that, unlike other hinges, run the entire length of the door. These leaves feature a cap covering the length of the hinge under which the gear teeth run, protecting them from exterior damage and allowing for smooth motion.

Because they run the full length of the door with multiple fasteners across the length, continuous geared door hinges disperse the door’s weight across the entire hinge, allowing for greater support with minimal sagging, warping or jamming.


Rockwell Security carries two different varieties of continuous geared door hinges that offer similar functions with different points of attachment:

  • Full surface: Full surface hinges are an ideal solution for renovation and retrofitting projects. Crews can fasten full surface hinges directly on exposed door or frame faces without significant infrastructural change, allowing the hinge and latch-side gaps to stay the same.
  • Full mortise: Because they are fastened in a way that conceals both hinge leaves, full mortise hinges are best for new door installations. This installation process covers the existing hinge preps and butt hinge cutouts.
