UPVC hinge adjustment a guide

UPVC-LOCKSMITH-GLASGOWAdjusting your UPVC hinges on your door is not that hard. There is only a few adjustments you can do.

With an allen key you can adjust the door either left or right as shown.

Or raise the door. Sometimes this does not raise the door but pulls the door tighter into the frame. Be carefull though as over tightening could lead to hinge fracture.

The raising of the door isn't really a good option unless of course the door has been poorly fitted and other options such as toe and healing are not available.

If your door is fitted with butt type hinges in a lot of cases these types of hinges are not adjustable. Some do have a fine adjustment from 0 to 15 degrees.
