Hinge Body: Hinge leaf is manufactured of solid forged brass with a lost wax cast knuckle.
Ball Bearings: Each hinge is equipped with one precision machined anti-friction ball bearing assembly. The two races are machined from 300 series Stainless Steel. The balls are Stainless Steel as well. The bearing shell is machined from brass of the same alloy as the hinge body to ensure an accurate color match. The construction results in an extremely durable, long life ball bearing which is able to withstand years of hard use and corrosive environments. This bearing greatly increases both the lateral and vertical load bearing capability of the hinge and therefore increases hinge life. This bearing is fully concealed.

Pins: Pins are machined from 300 series Stainless Steel for high durability and resistance to rust. They are permanently installed in one half of the hinge. The exposed end is rounded to facilitate re-assembly.
