Benefits of Double Action Spring Door Hinges

Double-acting hinges offer several functional advantages:

  • Doorways with saloon door hinges are quicker to pass through, as there is no time spent manipulating a handle or manually returning the door to its closed position. This minimizes bottlenecking in high-volume areas and reduces overall travel time.
  • Saloon-style doors are less of a perceptual barrier, while not being completely open as with a doorless passageway. Using double swing hinges on a door allows related interior spaces to be set apart by a door for practical reasons but still conceptually connected in people’s minds.
  • Doors with double-acting hinges are ideal for situations where a door is required but accessibility is still paramount. Double swing doors require much less manual operation than a door with a handle, and technically do not require free hands at all. This makes them well suited for customers or staff who are carrying loads, customers, or patients who have disabilities, etc.
