What is a Double Action Spring Hinge and what is it used for?

Other names for double action spring hinges are as follows:

  • Café Door Hinges
  • Saloon Door Hinges
  • Double Swing Hinges
  • Double Action Hinges

Double action spring hinges allow a door to open 180 degrees in either direction.  The spring action returns door to center closed position.  These hinges are great for any door you want to walk through in both directions and have the door come back to center automatically.  Restaurants, bars, and even many homes install these hinges for the closing application in both directions.

Our recommendation for installation is placing 2 hinges up near the top of the door and one near the bottom.  The Double Action Installation Instructions highlight the recommended placement of these. 

Double Action Hinges can also provide an old rustic type look to any door.  A Matte Black or Oil Rubbed Bronze Finish hinge combined with additional rustic hardware from a company like Wild West Hardware can give any door a “Wow” factor.

In addition to the standard Double Action Spring Hinges, there is also a hinge known as a Floor Mounted Double Acting Hinge.  These provide the same type of functionality with the actual hinge mounted on the floor out of plain view.
