Which factors need to consider when choose Hinges
1. Is it a fire, smoke or emergency escape door?
2. How heavy is the door and what are the door dimension(height, width and thickness)?
3. What is the door's construction and are there any unusal features that could affect the hinges?
4. Where is the door situated e.g internal or external; is it near the coast or in a swiming pool?
5. What level of use/abuse will the door be subject to e.g office, hospital or school corridor?
6. What other items of hardware are to be fitted,that may be affect the hinge performance, typically door closer or door stops?
7. Any other unusal features involved e.g. door has radius top or the door is a bifold.

We use the internationally recognized Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL) standard for all product inspections. For each inspection, this allows the client to set their acceptable quality tolerance levels.
Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL)
D&D Inspectors exclusively use ISO 2859 tables to measure AQL. These tables are a United States standard with equivalents in all national and international standardization organizations (ANSI/ASQC Z1.4, NF06-022, BS 6001, DIN 40080).
The Acceptable Quality Limit, commonly referred to as AQL, is a method widely used to measure a production order sample to find whether or not the entire product order has met the client's specifications. The customer then has the data to make an informed decision to accept or reject the goods.
Your inspection report will clearly state if your production has passed or failed your selected AQL.
How do I determine the right sample size and acceptance number?
Our trained account managers will be available to ensure you choose the inspection and AQL that is correct for your needs.
For a hypothetical inspection of a production with 4,000 units, with an Acceptable Quality Limit of II, Table A indicates a general inspection level of "L".
Referring to Table B row L. For a sample size of 200, with an AQL of 2.5, no more than 10 units may fail for a passed report.
