Any door hinge should be properly maintained to ensure the durability and operation of the opening for an extended lifetime. The accumulation of dust on hinges is a natural occurrence, as cycling the hinge creates a small static charge that attracts particles from the air.
The maintenance of a PEMKO continuous geared hinge is easy and consists of just two procedures:
1. Once every sixth months or so, the hinge should be cleaned or wiped to remove any dust that has collected around the bearings.
2. The hinge should be inspected annually for any fasteners which may have become loose.
Performing these basic and quick tasks will maintain a hinge which provides worry free operation for years to come.
