Drilling doors for Hinges

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Did you know that we can drill your doors for Blum hinges? We also can supply 100 degree, 180 degree and cranked hinges. We offer soft close hinges as an option in 100 degree hinges.

When drilling doors, we will bore them 100mm from the top, 100mm from the bottom, and 1 or 2 more in the middle if they are tall doors. On doors that are “Handed” because of an arch in the pattern, an inset handle or with 2 panels, we need to know if we are to drill left or right. If you do not specify, we must assume you do not mind.

Expando Hinges

We can drill for Expando or regular mount hinges.

Expando Hinges have plastic plugs that require alignment holes beside the main hinge hole

When ordering doors to be bored, be sure to state which type of hinge you would prefer. If you do not specify which type, we will drill for regular hinges.

Drilling doors for hinges is an extra cost service we offer. If it’s not specified otherwise, doors will not be bored.
