How to Use The Chart

After determining the weight and width of the door, draw a straight line through the door width and weight to line “A”, as indicated in the example.

Continue with a horizontal line sideways from the point of intersection with line “A” until the door thickness is reached.

Use the number of hinges and the model number indicated on this line.

Soss Hinge Weight Capacity Example

A wood door 30″ wide, 200 lbs., with a thickness of 1-3/4″ will require four #218 SOSS Invisible Hinges. Using the red line in the Soss selection chart shows how the sizing and selection can be determined.
