Selecting a Hinge for Your Walk-in Cooler or Freezer

Posted on

The two most common Walk-in hinges in our industry today are the 1245 series cam-rise hinge and the 1248 series spring assisted hinge. 


The 1245 and 1248 series hinges have a lot in common. Both allow your door to self close and open with minimal effort and both can be reversed to fit a left or right hinged door. Both also come in various offsets to fit your particular door. Shims can be added if your offset is in between the options available.

The difference between the two hinges is that the 1245 uses a self-lubricating nylon cam while the 1248 uses a spring mechanism for extra closing force. These hinges can be used separately or together. Some choose to use the 1248 spring loaded hinge on the top of the door and use the 1245 cam-rise hinge on the bottom of the door.

To learn more about measuring your door's offset check out this video. 

Check out this video to learn more about how to reverse and install these two types of hinges.

If your walk-in hinge does not look like either of these styles and you need help identifying what you need, please send photos to [email protected] and one of our customer service agents will be happy to help you identify what you need.
