Doors and windows opening direction
The two diagrams below should be read carefully, because to apply some models of hinges and locks it’s necessary to define in advance, according to the opening movement of the door or window, if they are RIGHT or LEFT.
Traditional Definition: Usually used in the portuguese market. It’s defined taking into consideration the opening movement, when pushing the door or opening in clockwise direction it's considered Right and in the opposite direction to clockwise Left.
EN 1935 / EN 12519 / DIN 107 Definition: These standards define that doors or windows opened in clockwise direction are considered Left and in the opposite direction to clockwise Right or according to the side the hinges are placed, taking into consideration the opening movement when pulling the door.
We use the TRADITIONAL definition in most of our hinges, taking into account the definition established in the market by the various agents of the sector. The models in which the standards EN 1935/EN/DIN 12519 107 are applied are specifically indicated.
