Cliffside’s solid brass hinge line has sizes ranging from large to small. In today’s article, we will examine another mortised hinge, following up on last week’s feature on the BH2A hinges.

  • Leaf length: 21/2
  • Overall length: 31/2
  • Open width: 15/8

The BH3A hinge is the largest mortised offering in the Cliffside line. It is available in 13 attractive finishes: the 11 colors of the signature hardware line, along with Nickel Chrome and Old Silver. The BH3A is manufactured using the same extrusion process as the BH2A, but its heavier barrel and longer length make it ideal for larger doors, or for those customers who request a bolder statement from their cabinet hinges.

The BH3A hinge is offered with an attractive minaret finial. Its 8mm barrel is ideal for use in any project. Originally non-adjustable, this piece was formerly known as the BH3NA, but now the adjustability of this hinge makes it a smart choice for cabinetmakers, and with screws finished to coordinate with all of our colors, the BH3A also has finishes available to match each of our solid brass hardware suites. This hinge is simply a great selection for use in any kitchen or bath with inset cabinets
