Hinging on your success: part 5

In this week’s edition, we turn our focus from inset doors to offset with a focus on Cliffside’s 3-8-OFFSET hinges. These hinges are designed for a different style of door, so it’s easy to see that they have some unique qualities compared to the rest of the Cliffside hinge line.



Quick facts

  • Overall length: 215/16
  • Leaf height: 2″
  • Overlay: 3/8” from frame
  • Barrel diameter: 6mm


In the past three years, the 3-8-OFFSET line has been expanded dramatically. Cliffside began with four finishes: our dark European Antique Brass, a lighter Oxidized Brass, Polished Brass, and Silver Satin. During our 2009 line expansion, customer demand for darker finishes enticed us to add the Black, Old Antique, and Venetian Bronze finishes in that year, as well as the Polished Nickel, due to that color’s rising popularity.

In 2010, when Cliffside introduced our full line of hardware suites, we expanded our hinge offerings even further, adding the final three missing colors (Iron, Old Copper, and Polished Chrome) and completing our line of 3-8-OFFSET. Now, all of these items are shown in our Fine Hardware Collections catalog, with a finish to coordinate with each suite that Cliffside offers.

The 3-8-OFFSET is developed with the same painstaking construction as all of our hinges, relying on brass extrusion to create the strongest possible piece while reducing the risk of flaking finishes and powdery pins. At the same time, Cliffside offers the hardware industry’s widest finish selection in extruded offset hinges, ensuring that our customers’ expectations are met — and exceeded — with every purchase.
