Question: Marcus Tudor Black Iron Strap Hinge
Hi there, I am looking for a pair of sturdy reasonably heavy gauge 18" hinges that will go on a heavy external door. Would these do the job?

Answer:
Thanks for the question. These are sturdy hinges and could be used to hang an external door. If the door is heavy we always advise considering fitting 3 hinges to the door. These hinges are sold in pairs so please allow for this when ordering. If the hinges are fitted in an external environment they will require periodic maintenance to maintain the finish as is the case with all black iron fittings from any supplier.
