Manfred Frank - Hinge Models

Please note that sufficient cavity space is required for operating the 11mm adjustment spanner when mounting the MFH 200. All existing frame mounting and door mounting options can be combined with both models. The MFH 200 is adjusted by using an 11mm open ended spanner and a 4mm Allen Key tool. The trajectory/geometry and movement is identical for both hinge models.
