We are using this hinge in an application at work and nobody seems to know the proper name for it.  We don't often use stuff like this in what we do so this is a first for us.  We are referring to it as a double acting hinge but something tells me that's not right.  If I do a search for a double acting hinge, nothing comes up.  Would like to find some design info on it because the sample you see below is over a thousand miles from me and I don't feel like going to pick it up.  Thanks.

Check a catalog like "Woodcraft" or similar. Good Luck, Rick

I googled 'Double Pin Hinge' and found all this.

 

Clicked on this link and it may be a multiple pin hinge.

Thanks Kenny.  Looks like double pin hinge is the most common name.  Makes sense.  Guess I was stuck on the "action" more than the double.

Very interesting !!

 

A double-acting hinge will allow a door to swing in either direction inside the jamb.  ...The hinge pictured does not appear to allow that.

 

Looking at the way the hinge pivots, a door could swing out and away from the jamb, allowing an unobstructed opening.  ....This style of hinge is often referred to as a "swing clear" hinge.

 

Your pic appears to be of a bronze casting with stainless(?) pins.  .....This suggests a marine application??? 

 

Please let us know what you find out.

Yes, it is a bronze hinge but it's not a marine application that I know of.  They are for a hatch in a grating area.  Not sure why they want bronze but the customer is always right!

Maybe made out of bronze so it won't rust or perhaps for use in a flammable location so there is zero chance of a spark.

Well I didn't order it and since I work all by my lonesome over a thousand miles away, I don't know and I'm not asking.  My guess is they simply called it a hinge.
