PIONEER, Ohio - April 22, 2021 - PRLog -- SOSS Door Hardware, a leader in the door hardware industry and the creator of the SOSS Invisible Hinge, just announced the release of the market's first concealed wrap-around door hinge. The primary concern when creating a concealed or secret door is hiding the door reveal, which is the space between the door and jamb. The only way to hide this gap is to cover it with molding or trim, but with traditional concealed hinges the door would bind up when opened. The SOSS 518 Wrap Around Hinge solves this problem by using a wide throw technology that will allow the hinge to wrap around trim or molding without the door binding.

"With so many people interested in building completely secret doors and rooms we are excited to bring this revolutionary new concealed hinge to the market," said Neil Marko, President and CEO of SOSS Door Hardware. "Many people ran into issues when using most concealed hinges because molding and trim would bind the door when opened. The 518 Wrap Around Hinge solves that problem." He added.

Creating truly secret doors had limitations due to the need to hide the door reveal. The primary way people dealt with the issue is by creating a door that has trim covering the gap, but the door had to always open inward to avoid the door binding with the trim. If you couldn't create a space or room where the door always opened in, you were stuck. The R&D team at SOSS went to work and created the world's first wrap-around concealed hinge. The new hinge uses a wide throw technology to open a door in or out by wrapping around the trim or molding. Now, for the first time, you can create a completely secret door and it doesn't matter if it needs to open in or out. This hinge will provide a lot more options to people that want to build a completely secret door or room.
