    "This hinge opens both ways, like a saloon door in the Westerns.
    They are used on commercial kitchen doors so that the door can be opened by pushing from either direction whilst holding plates etc"

    "Double action spring hinges swing open in both directions and are fully self-closing.
    Our recommendation for installation is placing 2 hinges up near the top of the door and one near the bottom. the door leaf can be opened in two directions"
