Hello all and Happy 2018 to everyone!
Apologies I may have missed replying to a post or message and have not been here for 6 months maybe.... shtf with family stuff then.
HellBetty is alive and treating me well, tho she looks about the same. Have a mat floor in... bed is actually in my sons basement Instead of storage and believe it or not that is progress! I THOUGHT I had 3 different carpenters engaged for the wood build portion- by just sandbagged each time. Why do tradesmen seem to hate small jobs?
Please see attached photos. Project is retrofit of teak cabana bed for platform bed with hatch doors to access storage underneath. So i need hold-open hinges for the hatch doors.
The second photo shows underneath of hatch door and edge where hinge would be mounted
Hatch Doors to open from center like a pair of cellar doors.
Hatch Doors: 28”x27.5” ea.
Approx 12 lbs ea (15 lbs max each)
Slats are 2-1/4”x5/8” teak
the full length wood frames will be mounted to side rails (seen on right side of top photo). The rail will be mounted to van sides with leg supports and cross brace underneath.
Photo 1. The cabana beds side by side with 2 slatted hatch doors (28x28”portions at top of first photo). Hart has doors will be hinged to that wood frame and will lay flush with slatted bed surface as seen at top right.
Photo 2. Bottomside detail of hatch door to be fitted with hinges (it is flipped upside down in this photo)
Photo 3. Interior. Side rails to be anchored to sheet metal van walls and stabilized with legs and cross bracing. The two slatted beds fit side by side above wheel wells. Will insulate and cover side walls (not sure of wall covering yet- Need to allow for airflow from rear hvac vents.)
Clear as mud? I have a link to this source but can anyone here suggest a hinge type for the hatch doors?
