Step 1:- Identify the required window hinge stack height.
To measure the stack height of an existing window hinge:-
With the window hinge fully closed so that all of the arms are stacked on top of each other, measure from the bottom arm of the window hinge to the top arm of the window hinge. This measurement is the stack height. The standard stack heights for window hinges are 13mm and 17mm.
