1. Category of use

Category 1Light duty. For use in buildings, houses or other living areas, low frequency of use, clear intention of careful handling, low risk of accidents or misuse.
Category 2Medium duty. For use in buildings, houses or other living areas, medium frequency of use, some intention of careful handling, risk of accidents or misuse.
Category 3Heavy duty. For use in buildings, high frequency of use, little intention of careful handling, risk of accidents or misuse.
Category 4Severe duty. Hinges for doors that are subject to frequent and heavy use.
