Lhh and rhh
I would be grateful if you would explain how you tell if a door is LHH hung or RHH hung. Thankyou.
I presume you are refering to kitchen units Left hand hung and right hand hung will be shown by a < or a > its always easiest to tell by starting at the corner point of your kitchen as a door will always open towards a corner not away from it or at the end of a run as they will open towards the wall not away from it. If you are in the right corner then this is rhh or if you in the left this is lhh then you can work out what simble is used for what you are given on your drawing
hope this helps

Left hand hung means as you push door open the hinges are on the left and vice versa. I am assuming you are asking about household doors, and this reference is usually concerning rising butt hinges which are handed and not interchangeable.

LHH, or left hand hung, refers to the side of the door (stile) to which the hinges are fitted when the door is viewed in such a way as the knuckles can be seen. As you can see from the previous answer even trademen on agreement on this term !!
