Inset thick heavy door

A contractor from Calgary says:
Hey guys, I?m building a concealed medicine cabinet in a wall, the wall and cabinet door will be getting tiled so the result is a thick (approx 1-1/8?) and heavy (may be 25-30lb) inset door. Will these hinges work? I know I will need 5-6 hinges to support the weight but will a door that thick clear on opening?

Looking at the specification for the 32-335 hing, the weight load per hinge would be 30 pounds each. These are nice heavy hinges, so I suggest two or three should be enough to carry the weight. 

I find the problem could be with the thickness of the door. These hinges are made to be used with doors of a 3/4" thickness. I played around with one from stock to see if it could be used with a 1-1/8" thick set back. What I found is that the hinge pulled out when opened, but I'm not sure if it will pull out far enough out of the opening to clear the wall. It looks close, possibly 3/16" clearance from the corner of the wall. See if you can make the door thinner.
