Deceptive in appearance and its importance dismissed, the value of the hinge should not be underestimated in daily life.
Just think of all the doors you go through EVERYDAY bedroom..car…front door.. all the kitchen cupboards, the garage doors, windows & gates opened and closed.
Without the correct hinge these simple, everyday movements would not be possible or at the least would be made a lot harder.

A few things to consider when choosing a hinge

 

 

A few things to consider when choosing a hinge

Because the hinge is used in a wide variety of ways there are many variations (as many as 21); spring, butt, continuous – the list goes on!
They are designed, manufactured and finished with an application in mind.
This means they will have unique characteristics useful for the given situation, for example, a hard-wearing finish for external hinges.
Choosing the correct hinge, with the correct properties will ensure it does the job you need for as long as you need it.

Left, or Right?

Does your door open in or out?

If the door opens away from you and the hinge is to be on the left, then use a left-handed rising butt hinge.

If the hinge is to be on the right, then a right-handed hinge will be required.

Hinges can be in full view or low profile and hidden from sight or a mixture of the two.

Decorative hinge - aesthetically pleasing in shape or finish, can also be functional

Semi-concealed - commonly used in face framed cabinets 

Concealed - not visible to the eye, hidden on the inside of the door, cabinet etc

Do you require a specialist hinge?  

Does it need to be stronger to hold a heavy or larger than average door?

Fire Resistant?

Self-Closing or Soft Close?
