Pivot hinges, one of the most popular styles, are designed for overlay doors. One hinge is mounted on top the other on the bottom with portions of each screwed into the frame resulting in a concealed hinge.
Adjustable spring hinges are also available in steel, brass and bronze. This type of hinge is less expensive than an automatic door closer for interior doors of hospitals, schools, hotels and other commercial buildings.
In existence for thousands of years, hinges have come a long way to finally reach their status of today. Early versions involved large boulders and pivots, later evolving into wooden planks and animal hide. Regardless of how humble their beginnings may have been, getting through life without them today would definitely be much more difficult.
The instinct many people have when going to get replacement hinges is just to go to the store and see what gets their attention. This is alright if you are planning a complete overhaul of your cabinets, but if you"re not, you need to make sure you have the right hinges for the job so you don"t end up having to fill old holes, drill new holes and repaint or refinish the cabinets
Having said this, and to avoid grief and misery (like having to get back in the car, drive back to the store, dig out the receipt and start over), you do need to know an important fact. You need to know if the hinge that you require is left-handed or right-handed. Without this important information, you are doomed to a guessing game with a 50% chance of losing or winning, but really, more of losing.
One of the most common types of hinge is the butt hinge. It consists of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin or rod. It is most often used on doors and cabinets. Another common type of hinge is the t-strap hinge. This hinge is shaped like the letter T with the horizontal part attaching to the frame and the vertical part attaching to the door. This type of hinge is usually seen on garage doors and box or chest lids and can be decorative. It ranges in styles from colonial to art deco and beyond.
Garage doors are usually attached with T-hinges. Shaped like the letter T the horizontal part is attached to the door frame while the vertical part is attached to the door. These hinges can be plain or ornamental and lift up rather than out.
