Geared continuous hinges are most often found in steel or aluminum. Lighter weight continuous piano hinges are often made of brass. The heavy duty commercial hinges distribute weight and stress along the full length of door and frame, thus preventing misaligned pivot points of individual hinges.
Most simply make do with the hinges that came with the cabinet. Only when they begin to squeak and sway in complaint about their endless exercise do we give thought to changing them. And only then do we only change the offending hinge that has failed to do its duty tightly and quietly.
The pivot hinge is made for overlay doors. One is mounted on the top and the other on the bottom with portions of each bent over and mounted to the frame and door resulting in a concealed hinge. Perhaps the most popular hinge is the spring mounted hinge. Fitted with a small spring inside this door hinge allows the door to close on its own, automatically.
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.
The type of cabinet door you have will determine the type of cabinet hinge you will need. There are three main types of cabinet door; flush, lipped and overlay. A flush door rests within the door frame. An overlay rests on the door frame and a lipped door has a lip cut out around it.
Other types of hinges include the knuckle hinge. Its advantages are that it is both strong and decorative. It makes a good hinge for an outside door which is typically heavier than an inside door. In addition to this it gives your outside door pizzazz and makes the neighbors gawk.
They;re small. They;re used every day. And when they don;t match with a room;s décor they can really stick out. No they aren;t cabinet knobs. They;re hinges. First used in 1600 B.C. they have increased the strength of man nearly tenfold and are perhaps one of the most important inventions for everyday use.
