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.
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.
Consider your daily activity. You get out of bed in the morning and head for the bathroom door, which is suspended on hinges. You open the door of the medicine cabinet (hinged) and take out your pillbox (hinged). Reaching for the vanity cabinet, you open the hinged door to take a towel for your shower, the door of which is most likely hinged. Already, in just those few moments, you have relied on the invisible hinges several times to accomplish your morning tasks.
Hinges have been in use since 1600 B.C. and now there is a wide variety available. The best way to browse the greatest selection of cabinet hinges is to shop online. Instead of trekking from store to store only to be frustrated by the minimal selection, try browsing form the comfort of home. Shop and compare prices then with a click of the mouse your cabinet hinges will arrive at your door.
Ornamental hinges are another good choice for visible, or surface mounted cabinet door hinges. These come in a wide range of styles, including butterfly and Art Deco.
Whether you are re-doing your kitchen and need all new hinges or just replacing the hinges on one cabinet you should take a moment to admire the strength they give you. Hinges are generally eight to ten times stronger than the task they are assigned. So next time you open a door or shut a cabinet think how heavy that door would be without hinges to essential move it open or closed for you. Once you do this you;ll never take hinges for granted again.
By and large one of the most important inventions for everyday use isn;t very large at all. Because of cabinet door hinges we are able to store things away behind doors that previously would have been on shelves. Although originally used in 1600 B.C., the Romans adapted the hinge for home use. Flash forward to the American colonies and hinges were used everywhere. Eventually they were outfitted for the doors of wagons heading west most prominently by Charles Hager in St. Louis. He founded the present day Hager Hardware Company and in the 1900;s received a patent for the compact butt hinge and the rest as they say is history.
