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.
There are many hinge styles to choose from and what you need will depend on what type of door you are hanging. There are hinges for residential doors, gates, screen doors and cabinet doors. Then there are three types of cabinet doors; lipped, flush and overlay. Butt hinges are the most common type of hinge. They consist of two flaps with screw holes connected by a pin and can be used on any door. The pin can be tipped with balls or finial s for a decorative touch. T-hinges are shaped like the letter T and are used on garage doors and chest lids. Pivot hinges are meant for overlay cabinet doors or doors that rest on the door frame. Butterfly hinges that are usually decorative as well as functional are for use on flush doors or doors that rest within the frame. One of the most popular types of hinge is the spring-loaded hinge. Also called a self-closing hinge a tiny spring inside allows the door to close on its own.
Although steel is one of the most common materials for hinges, they can also be manufactured from brass, bronze or aluminum. However, even when the hinge is constructed of brass or bronze, the pins on a high-quality hinge are still manufactured from steel for increased durability. In addition, hinges designed for the heaviest of doors and highest usage typically are only made in steel due to its strength and durability.
