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.
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.
What do begin to fail are the screws that hold the door hinges on the door and the frame. The stresses and strains of everyday openings begin to loosen the screws. This is particularly true on heavier doors that are either left open a lot or bear lots of traffic.
Some are shaped like butterflies and others you can;t even see. Some open with a pivot and others close automatically. There are many types of cabinet door hinge available, but we often don;t even look at them in our own homes. We should because without them our daily lives would be harder.
If dealing with cabinet doors the type of hinge you use will depend on the door type. There are three door types; lipped, flush and overlay. A lipped door has a lip cut around it and works well with most hinges. A flush door rests within the frame and works well with butterfly hinges. A butterfly hinge works like a butt hinge but is hung on the outside and is more ornamental ranging in styles from colonial to art deco.
Some people don;t like to see their hinge at all. In this case they should invest in Soss or Blum hinges. They are recessed into to the door and frame so they are completely concealed when the door closes. There are also gate hinges for gates and piano hinges which are continuous hinges used on pianos and other things that you want to open completely.
