The door hinge is the piece of hardware that connects your door to frame, allowing it to open and close. When they’re working well, you don’t think much about them. When they’re not though, the door can get squeaky, start to sag, and not open as smoothly as you want it to.

What is are door hinges?

The door hinge is the piece of hardware that connects your door to frame, allowing it to open and close. When they’re working well, you don’t think much about them. When they’re not though, the door can get squeaky, start to sag, and not open as smoothly as you want it to.

Your doors are an undeniably important part of your house. They have the hugely critical role of keeping your home safe from intruders, and for many families the job they do of protecting the privacy of everyone in the house from each other seems just as significant. For your doors to do their job, the hinges they sit on have an important role to play, too.

Whether you’re installing a new door or simply trying to repair one in your home, it’s important to understand how the hinge works, and the integral role it plays in daily operation.

To help you learn more about this small, yet essential, piece of hardware, we’ve put together the following guide.  Here are all of the main considerations you should be aware of when buying new door hinges for your home or office.

Types of Door Hinges

One of the first things to figure out when buying new door hinges is the type you need. And there are a lot of different types available, each of which are best suited for certain types of doors and uses. If you’re simply replacing hinges that are worn out, you’ll probably want to stick with the same type the door used before, so identify which category the current ones belong in before you start your search.

Ball Bearing Hinges

Ball bearing hinges are one type of mortise hinge, which means they’re designed to be installed sunk into the door and frame in a cutout in each made to fit. They’re a good choice for particularly heavy doors. They have bearings that are permanently lubricated to make opening and closing heavy doors smoother, and ensure the hinges can stand up to frequent use with a heavy door. These are popular for exterior doors that are heavy, particularly for commercial businesses.

Plain Bearing Hinges

Plain bearing hinges are another type of mortise hinge. They’re a simple design and a common choice for both residential and commercial doors. A plain bearing hinge features a barrel made of multiple pieces that are held together by a pin. Sometimes the pin is removable to make removing the door easier, sometimes it’s not. Nevertheless, a removable pin is still something to consider as you are browsing your options.

Butt Hinges

Butt hinges are a popular type of plain bearing hinge that are good for heavy doors. These are commonly found on interior doors, but also have a use for exterior and commercial doors, too. These are easy to remove when needed and generally have removable pins.

Spring Hinges

Spring hinges are a third type of mortise hinge.  Featuring a built-in spring within the barrel, this type of hinge is designed to automatically close the door after it has been opened. Because they are designed to self-close, a spring hinge is a great fit for external doors, keep the elements out, and the air conditioning in.  These are commonly found on garage doors, since they help keep car fumes from getting into the house.

 

Double-action spring hinges work both ways – automatically closing the door whether you open it in or out. They’re more popular for lightweight doors like the ones you’d have for the entrance to a kitchen or dining room.

Concealed / European Hinges

European hinges, sometimes called concealed hinges or flush hinges, are mounted on the inside of the door, which means you don’t actually see them from the outside of the door.  Primarily used for cabinet doors, this type of hinge provides a clean and modern look.

Continuous / Piano Hinges

Piano hinges, sometimes called continuous hinges, run the full length of the door, distributing the full weight of the door along the whole hinge. This is the type of hinge used for piano lids, hence the name. However, it’s also not uncommon to find these used on smaller household items, such as a jewelry box or storage chest.

 

For doors, specifically, continuous piano hinges are the top choice for blast doors, commonly used on home safes, bank vaults and bomb shelters. In recent years, this type of hinge has become a popular choice for barn doors and other rustic decor.

Flush Hinges

Flush hinges are another common choice for cabinets or other lightweight interior doors. They’re partially hidden on the outside, but not entirely concealed like European hinges. They don’t require a cutout to be installed like mortise hinges; they can be attached to the surface of the door with screws.

Swing and Sway Door Hinges

Swing and Sway hinges are sometimes called café door hinges, because that’s their main use. They’re designed to provide perfect door alignment by using in-out lateral adjustment. They work quietly and make it easy to remove the door when needed.

Knuckle Hinges

Knuckle hinges have a small ball bearing in the middle connected to two narrow strips that are attached the door and frame. These are often used for decorative doors since only the knuckle is visible when the door is closed. They can be used for both light and heavy doors.
