Hinges

Hinges are simply bearings or movable joints, that sit on a door, a lid or a gate and allow it to swing open or closed. There are so many different types of hinges available but the most common is the morticed (also known as recessed) butt hinge. A joiner will make two small spaces, known as mortices, in the door frame and the door for the hinge flaps/leaves to sit in, so these lie flat together and only the hinge knuckle is visible when the door is closed.

When measuring your hinge, make sure that you lie it open and measure the width and height across the entire hinge, not just a single leaf.

Choosing a hinge can seem a bit of a daunting task but it does not have to be. Firstly, you need to consider where you will be fitting your hinge. Is it for a counter flap, is it for a gate, is it for a toilet cubicle or is it for a door? If it is for a door, is it a lightweight door, is it a fire door, is it an internal door? By answering all these questions, you will be able to work out what type of hinge, what grade of hinge, what finish, what size of hinge and how many hinges you will need.
