Cabinet Door Pivot Hinges
Looking for semi-concealed hinges to complete your kitchen cabinet installation or remodel? You came to the right place. At HardwareSource, we keep our inventory stocked with an assortment of cabinet door hinges that allow doors to fully open and rest completely flat against the neighboring cabinets. Pivot hinges, also known as knife hinges, are a type of hinge that is mortised into the frame and top or bottom edge of the cabinet door. They are typically unique to doors that are heavy or large doors that require a special installation.
Pivot hinges differ from other hinges in that they pivot around a point rather than along a longer hinge pin. One of the main advantages of choosing these hinges is that the only visible part of the hinge is usually the pin or axis point on which the hinge rotates. These hinges can be used for inset doors, overlay doors, and even partial inset doors. Some pivot door hinges can be installed as concealed hinges to give cabinets a clean, seamless appearance. A heavy-duty pivot hinge can carry a lot more weight than a butt hinge, because the door's weight is primarily supported by the bottom arm and the floor rather than the door frame. This design reduces the stress on the frame and prevents sagging.
All of the knife hinges in our selection are made of quality materials to ensure durability and long life, such as brass and stainless steel. We also offer a number of finishes to help you find a solution that will complement any existing hardware in your home, including polished brass, brushed nickel, and oil-rubbed bronze, just to name a few. We also carry reversible hinges, spring-loaded hinges, center hinges that pivot on a self-lubricating bearing.
Whether you are shopping for an overlay door frame, a partial inset door frame, a full inset door frame, or an offset door frame, we have all your needs covered in one convenient place. All pivot hinges are in stock and ready to ship by the next day, so you can get the job done correctly and quickly. If you have any questions or need help finding a specific pivot hinge for an application, our hardware experts are happy to help. Please don't hesitate to contact us for additional information or further assistance. Call 1-858-322-6353, email info@HardwareSource.com, or chat online with a representative while you shop.
