When it comes to searching for a hinge that provides durability, a clean appearance, and a straightforward application, you will be hard-pressed to find a better solution than butt hinges. A butt hinge, otherwise known as a full mortise hinge, is a type of hinge comprised of two symmetrical leaves that are joined by a pivoting pin. You will most often see these hinges used on commercial and residential doors but they are also popularly used throughout homes in cabinetry, furniture, and more. These hinges fasten to the edge of a door, which butts up against the frame. One leaf is mortised into the edge of the door and other is fastened into the jamb. If this sounds like the right solution for you, we have all your needs covered!
We offer a variety of styles and finishes to choose from!
Full-sized butt hinges are available with or without removable pins. Non-removable hinges are most often used in areas and applications where security is a main concern. These hinges have a set screw in the barrel that is accessible only when the door is swung open. This security feature deters someone from removing the hinge pin and the door in terms of exterior doors that open out. However, removable hinges make it very convenient for you to remove doors in the event of painting, renovating, or transporting wide furniture.
We supply architectural-grade, ball-bearing, and electrified hinges to suit any need. Architectural-grade hinges are thicker and of much higher quality than residential-grade hinges, especially when it comes to heavier doors found on custom homes. Electrified hinges allow a low voltage electric current to pass from the door frame leaf to the door side leaf of a standard architectural-grade hinge, allowing control of various electric items on the door, such as electric locks, access control devices, and alarms. The wiring will be completely concealed when the door is in the closed position.
The finish of a butt hinge has a significant impact on the look of your finished installation. That is precisely why we carry a wide variety of finishes to choose from, including tones of black, brass, bronze, chrome, pewter, stainless steel, nickel, and much more. If you are looking for a decorative solution that will give your home an updated appearance, we carry an assortment of full-sized butt hinges topped with ball tips, finials, and other ornamental elements. No matter what kind of butt hinge you need, you can always count on us to have them in stock and ready to ship!
