We offer several varieties of special door hinges!
Not all hinges are created equal, but a lot can hinge on the hardware you choose for a special application. That's where we can help. We are one of the only hardware suppliers who regularly stocks those elusive hinges you probably won't be able to find at your local hardware store.
Half Surface Hinge: This type of hinge consists of one leaf that is mortised into the door frame and another leaf that is mounted to the door's surface. When the hinge is set in the 90-degree closed position, the mortised leaf that attaches to the door jamb will require a one-inch-wide mortise. The surface-mounted leaf will cover two inches of width on the door's surface. These specialty hinges are excellent for installing new doors or screen doors into an existing frame. H and HL are the two basic shapes of half surface hinges that have been traditionally used for inset cabinet doors.
Olive Knuckle Door Hinge: This Paumelle-style type of hinge features an oval-shaped knuckle and has been manufactured for over two centuries without much variation in its design. This hinge is most often used for lighter, full-sized doors and offers a decorative alternative to traditional butt hinges. Only the single knuckle is visible when the door is in the closed position. A door installed with an olive knuckle hinge can also be lifted off the door frame in the closed position. Please note that these hinges are handed, but we offer a wide variety of sizes to suit all sorts of doors and preferences.
We also carry bi-fold hinges for folding screen partitions and surface-mounted pivot hinges to reinforced sagging doors as well as Type 316 stainless-steel hinges that are suitable for marine applications. We can help you find the special door hinges you need. We also proudly offer a variety of hardware finishes to choose from, including black, brass, bronze, chrome, nickel, steel, and other tones. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
