Emmeline. Door Hinges. September 13th , 2017.

By and large one of the most important inventions for everyday use isnt very large at all. Because of cabinet door hinges we are able to store things away behind doors that previously would have been on shelves. Although originally used in 1600 B.C., the Romans adapted the hinge for home use. Flash forward to the American colonies and hinges were used everywhere. Eventually they were outfitted for the doors of wagons heading west most prominently by Charles Hager in St. Louis. He founded the present day Hager Hardware Company and in the 1900s received a patent for the compact butt hinge and the rest as they say is history.

When it comes to cabinet door hinges the right ones depend on the type of door you have. Basically there are three types of doors lipped, overlay and flush. The lipped door is one in which a lip has been cut completely around the door. The overlay door is cut larger than the opening so that its edges rest on the door frame. Flush doors sit inside the frame with their faces flush within it. Each type of door dictates different types of hinges. Pivot hinges, one of the most popular styles, are designed for overlay doors. One hinge is mounted on top the other on the bottom with portions of each screwed into the frame resulting in a concealed hinge.

Some are shaped like butterflies and others you cant even see. Some open with a pivot and others close automatically. There are many types of cabinet door hinge available, but we often dont even look at them in our own homes. We should because without them our daily lives would be harder. Hinges are generally eight to ten times stronger than the job they are assigned. So if your front door was off its hinges you have to have the strength to move it yourself. That is why before the hinge was in use many people entered their homes by climbing up a ladder and going through a hole in the roof.

Going further back in time were large rocks that would have to be rolled in front of the door and then rolled away, or pieces of wood that were pulled in front of the doorway and pushed back every time you wanted to go in and out. While it did the general job of a door, it was a very inconvenient, and very heavy, way to go. These images illustrate why we should be thankful that someone finally came up with the great idea to make a more easy to use access to a room, namely a door on door hinges.

Butt hinges are the most familiar hinge style to most people and are found on every type of interior and exterior door. When selecting a butt hinge, consider the weight of the door and the level of usage. Youll find products in steel, brass and bronze rated from standard to heavy duty and with two, three or five knuckles. Adjustable spring hinges are also available in steel, brass and bronze. This type of hinge is less expensive than an automatic door closer for interior doors of hospitals, schools, hotels and other commercial buildings.
