Hinges

Our Hinges are available in a wide range of sizes, finishes & types to suit any residential or commercial application. Our hinges usually come individually unless stated otherwise. Scroll down to view our full range of hinges.

 

For retrofitting; regular hinges are usually measured flat (both butts fully open) across the full width & height of the hinge.

 

Generally; 

For entrance & heavy doors: we recommend 3 Ball Bearing Hinges (typically H100xW75mm) for reliability and smooth-action for years to come.

For internal doors: we recommend 2 Fixed Pin Hinges (typically H100xW75mm) in most cases, or 2 Ball Bearing Hinges if smooth-action is a point of concern.

For bathroom doors: we recommend 2 Fixed Pin Hinges (typically H100xW75mm) in most cases, or 2 Ball Bearing Hinges if smooth-action is a point of concern. For smaller bathrooms, 2 Lift-Off Hinges may be needed to pass some local councils' regulations.

For wider than typical door jams: we recommend 2 or 3 Broad Butt Hinges (typically H100xW125mm all the way up to H100xW300mm) for the door to be able to swing past a wider door jam, bricks, and alike.

Our hinges;

Fixed Pin: the pin of the hinge is fixed and cannot be removed. These are the most common type of hinge.

Loose Pin: the pin of the hinge can be removed carefully with the right tools, so the door can be taken off without unscrewing the hinges.

Ball Bearing: pivots around a few ball bearings rather than a pin. These hinges are characterised by their smooth-action movement and ability to be used in heavier duty applications.

Broad Butt: allows a door to clear wider door jams, bricks, and alike. Typically, they are fixed pin and are essentially a wider than normal hinge.

Parliament: allows a door to clear wider door jams, bricks, and alike. Usually used in lighter duty applications for aesthetics, and were traditionally used on shutter windows.

Lift Off: as the name suggests, the door can be lifted off even while shut - permitted they are installed correctly and the door jam allows for this. Often used in smaller bathrooms & commercial premises to allow quick access in case of a medical emergency, etc. Some local councils mandate this on smaller bathrooms.

Hirline (Quick Fix): a smaller butt folds into a larger butt, quick to install and usually cheaper than a regular hinge. Does not require any morticing for installation in most cases.

Radius: a regular fixed pin hinge but has radiused corners for quicker morticing and installation. Often used for retrofitting as many 80's & 90's builds used these hinges as standard.

Spring Hinge: has a spring action that can be adjusted manually to allow a door to swing back to a position after a door is pushed open or closed. Often used in restaurant kitchens and such.

Self Rising: the hinge rises a little as it swings open, helping to clear high carpets & alike.
