Jeanette. Door Hinges. September 06th , 2017.
There are several types of door hinge available. The most common is the butt hinge. This consists of two flaps with screw holes attached by a pin or a rod. To take the door down all you would have to do is remove the pins. You can choose to add finials or balls to the pins for a decorative touch. Garage doors are usually attached with T-hinges. Shaped like the letter T the horizontal part is attached to the door frame while the vertical part is attached to the door. These hinges can be plain or ornamental and lift up rather than out. If you have folding doors you might use a Soss hinge. Named for its inventor this door hinge is recessed into the door edges so when the door is folded it is completely concealed. It must be installed exactly or it will not work.
Now that you appreciate the invention of door hinges, you need to make sure you have the right ones at work in your home. First, make sure you have enough to do the job that needs to be done on your door. For the most part you will be able to choose between 2 or 3 door hinges on most doors. In some cases the door will come with the set number of hinges. In other cases, you should think about the weight of the door before deciding on the number of hinges that should be used.
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.
Theyre small and inconspicuous, but they really hold a room together. No they are not throw pillows or candles. They are door hinges and they are in every room of your house. From the refrigerator to the cellar door you use them every day. Sure you dont really think about them, but can you imagine what life would be like without them? Your front door might be a large rock or chunk of wood. Or if you are not strong enough to move one of those you would climb a ladder and enter your home through the roof.
Most doors today are sold pre-hung, with hinges on them, when you get a new door it usually comes with factory standard door hinges. If you are remodeling you want to make sure the new door hinges fit the style of all the other ones in the house. Thankfully they are easy to swap out. The holes for door hinges are usually standard as long as you buy the same size that you had previously. The door hinges you have will likely have either two or three holes. How you change the door hinges depends on which style you have.
