Fauna. Door Hinges. September 26th , 2017.
A room is not a room without a door and door hinges. If there were no hinges you would have either a wall or a hole in the wall. Without door hinges there would never have been the song lyrics nobody knows what happens behind closed doors", because doors couldnt have closed in order for secret things to happen behind them. You must be thinking there had to be something that was used before the shift was made to what we today know as door hinges. You would be right. What was around before hinges was portiers. These were large tapestries that were hanging in front of a big hole in the wall. They would block the entryway to a room and had to be pushed out of the way every time you wanted to go in or out.
No matter what type of door is being installed, a hinge of some type is necessary. Hinge designs include butt hinges, spring hinges, geared continuous hinges and a myriad of utility hinge designs. Which one you purchase depends on the location and function of the door. A quality hinge provides long-lasting functionality which saves in repair costs and time. Although steel is one of the most common materials for hinges, they can also be manufactured from brass, bronze or aluminum. However, even when the hinge is constructed of brass or bronze, the pins on a high-quality hinge are still manufactured from steel for increased durability. In addition, hinges designed for the heaviest of doors and highest usage typically are only made in steel due to its strength and durability.
Door hinges well may be the most under appreciated items in your home. Think about it, how often do you think about your door hinges? You probably only really notice them when they begin squeaking or creaking. You notice them even more when they start to frustrate you because no matter how much WD40 you have, it isnt going to stop your hinges from failing. Unfortunately door hinges getting old and squeaking and creaking is a part of life. Its just time passing.
When your door hinges have gone past their prime, you cant always find matching hinges to replace the ones that had treated you so well, for so long. So, your only option is to replace all the hinges on a door and if there are more doors in the room, youll probably have to replace those as well, or else that one hinge will be a tacky standout. Although they are small pieces of hardware, they will catch the eye if theres one that doesnt match. Its the old truth that no one notices when things are right, but they always seem to see when things are wrong.
Unlike the old days when door hinges were made of iron, brass or steel, todays hinges come in an array of materials and finishes. Thanks to modern manufacturing techniques, most of these finishes are maintenance free. Left alone, they wont tarnish, rust or fail over time. What do begin to fail are the screws that hold the door hinges on the door and the frame. The stresses and strains of everyday openings begin to loosen the screws. This is particularly true on heavier doors that are either left open a lot or bear lots of traffic.
