  • Butt Hinge

Have you tried seeing the door hinge in your wooden and glass doors? If you have seen a door hinge with two identical leaves, then that’s what you call butt hinges. Oftentimes, these are the go-to choice by homeowners because of its high load capacity. If you have heavy wooden or steel doors, a butt hinge won’t let you down.

It has two identical wings or leaves (with some screw holes on both leaves); where one is screwed fixed to your door frame, and the other to the door. The knuckle, sleeves, and pin are the ones responsible for making your door move.

The knuckle is composed of sleeves (curled metal sheets). Meanwhile, a pin is inserted through the knuckle. If the knuckle and pin are destroyed or corroded, then your door will have a hard time traveling while creating a squeaking noise.

Further, there are sub-categories of butt hinges that include the following:

  • Lift-join butt hinges: Allows you to quickly set apart your door from its frame by removing the pins of the hinges.
  • Rising butt hinges: If some areas of your home have uneven or elevated floors, then installing this butt hinge is ideal.
  • Ball-bearing butt hinges: It is identical with the standard butt hinge with an additional part, the ball bearing, which increases its carrying load capacity.
  • Flush Hinge

If you want a sleek door hinge with reliable strength, then a flush hinge is right for you. As your door closes, one of its leaves encloses to the other allowing more space to be saved.

Unlike the standard butt hinge, this one has a lower load capacity. Its compact and durable design is geared towards light to medium-sized doors. Our door specialists will help you choose the best flush hinge to install in your exterior doors.

  • Ball Bearing Hinge

Do you have wide and heavy entry doors? A+ Doors NYC will install the right ball bearing hinge that meets your door specifications. This hinge style is purposely designed for heavier doors.

With this hinge style, you are confident of getting a consistent soft door mechanism.
