Door Hinges. Sunday , November 26th , 2017 - 11:00:59 AM
You should put the first screw in at this point, at the top of the door. Make sure someone is holding up the weight of the door (or keep it on shims) so the weight doesnt pull that screw out. Close the door and make sure it shuts properly. It should be hitting the strike plate evenly. If not, adjust the shim placement until you have even amounts of space all the way around and the door seems to be evenly set. Immediately put a screw in the bottom door hinges. This will make sure you have the door hinges lined up in a manner that will allow the door to open and close correctly.
Another type of door hinge that is similar to a butt hinge is the butterfly hinge. It also has two flaps or leaves held together by a pin, but instead of being recessed into the door and frame, they are mounted on the outside and when opened have the appearance of a butterfly in flight. These door hinges are highly decorative ranging in style from colonial to art deco and are used only on flush doors, usually for cabinets. T-strap door hinges are more commonly seen on garage doors or boxes because they lift up rather than out. So named because they are shaped like the letter T, the horizontal part attaches to the frame and the vertical part to the door. These hinges can also be plain and functional or ornamental.
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.
