If you are looking for hinges or pivots for doors, speak to the LOCKSPERTS! Hinges are probably the single biggest, single cause of door or lock failures – because they can allow the door to drop from it’s original position causing mis-alignment of locks, strikers and other door hardware. Saving money on cheap hinges is a false economy.

Butt Hinges: These are the most common type used for timber and aluminium doors. The butts of these aluminium or brass hinges were formerly separated by steel, nylon or bronze washers.  The trend today is towards ball bearing hinges, usually made of stainless steel, which operate more smoothly and last much longer.  They are available in very durable PVD finishes which look like brass or chrome finish. We also offer MARINE quality stainless steel hinges and boat fittings.  View our Security Hinges offering extra protection.

 

Parliament Hinges: Parliament hinges are used when the door needs to stand further out or pass a door frame or other obstruction to open flat against a wall. They are usually made of brass, although stainless steel parliament hinges are becoming more common.

Projection Hinges: Projection Hinges serve the same function as parliament hinges, are less ornate and generally cost less because they take less time to manufacture.

Continuous Hinges: Continuous hinges are used for heavier applications and are available in long, continuous lengths, usually the full length of the door.  Available in aluminium, brass or stainless steel.

Flush Hinge: While not as strong as butt hinges, these do not require a recess to be cut and are mainly used on light-weight timber doors and light aluminium doors.
