What is a heavy duty hinge?


A heavy-duty hinge, as the name suggests, is a type of hinge that is designed to support heavy doors or gates. It is built to handle a higher load capacity and more frequent use than standard hinges. Heavy-duty hinges are commonly used in industrial applications where doors or gates need to be frequently opened and closed, but they can also be useful in residential settings where heavier doors or gates are required.

One type of heavy-duty hinge is the strap hinge. This hinge features one long, continuous strap that runs the entire length of the door. These hinges are commonly used on large gates or barn doors because they distribute the weight of the door evenly, making it easier to open and close. Strap hinges are also popular because they can be easily adjusted and tightened. 

Another type of heavy-duty hinge is the ball-bearing hinge. This hinge is designed with multiple ball bearings between the two hinge leaves. The bearings allow for smoother operation and reduce friction, making it easier to open and close heavy doors. Ball-bearing hinges are commonly used on entry doors, screen doors and garage doors. 

There are also heavy-duty hinges that are specifically designed for fire doors. Fire door hinges are typically constructed from high-strength steel and feature a fire-resistant coating. These hinges are designed to withstand high temperatures and help keep fire doors secure in the event of a fire.
