Hinges are the unsung heroes of every door system. They are the pivot point that allows doors to open and close smoothly, and they play a crucial role in maintaining the structural integrity of any entrance system. Selecting the right hinge for every door is essential to ensure that it can carry the door’s weight and prevent common problems such as rubbing against the floor or frame and difficulty in opening and closing.

At Matador Security, we offer a range of high-quality hinges to meet your needs. Let’s take a closer look at the different types of hinges and their applications:

Hinge Applications

Plain Bearing Hinges: 

These are the most standard hinges and are typically used for lightweight wood door applications for interior use.

Ball Bearing Offset Hung Hinges: 

These hinges are the most common in fireproof doors and heavy commercial grade wood doors. They are similar in appearance to pin and barrel type hinges, but they have ball bearings throughout the range to keep the door aligned over time.

Spring Loaded Hinges: 

These hinges are similar in shape, size, and capabilities to ball bearing hinges, but they have the added feature of a spring loaded inside the hinge to shut the door close.

Center Hung Pivot Hinges/Free Swing Pivot Hinges: 

These hinges are more commonly used in aluminum and glass door applications. They are installed concealed from the bottom and top portions of the door, allowing the door to pivot in its place with no hardware appearance.
