All About Residential Door Hinges  

There are many types of door hinges available for different applications on residential doors. This guide and the charts at right are intended to help you select the appropriate hinges for your door and is stated as suggestion only.
The best way to replace existing hinges is to buy the same size and quantity of hinges you already have on your door. Below are a few things to consider before buying hinges for a new door or replacing old hinges.

Hinge Material
Door hinges are generally made in three types of material. The most commonly used is steel. Steel Hinges are very strong and inexpensive. They are usually plated with other materials (brass, nickel, bronze), and are available in many finish options. Solid Brass Hinges are also strong but will not rust or corrode as steel will over time. Solid brass hinges have the most beautiful appearance and can outlast steel plated hinges by many years. Stainless Steel Hinges are stronger than steel and are resistant to rusting and are available in a brushed or polished stainless finish.

Hinge Bearing Types

Many door hinges for standard applications are plain bearing hinges, meaning that the hinge knuckles bear on each other. Plain bearing hinges are less expensive and work great for lighter or limited use doors. Hinges do wear out over time especially on high-use doors and heavy or wide doors such as an entry door. An upgrade to the plain bearing hinge is the Ball Bearing Hinge which has small ball bearings between the hinge knuckles to reduce friction. Ball bearing hinges increase the life of the hinge, tend to be quieter, and make the door easier to open.
Door Thickness Hinge Size
   
1-3/8" 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" Hinges
1-3/4" 4" x 4" Hinges
2" 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" Hinges
2-1/4" to 2-3/4" 5" x 5" Hinges
over 2-3/4" 6" x 6"

 

Door Height Number of Hinges
   
Up to 60" 2 Hinges
60" to 80" 3 Hinges
80" to 97" 4 Hinges
97" to 109" 5 Hinges
Over 109" 6 Hinges

Heavy Duty Hinges
Hinges are sometimes catagorized as standard or residential duty hinges and heavy duty hinges. The difference between a standard duty hinge and a heavy duty hinge is the thickness of the plate material the hinge is made of. Heavy duty hinges can be used for doors that are heavier or wider. Ball bearing hinges are an upgrade from heavy duty hinges and are also constructed of thicker material.

Door Hinge Corners
There are three styles of door hinge corners. Square, 1/4" radius corner, and 5/8" radius corner. For a good fit, make sure you get the right hinge corner style for your door. You can use some spare change to determine the radius on your hinges. The 1/4" radius is close to the size of a dime if you hold it up to the corner of the hinge. A 5/8" radius is close to the size of a quarter. On wood doors you can always "square" the corners on your door and jamb with a sharp chisel.
Some hinges are square on one leaf and rounded on the other. This hinge is frequently used for steel or fiberglass doors hung on a wood jamb. These hinges are available in several finishes and they are handed so you'll want to make sure you order accordingly.

Spring Loaded Door Hinges

Spring Door Hinges are used to create a self closing door. Some areas require a fire door between a garage and living area to be self closing. These hinges are heavy duty steel hinges and are available in many finishes. You can adjust the tension on the spring for door size and weight. Most exterior doors will require two spring hinges to close properly.

Non-removable Hinge Pin (NRP)
Non-removable pins are used on the hinges of outswinging doors to prevent intruders from tapping out the hinge pins and pulling the door off it's hinges. The hinge pin will have a groove in it which is locked in place by a set screw. The set screw is positioned so that it can only be accessed when the door is opened. Any of our Emtek Hinges (except Emtek spring hinges) can be ordered with non-removable pins.
Hinge Accessories
We have many hinge accessories available to create your own custom look including hinge pin ball tips, steeple tips, and hinge pin door stops.

New door hinges
The door hinges replaced the existing door hinges and the hole pattern matched perfectly. I have a very easy experience shopping for the hinges on your website, I just entered the door part number and the hinges were displayed. Just one suggestion: Ask the customer if they require Machined screws, or Wood screws. In my case,the old hinges I replaced were held on the door with machined screws. Thanks, Dave

Mr.
The polished door knocker was exactly as advertised and needed. It fit perfectly without having to drill new holes in steel door.

Fantastic! Always have problems replacing hinges as the holes never match. I didn't want to drill new holes in a steel door and after trying to order through Lowes, the Lowes employee turned me on to this site. I have Benchmark doors and they are no longer made. Lowes sells Benchmark doors by another company (really confusing). The ordering was easy. The hinges arrived in a timely manner. Swapping them out was so easy. A perfect match. Next I will search for some Stanley hinges with hopefully the same success. Thanks.

Very Satisfied
As like most people my age, I am a little reluctant to shop online for certain things. Unable to find these hinges in a store, I read the reviews of the online companies that supply them. I was very satisfied with the product supplied by DirectDoorHardware. The ordering process was simple, and the delivery was prompt. The hinges complement the new lockset I installed, and just add that last finishing touch to the newly renovated living room. Another retirement project completed. Will shop here again when the need arises.

Questions and Answers

Question what is the center offset of the screw holes on your 4 inch hinges item #BH45? I have an older door that needs the holes 3/4" offset. Seems to me that all the newer hinges are 3/8" offset. thanks Mike 626-712-7238

Question Here is a link to the Benchmark hinge's template: http://www.directdoorhardware.com/assets/images/EZset/Hinges/BH45.pdf Answer provided by:  Jake Lott (3/27/2014)
Question My hinge has a 1" vertical spacing between holes and 5/8" horizontal spacing. The 5/8" seems to be my problem in finding a replacement. All my spacing so given are hole center to hole center. They are 5/8 radius corners, 4", non removable pins on a double wide out swing steel door. Do you have a hinge for me?
Asked by: Lou - 5/1/2014
Question Unfortunately, our hinges have just slightly over 5/8" horizontal spacing. Answer provided by:  Jake Lott (5/5/2014)
Question I need a total of 3 hinges so if they are only sold in pairs than I would order a quantity of 2 and have one left over. So the total for 4 hinges would be about $20, is this correct?
Asked by: Eric - 6/13/2015
Question Yes, sold in pairs. Two hinges per pair. Answer provided by:  Jake (6/15/2015)
Question Are these hinges brass plated or solid brass? We are looking for a solid brass hinge for a pool area that is 4 inch by 4 inch mortise type with a 5/8 radius.
Asked by: Tim T - 8/4/2015
Question These are made of plated steel. Solid brass hinges are considerably more expensive. The can be found here:

Question I need 4 inch hinges in white for an exterior door with 5/8 corners. would this one be the right choice?
Asked by: Sally - 1/23/2016
Question It could possibly be the right hinge. I would recommend looking at the RH45 also (directdoorhardware.com/phg-residential-plain-bearing-hinge-rh45.htm) Be sure to look at the measurements tab on both of these and make sure you get the right bolt pattern spacing for your door.
