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.

Overall, they are nice hinges. My only problem is after 4 months of use some of them are starting to squeak.

Hingles worked beautifully and were the right color..only problem is there were no screws with them. Had trouble finding screws the same color, so I improvised and bought spray paint and painted the old screws..

My 6-year old home has Therma-Tru hinges with 1/4" radius corners on the jamb leaf of the hinge. I was disappointed that I had to purchase the new ones with 5/8" radius as that leaves exposed bare wood at the corners. The reason for replacement was that we wanted to replace all door hardware with oiled bronze finish. Otherwise these are first-class.

I thought I was purchasing exactly the size I needed to replace my existing brass hinge with this oil rubbed bronze hinge....not the right size....I considered trying to use it, than decided I better return the hinges....understandably, it was too late to return....so, I never used them, cannot return them, and will try to sell at my garage sale!

Excellent quality hinges that make my doors look brand new. I debated painting the existing hinges, but so glad I replaced them. My doors look like they were just installed yesterday. I couldn't be happier with the quality and finish. Ordering was easy. I ordered left and right, but could use either on either right or left hinge door. Thank you so very much. Will be ordering more for 2 more doors!!!!

Replaced brass Therma-Tru hinges on two entry doors with these satin nickel ones. Look great & fit perfectly. Direct Door replaced a pair that had a little rust on them without any problems & in a very swift fashion. Actually replaced all the brass hinges in our home with satin nickel replacement hinges purchased from Direct Door. Great company to do business with.

I couldn't be more pleased. The quality & appearance of the hinges was perfect. They were the desired duplicate of existing damaged hinge. I was surprised to receive two hinges, thinking I'd ordered only one ?? -- Therefore even the price was great.

Questions and Answers

Question Can I get the dimensions of each side and how far in from the edge the holes are?
Asked by: Judy Hannan - 4/11/2014
Question I would recommend looking here for the dimensions: http://www.directdoorhardware.com/assets/images/EZset/Hinges/rh48.pdf Answer provided by:  Jake Lott (4/17/2014)
Question While facing the exterior of the home,we currently have phg4" therma-tru hinges on the right side. The zig zag holes for the right hand hinge in the picture on your website do not match up with the holes of the hinges that were originally installed. It appears that a left hand hinge was swiveled around and used on the right side. We need to order (6) new hinges and I would like to be sure if we order left hand hinges that they will work on the right side. Please advise? Thank you.
Asked by: Dan - 5/5/2014
Question It sounds like that's correct. It has happened before where the wrong handed hinge was mounted to a door. That being said, it is possible to do that and have the door function properly. It looks like you'll need the left hand hinge and reverse it when mounting. Answer provided by:  Jake Lott (5/5/2014)
Question 1. What metal is the hinge made of? 2. What finish would best match flat black door hardware? 3. Can the hinges be painted? If so, should they be ordered with primer, and what type of paint should be used?
Asked by: Jeff Krasner - 5/8/2014
Question Jeff,

If you want the paint the hinges, yes i would order the primer set. These are made of steel. The closest to black is actually oil rubbed bronze. Black nickel is more of an antiqued nickel. Answer provided by:  Jake (5/12/2014)
Question It says these RH48 Therma-Tru hinges come in pairs - does that mean I need to order 2 to complete a single door? (e.g. that would get me 4 hinges?)
Asked by: Dan - 8/9/2014
Question Yes, they are sold as pairs which means two. So if you have a door with 4 hinges you will need to order two pairs.

Answer provided by:  Jake (8/10/2014)
Question What metal is the PHG 4" Therma-Tru Hinges With Self-Aligning Tabs made of? This question has already been asked but not answered.
Asked by: Carole Weatherford - 10/12/2014
Question These are steel hinges with a plated finish. Answer provided by:  Jake (10/14/2014)
Question on an rh48 hinge do they com as a set of 2 per order , or one . can i get 3 as a set ?
Asked by: Michael D'Orio - 10/22/2014
Question These are sold in pairs. If you need 3, you'll need to order 2 pair. Answer provided by:  Jake (10/22/2014)

Question How many are included for $10.33?
Asked by: Ah - 12/31/2014
Question They are sold as a pair. 2 hinges. Answer provided by:  Jake (7/27/2015)
Question how many hinges come per order. Description say 1 hinge. Or is it 1 set of three hinges?
Asked by: steve - 5/10/2015
Question These hinges are sold as pairs. For each qty 1 you enter in your cart there are two hinges. Answer provided by:  Josh (5/11/2015)
Question These seem to be like my current French door hinges. By reversible does that mean the same hinge can be used for either the left or right French door? I ordered 6 to replace the existing hinges but now I wonder if I needed left and right or if reversible will work for both doors?
Asked by: Linda - 7/23/2015
Question Yes, you can reverse the handing by installing one leaf on the door, popping out the pin and then taking the hinge back off the door and installing how you need it, then putting the pin back in. So yeah, if you have ordered RH you can switch to LH. Answer provided by:  Jake (7/27/2015)
