Corner Shape

Heavy-Duty Hinges:

  • Built to handle substantial weight and high traffic. Commonly used in commercial and industrial settings where doors are larger, thicker, and subjected to constant use and abuse.
  • Constructed with durability in mind first. Often made from stronger materials, have reinforced components, and are designed to withstand the wear and tear of high-traffic environments.
  • Typically made from tougher materials like stainless steel or other alloys. Design focuses more on strength and durability than aesthetics.
  • Find applications in commercial and industrial settings, such as schools, hospitals, warehouses, and industrial facilities, where doors are larger, heavier, and experience frequent use.

Plain Bearing Hinges:

  • A simple and cost-effective design. Consist of a simple, unsealed, and non-friction-reducing pin that rotates within the hinge knuckles. Design does not incorporate any additional bearings or mechanisms to reduce friction.
  • Do not provide the same level of smooth operation and long-term durability as ball bearing hinges. More susceptible to wear and friction, which can lead to squeaking.
  • Generally suitable for doors with standard weight and usage. Often used in residential and light commercial applications.
  • May require more frequent maintenance, such as lubrication, to prevent wear and ensure smooth operation
