Hinges are types of bearing that connect two objects that allow an angle of rotation, commonly found in doors, cupboards and windows. There are many types of hinges, some are more general purpose while others are fairly specialized. Butt hinges are among the most common and most useful in the home. Usually made from steel or brass but sometimes chrome and stainless steel, butt hinges are mortised in between the door and the door frame. Butt hinges tend to come in packs of two or three.
Flush hinges are a slight variation on a normal hinge in that they are used when you want to conceal every part of the hinge except the barrel, flush hinges are able to open and close into themselves and don't require the door or frame to be cut to allow the hinge to be fitted. Flush hinges are therefore ideal for wardrobes or cabinet doors. We also sell concealed hinges which are great for kitchen cupboards, concealed hinges make use of an arm to join the door and the unit instead of a barrell.
