Hinges
Selections of the Proper Weight and Bearing Type
Standard Weight - Plain Bearing
Standard Weight - Ball Bearing, Concealed Bearing
Heavy Weight - Ball Bearing, Concealed Bearing
 
Considerations to Determine Weight and Bearing Type
  • Weight of Door
  • Frequency of use
  • Frame
  • Door Hardware

Always use ball bearing or concealed bearing hinges for doors with door closers and in all fire rated openings. Heavy weight doors and high frequency doors should use heavy weight ball bearing or concealed bearing hinges.

Guidelines for Hinge Material

  • Interior door or non-corrosive area use: Plated or painted Steel
  • Interior labeled door use: Plated or Painted Steel, Stainless Steel
  • Interior door in corrosive area use: Stainless Steel , Brass, Bronze
  • Exterior doors use: Stainless Steel, Brass, Bronze

NOTE: Standard pin material are: Brass Hinge – Steel Pin, Stainless Steel Hinge – Stainless Steel Pin, Steel Hinge – Steel Pin

Considerations to Determine Hinge Size
  • Door Width
  • Door Thickness
  • Weight
  • Clearance

Pivots
The door rests on the bottom pivot in this application. This reduces the stress on the frame by distributing the weight of the door throughout the floor and structure. By taking advantage of the strength of the structure, this makes a pivot the ideal solution for your heavy doors. Center and pocket pivots also provide an aesthetic option for your opening.

Continuous Hinges
Ives Continuous Hinges are designed to last the life of the building. The unique design distributes the weight of the door along the entire length of the frame, reducing the high amount of stress normally associated at top of door and frame on butt hinge applications. Not only does this reduce hinge failure, it also keeps your door in constant alignment, eliminating the chance of door sag. These characteristics make continuous hinges suitable for high use/high traffic doors.

The design of a continuous hinge eliminates the gap between the door and the frame. The absence of gap also helps prevents finger from being pinched, making it a safer device than traditional hinges. These these benefits result in higher efficiency and less maintenance, maximizing the value of your opening investment.

Continuous hinges are available in two styles; aluminum geared and pin and barrel in steel or stainless steel.

Aluminum Geared
Geared continuous hinges utilize a single gear section for the leaf and a separate gear section for the frame side of the door. The two are held in place together by a full length cover channel and rotate on a series of bearings.

Pin and Barrel
Pin and Barrel hinges share many of the same characteristics of a traditional hinge. Both have a center pin and rolled knuckles. However, a continuous Pin and Barrel hinge stretches along the entire length of the frame. IVES offers both stainless steel and primed steel to best match your specific application.
