A hinge attached to the abutting surface of a door or cover.
The butt hinge is one of the most widely used hinges today. When you look at most commercial doors, you may see butt hinges that support the door. The length of these hinges is usually about 6 inches or less. They are installed for a variety of different applications and have multiple uses.
The butt hinge is composed of two hinge leaves. One is usually connected to a fixed component, such as a wall or door jamb, and the other is usually connected to a moving component, such as a door. These hinges are usually recessed or recessed on both surfaces. The pins hold the blades together and allow movement.
Most butt hinge pins are removable to allow removal of the door, but some are not removable for safety purposes. Check out our selection of movable pin butt hinges.
