A Quick Guide to Commercial Door Hinges

Every door needs a hinge and not every hinge is the best fit for every door. Understanding what types of commercial grade door hinges are available will help you pick the right one for the job. QualityDoor has a wide variety of hinges available for commercial constructions.

Which Type of Door Hinge is Best?

Choosing the right commercial door hinge can seem daunting with so many types available. There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting door hinges for your next commercial project such as the weight of the door and its intended use. You should also keep in mind things like security, how often the door will be used, and the amount of space available for hinges.


  • Durability

    Businesses with large, heavy-duty doors should look to use heavy-duty commercial hinges. These hinges are specifically designed to hold the weight of the door without failing as it opens and closes throughout the day.

  • Access Control

    Electrified door hinges are perfect for operations where doors should only be opened or closed at certain times. They’re also great for notifying security or other employees when a door is opened or closed.

  • Cost

    For lightweight doors that will not be opened and closed constantly during the day and where friction is not a factor, a simple plain bearing hinge is more than sufficient.

  • Noise Reduction

    Often used in residential construction, ball bearing hinges reduce friction and in turn noise. If you have a door that squeaks as it opens, switching to a ball bearing hinge might be a quick and easy solution.

  • Auto-close

    Doors that should never be left fully open accidentally should have spring hinges installed or another type of door closer. Examples of these doors include fire doors and, depending on your needs, entrance and exit doors to a business.

  • Clearance

    Businesses or residences with narrow doorways should use swing clear door hinges. These hinges clear the door itself from the doorway opening. They’re also ideal for helping wheelchairs or other devices clear a doorway.

  • Material

    Door hinges can be made from a variety of materials. Depending on the type of door hinge you need, they can be made from different materials such as brass or stainless steel. Hardened steel hinges are commonly used for heavier doors.

  • Finishes

    There are a number of finishes available for door hinges and certainly one that matches what your needs. Popular finishes include polished brass, satin brass, satin nickel, satin chrome, bright chrome, matte black, and oil rubbed bronze.

  • Style

    Hinges can come in a variety of styles such as a rounded radius corner hinge or a straight square corner hinge.

Frequently Asked Questions

Door hinges are typically installed 5”-7” from the top of the door and 10”-11” from the bottom of the door. If you need a third or fourth hinge, they should be installed at an even distance between the top and bottom hinge. Check the manufacturer’s instructions if you are unsure how to install your door hinge.

As a rule of thumb, you should place one door hinge for every 30” of door length. A door that is exactly 60” long will need two door hinges. A door that is 61”-90” should use three hinges evenly spaced out. If you fail to use the proper amount of hinges, the weight of the door will put stress on the doorframe and can eventually cause problems.

Most door hinges are reversible and can be used on either a left-hand or a right-hand door. However, there are certain hinges that are specifically built for one type of door or the other. Be sure to double check that you are purchasing the proper type of hinge for your door.

Non-removable pinge hins are typically installed on exterior doors where the hinge is accessible from the outside. As an added security measure, the pin in these hinges is non-removable. On a regular hinge, the pin can be removed and the door can be quickly taken off the hinges. Non-removable pins prevent people from quickly gaining access to your building from an external door.

The amount of wires needed is going to depend on the amount of electrified devices you are powering at that door. At QualityDoor, we carry 4-wire, 6-wire, 8-wire, and 12-wire electrified hinges. Be sure to consult with your electrician beforehand to decide which electrified hinge is right for your application.
