Learn about our quality brass hinges and how to choose the right hinges for your home.
Benefits of Solid Brass
Door hinges made from solid brass are incredibly sturdy. Brass is a tensile metal, meaning it can bend. Brass is used in bearings, valves, and moving parts because it can flex but not break easily. Its flexibility and durability make brass the perfect material for sturdy hinges.
Brass has excellent corrosion resistance, making it unlikely to rust and last much longer. Brass has been used in household building materials for years. Brass hinges, fasteners, and door knobs significantly upgrade your home — not just in style but in function.
Hinge Type and ApplicationOur solid brass hinges are butt hinges. Butt hinges are excellent for sustaining weight, which works best for interior and exterior doors. Our hinges have a fixed pin, so the pin cannot be removed to disassemble the hinge. Fixed pins are more secure because the door can't be opened by simply removing the pin.
Many hinges are mortised, meaning they're inserted into a part of the door frame carved or cut out that allows the hinge to be mounted flush with the jamb. Before purchasing any hinges, it's best to investigate your current door jamb to find which hinge fits best.
Our hinges come in residential-grade and commercial-grade styles. Commercial-grade hinges have a thicker metal gauge — that works well for heavier doors. Residential door hinges work best on your home's interior doors because the metal gauge's thickness is thinner. The thinner metal allows the door to fit snugly in the jamb.
To help you better determine which hinges work best in your home, please reference the chart below.
When replacing existing hinges, pay attention to the size of the hinge, the corners, and the existing screw pattern. Our 3.5″ hinges have a three-hole arc screw pattern. The 4″ ones have a four-hole staggered screw pattern. The 4.5″ ones have a four-hole template screw pattern and are only available with square corners and heavy-duty weight.
Viaggio premium hinges have made an excellent addition to our luxury hardware line. All of our solid brass hinges come in various finishes — perfectly matching any home!
