We all know what door hinges are, right? Those metal bits on the side of doors. However, did you know that if a door didn’t have hinges, you wouldn’t be able to use it? A door without hinges would be just a piece of wood, it would become useless. It’s actually incredible to think that such small pieces of hardware can have such a big impact.
Hinges are part of our day-to-day. Whether it is by helping operate doors, windows or other pieces of furniture around the house. If a piece of furniture opens and closes – you bet that it has some sort of hinges! Today, I’m going to be talking about a specific type of hinges, lift-off hinges.
What are lift-off hinges?
Ironmongery Experts, lift-off hinge supplier, explained that these types of hinges, also known as removable hinges or detachable hinges, are door hinges that allow doors to be easily removed by lifting them off the hinges.
When are lift-off hinges required?
This type of hinge is not required per se. However, lift-off hinges are essential to have in areas that might require emergency access. For instance, if someone in a closed public bathroom becomes unwell and isn’t able to open the door from the inside – they can be easily reached from the outside if the bathroom door has lift-off hinges.
Types of lift-off hinges
You might be looking for lift-off hinges for doors, including lift-off hinges for toilet doors and lift-off hinges for cabinet doors. Ironmongery Experts stock a wide range of lift-off hinges that vary in design, style and finish. This includes modern matte black lift-off hinges and more traditional antique brass lift-off hinges.
“The right ironmongery will not only complement a design but will uplift it and make it more visually interesting,” says Captain Bobcat. Who said that hinges couldn’t be decorative as much as they are functional? You might choose to go for only functional hinges or hinges that perfectly balance style and function to complement the rest of your home’s hardware.
Choosing the right piece of hardware goes beyond hinges, any and all ironmongery, should be given some thought in advance. Rice Cakes and Raisins believes that small details of ironmongery such as door handles, door hinges, door windows “can tie together your interior design and even enhance the look of your home.” And I couldn’t agree more!
