If you're interested in installing a flush to wall door, you may have heard of butt hinges. The basic principle of butt hinges is simple, but effective. They have been used since the Roman times. Because of their simplicity, they have long been popular and preferred. You'll find that there are several different types available. Let's take a look at some of the most common types.
Butt hinges are often used for exterior doors. They have two leaves, one of which can move, while the other is fixed in place. These leaves are attached to a curled barrel and allow the door to open and close. Butt hinges are very sturdy and can support a large amount of weight. Because of this, they should be used for a steel or fiberglass door, as other types of hinges may be damaged by the extreme weight.
