Herein, how do you size a hinge?
Hinge Size Calculation The width of the door is important, because it affects the weight of the door. A wider door will need more load-bearing support for stability. For example, if the door is 1-3/8 inches thick and the width is no more than 32 inches, the hinge height is 3-1/2 inches.
Subsequently, question is, are ball bearing hinges better? In general, the ball bearing hinges are higher quality and prevent squeaking of the hinges better than the plain bearing hinges. Hinge Outlet carries both, but we recommend the ball bearing hinges for most residential applications.
One may also ask, what size tee hinges should I use?
A rule of thumb for most gate hinges (Tee hinges excepted) is that the hinge length should be one third of the width of the gate or door it is fitted to for normal domestic use; so a 900mm (3ft wide or therabouts) wide gate would be fine with a 300mm (12″) hinge.
How do I measure door hinge radius?
A hinge with a 5/8” radius will measure 5/8” from the top of the hinge to the bottom of the radius, while a ¼” hinge will measure ¼” from the top of the hinge to the end of the radius.
