Types of Hardware We Offer for Swinging Doors

Saloon door hinges — also called swinging door hinges — allow the door or doors to swing in both directions, automatically returning to the center of the opening. Different hinge names typically refer to how a door is closed.  In addition to their application in residential settings, saloon doors can also be found in various commercial environments, including offices and medical facilities.

In office automation equipment, double-acting hinges are often utilized, enabling doors to swing in both directions and automatically return to a closed position, promoting efficient workflow and space utilization. These hinges can also be utilized in medical equipment, allowing easy access to supplies and facilitating smooth movement between different areas. Furthermore, saloon doors can be enhanced with signage to provide clear directions or display important information, making them a versatile and practical choice in a wide range of settings.

Several specific examples of the hinges we offer include:

When it comes to finding the right door hinges near you, it's essential to consider your specific needs and preferences. Saloon doors, also known as swinging doors, can benefit from door closers hinges that provide controlled and smooth movement when opening and closing. Modern hinge options, such as bi-directional hinges, allow the doors to swing in both directions, offering flexibility and convenience. Closet door springs can be incorporated to ensure a gentle and secure closure, maintaining privacy while minimizing noise. Door hinge accessories like torque direction indicators or adjustment tools can assist in fine-tuning the functionality of the hinges to meet your requirements.

Double-Action Hinges

Double-action hinges allow the door to swing back and forth in both directions without turning the door knob. They usually come in a 90-degree spring-loaded hinge or double-action spring hinge design. These hinges allow doors to swing in both directions, making them ideal for spaces where people must pass through frequently.

Double-action hinges are a popular choice for commercial kitchens, restaurants and bars, where they provide easy access between rooms while keeping areas separated for hygiene or privacy. Whether for practical access or as a decorative element, double-action hinges and vintage swinging door hardware provide easy and stylish access between spaces. They are accessible, easy to install and offer a unique touch to any interior.

Countertop Hinges

Bar top hinges or counter flap hinges are a specific type of double action hinge designed to attach to the underside of a bar top or counter. These hinges allow a bar or counter flap to lift up and down, providing easy access to the area below. These hinges often include lift assist features that help prevent the door from slamming in busy commercial environments where customers frequently move through the space.

Gravity Hinges

Gravity hinges result in a slower, softer swing. They come in a variety of finishes and grades perfect for residential or commercial settings, including hotels, restaurants, cafés, bars, kitchens, master bedrooms and more. These non-adjustable hinges swing in both directions and offer hold-open capabilities. Gravity hinges still swing in both direction, and automatically return to center. 

Horizontal Pivot Hinges

Pivot hinges allow a door to swing on a vertical axis and are usually recessed into the door. These hinges use double-action operation to provide a soft swing in either direction, and a self-return to the center. They are available in a large variety of finishes and are great for residential or commercial applications.

Hidden Pivot Hinges

Hidden pivot hinges allow the doors to swing in either direction but do not offer the self-returning feature of double-action hinges. These hinges require additional recessing into the door and frame. Hidden pivots give an overall built-in look and are commonly used for hidden doors disguised as bookcases or cabinet fronts. The hardware allows the door to swing in one direction. 

Butt Hinges

Most traditional exterior doors are installed with butt hinges. These hinges are installed on one side of the doors in three locations. They are recessed on the door and are installed with a jamb and a doorstop to ensure the doors do not swing in the wrong direction.

Heavy-Duty Hinges

We recommend a heavy-duty hinge for all saloon-style doors over 42 inches tall. These hinges are best for applications with a heavier door or a door that is used often. Our spring hinges differ from the spring hinges you will find at Lowe’s and Home Depot because they are designed for the most demanding swinging-door applications.

Our spring barrels are a universal size, which allows for a stronger spring hinge and an overall better look for the hinges. The specs of our hardware are equivalent to Bommer 3029 hinges, resulting in reliable, efficient and long-lasting performance.

Gate Hardware

Double-action hinges work well for gate hinges. Our best double-action gate hardware is made from 304 stainless steel and rated for exterior use to resist rust in outdoor conditions. These double-action hinges can be used for all your interior and exterior swinging gate needs.

In addition to our extensive hinge selection, we supply an entire line of accessories for all your swinging door requirements, including latches, hand pulls, push plates and more.

Which Hinge Should You Choose for Your Saloon Doors?

Selecting the perfect hinge for your saloon door depends on your application and functionality. Our gravity double-action hardware allows for a hold-open feature, while spring hardware is adjustable but is a non-hold-open hinge. The gravity and spring hinges allow the doors to swing in both directions and self-return the door to the center.

Gravity hinges are preferred by most of our residential customers as a two-way hinge since they allow for the hold-open feature. Double action hinges require gaps between the door jamb and a small gap between double-swinging doors, so the doors can swing freely and not hit when swinging open or closed.

Our top-selling hinge is the Bommer 7512 commercial-grade gravity hinge. This hinge is the most preferred saloon door hinge because of its features, ease of installation and high quality. 

When considering double-action hinges, you will need to have the door specs to ensure the proper sizing of the hinges. The door specifications needed when determining the best double-action hinges are door thickness, individual door width and door weight. If you are considering full-height doors, you will also need to consider the overall door height vs. the total opening height.
