Butt Hinges 


Description: Also known as a mortice hinge, butt hinges are a bearing which connects two pieces of material together and allows for rotation between them. Given the make up of these hinges, a rebate, or mortice, is required when fitting them. 


Available in: Brass and Steel 

              Various sizes from 25mm - 150mm


Ideal for: These types of hinges are most commonly used for hanging doors. Perfect for heavier doors given their load bearing quality. 

Flush Hinge 


Description: These hinges preform the same task as butt hinges, yet given their composition they do not require a rebate prior to fitting.  


Available in: Brass and Steel 

              Various sizes from 25mm - 150mm


Ideal for: Flush hinges are not as robust and hard wearing as butt hinges, but they are still ideal for hanging lightweight doors and for hinging a box.
