Graphical Construction Glossary >> Doors. >> Door Hinges >> Industrial Hinges
Like most things in hardware there is a huge range in hinges. There are plenty of separate categories but there is so much overlap that I hesitate to even try to separate domestic from industrial. Manufacturers don't help much either as it is common to see items marked "industrial strength" etc. that are clearly not, and aimed squarely at a domestic DIY market.
The hinge above is definitely industrial strength. It is a face fixed Weld On Hinge to a large electrical sub-station. At the same time I have used identical hinges on some garden gates that I fixed a few years ago.
Another couple of heavy duty steel hinges, the type that are made up in a small fabrication shop out of available steel materials, steel pipe, flat plate and stock bolts and washers. Not sophisticated but doing the job of carrying a heavy gate or door.
Above we have some more hinges that are lift off and weld on. In this case they are made out of Stainless Steel and they would be seen in corrosive environments and also in places where food is prepared.
