During the COVID-19 pandemic, SELECT Hinges is here for our customers. Read our full statement

Ever watch a high school football team go through the school’s back door to reach the practice field? Those young players don’t care about the door, its hinges or hardware. All they care about is getting outside as fast as they can, punishing anything in their path.

Florida Building Code is one of the most rigorous in the U.S.

When Hurricane Andrew devastated Florida in August 1992, it did $23.4 billion of damage. As this Category 5 storm hit landfall, it had 1-minute sustained wind speeds as high as 165 mph and a gust as high as 174 mph. Andrew caused more structural damage and destruction than any other hurricane in Florida’s history and broke all insurance loss records.

You can find commercial doors installed in retail buildings, schools, hospitals, municipal, government and office buildings and manufacturing facilities. Typically, they are made with more durable materials than residential doors, including wood, steel, glass, fiberglass and aluminum and glass.

Which hinge is best for your door?

Do you need to replace a worn-out door hinge? Or are you writing hinge specs for the entryways in a new building or an addition? The easiest decision may be to go with the hinge design you are most familiar with, but that hinge may not be the one best suited for your entryway. It may cost you more money in maintenance, repairs and replacement. Here are some tips on what to consider before making your final hinge selection.
