Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Hinges

Folks often look for stainless steel fence gate hinges because they live in a coastal location. The types of hinges used on gates are butt hinges (what you think of as a ‘normal’ door hinge), strap hinges, and self-closing hinges.

There are different grades of stainless steel, each offering different benefits to the manufacturer and end-user. With architectural hardware, grade 304 and 316 are the two most common types. Type 304 is the most widely used. It offers good weather resistance for exterior application when powder coated. For exterior applications where the hinges will be fully exposed to the elements and will not be powder coated, Marine Grade 316 stainless steel offers the best rust resistance [If you’re interested in the nitty gritty details of stainless steel grades, read this Wikipedia entry. More than you ever wanted to learn!]

Stainless Steel Butt Hinges


tip-how many hinges on a gateButt hinges are the most popular gate hinge that we sell. Installation is straightforward and the hinges can support most standard sized gates. These stainless steel butt hinges are appropriate for standard-sized gates up to 42” wide x 72” high, up to 2-1/4” thick (in the columns below you’ll see the weight recommendation for each set of hinges).
For wider or thicker gates, we’d love to discuss hinge options with you. A set of three of the Heavy Duty 5” x 5” hinges might do trick, but to take into consideration all the variables, a conversation is the safest bet. When choosing hinges, always err on the conservative side. Usually, bigger gates use strap hinges because of their ability to hold more weight.

Stainless Steel Self-Closing Spring Hinges

 

Self-closing hinges are used where you want a gate to close on its own. Self-closing hinges are spring loaded. The springs are adjustable with a small Allen wrench—the adjustment determines a lighter or heavier closing. The sweet spot in spring tension is to have the gate close without slamming. This will add to the life of the hinges, the gate, and the latch.

For pool gate installations, building codes generally require self-closing hinges to keep little ones safe (check with your building department to confirm the rules for your location).

For standard sized gates, you need three spring hinges. If it’s a short gate, you can use a pair. Adjusting the spring tension will help you get just the right amount of swing. Heavy (150+ lbs) or wide (over 48″) gates can be a challenge to close when using self-closing butt-style hinges. You might need to look into an external spring that is attached on one end to the gate and the other end on the post.

Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Strap Hinges

 

how to choose decorative exterior strap hinges Strap hinges come in handy when a gate is very wide, tall, or heavy. On standard sized gates, they’re often used for the architectural styling they offer. We offer stainless strap hinges made from 304 stainless (with black powder coating) and from 316 Marine Grade stainless with a brushed finish. Many of the options below use a lag pintle for installation. The beauty of the lag pintle is that it allows for adjustment, which can come in handy with wood gates and posts that shift and move during seasonal weather changes.
