How are Butt Hinges located?

Steelcraft locates all butt hinges from the top of the door to the centerline of each hinge as standard practice:

  1. Locating hinges to the center line of the hinge keeps all hinge locations the same (at a given door height) regardless of hinge size.
  2. All variations in door height will vary the hinge locations accordingly.

If top or bottom of hinge locations are required:

  1. Special (non-standard) orders can be submitted but the distributor is responsible for coordinating any changes in hinge sizes.
  2. In this situation, doors and frames prepared for 5" hinges have a different location than 4 1/2" hinges. 

Industry Hinge Locations - Standard (SDI) versus Custom (NAAMM/HMMA):

  1. Standard (SDI) hinge locations are located based on the centerline of the hinge.
  2. Custom (NAAMM/HMMA) hinge locations are located based on the top or bottom of the hinge.
