These are the most common type of hinges. They are often identified by the number of knuckles on the barrel - two, three and five knuckles are available. Five knuckle hinges are used most frequently. Other options can also be specified such as heavy weight, wide throw, swing clear, and more.
Continuous hinges extend the full height of the door which helps evenly distribute the weight of a door to the frame. This reduces the strain and wear to the door and frame. There are two types of continuous hinges: 'pin and barrel' and 'geared'.
Pivots are capable of carrying heavy loads because they transfer the weight of the door directly to the floor. They are also often selected for their aesthetically pleasing appearance. There can be offset pivots, center hung pivots, concealed pivots, and occasionally an intermediate pivot is specified to help carry additional door weight.
