Hinges & Repairs

Ensure Your Door Opens When You Need It To

As with all things, age plays a critical role on the operationally efficiency of a doors hinges and the screws that hold them in place can give out, sometimes even pulling some of the wood or particle board with it. If this sounds like your door, you might need to talk with a Physical Security Specialist about placing a call to have the doors hinges repaired. In some cases it makes sense to replace the screws and put the original hinges back in place. In other cases, you might need to replace your hinges altogether. TFL can install any kind of hinge—piano/continuous hinges, concealed hinges, exposed hinges, spring-loaded hinges—for your aesthetic and structural needs.

The overall security of a door really hinges on… the hinges!

Door hinges not only keep the door properly settled into the door frame, but they effect the overall opening of the door and whether it closes(latches) properly. In fact, without a door hinge operating properly it is highly likely that your door is not closing at all and rendering your locking system completely useless. That is why it is important to inspect and repair the hinges when needed. The longer a hinge related issue goes unchecked, the longer the weight of the door is compromising the overall security of the door and will ultimately lead to issues with the frame and locking hardware. As the hinge loosens, the screws will pull away from the frame and put more pressure on the other hinges. This will also create tension on the locking hardware as it rubs against the frame and starts to impact the functionality of the lock.

While some might consider “bending” the hinges back in place, our Physical Security Specialists would never recommend this tactic. This is a temporary solution that should be avoided at all costs.
