What Are the Physics Behind A Stainless Steel Glass Door Hinge?

A stainless steel glass door hinges is a mechanical bearing that connects two solid objects, typically allowing only a limited angle of rotation between them. Two objects connected by an ideal hinge rotate relative to each other about a fixed axis of rotation: all other translations or rotations being prevented, and thus a stainless steel glass door hinge has one degree of freedom. Hinges may be made of flexible material or of moving components. In biology, many joints function as hinges like the elbow joint.


There are many different types of glass fitting hardware such as spring shower hinge, barrel hinge, decorative hinges, and pivot hinge. Spring hinge is a spring-loaded hinge made to provide assistance in the closing or the opening of the hinge leaves. A spring is a component of a hinge that applies force to secure a hinge closed or keep a hinge opening.

Barrel hinge is a sectional barrel secured by a pivot. A barrel is a component of a hinge that has a hollow cylinder shaped section where the rotational bearing force is applied to the pivot, and may also have a screw-shaped section for fastening and/or driving the pivot.


Pivot hinges are a pivot in openings in the floor and the top of the door frame. It is also referred to as a double-acting floor hinge. This type is found in ancient dry stone buildings and rarely in old wooden buildings. These are also called haar-hung doors. They are a low-cost alternative for use with lightweight doors.

Stainless steel glass door hinge usually has 3 components, which are pin, knuckle, and leaf. A pin is a rod that holds the leaves together, inside the knuckle. Knuckle is the hollow—typically circular—portion creating the joint of the hinge through which the pin is set. The knuckles of either leaf typically alternate and interlock with the pin passing through all of them. Leaf is the portions (typically two) that extend laterally from the knuckle and typically revolve around the pin.
