Shutter Hinges

Shutters are one of the most important components of the house. In addition to acting as an exterior architectural accent that accentuates the windows, they also protect against external elements such as heavy rain, storm, hailstorms and provide shade from the sun. However, they aren't functional without shutter hinges that allow them to be mobile and perform their purpose.

If you are searching for the best selections of shutter hinges, look no further than Hinge Outlet, Inc., where we stock them in various measurements, designs, and styles to help you find the perfect type. We're committed to helping you find the one that will work perfectly with your shutters to provide your windows the protection they require.

What are Shutter Hinges?

Shutter hinges consist of two separate parts that work. First, the hinge's pivot leaf is connected to the wall of the house or building to create a stationary axis point that allows the mobile leaf attached to the shutter exterior panes to move around in a 180-degree axis. However, what gives the mobile leaf its rotating and mobile function is the pivot leaf pintle.

In general, shutter hinges come in two main types – surface mount hinges that are fitted to the front or back of the shutters and the face of the window frame, and mortise hinges that are used with composite or exterior shutter (usually wood) that fits the inside of the window opening.

Popular Types of Shutter Hinges

  • Horizontal Strap Shutter Hinges:These are the most common shutter hinges used in the United States. They consist of a narrow band where its surface is screwed onto the shutter's top or bottom and pintle attached to the front casing.
  • Vertical Strap Shutter Hinges: This style is used when the divider rail and a third center hinge are needed to support the shutter. Overall, they are less popular than the other styles.
  • L-Shaped Shutter Hinges: Also known as the New-York style hinge. This is a modified take on the horizontal strap shutter hinges and is usually preferred for narrow shutters to enhance the mounting location of the pintle.
  • Clarks Tips Shutter Hinges: This style comprises one leaf attached to the external surface of the shutter casing and another to the front of the shutter panel. They are usually positioned adjacently.

How to Choose the Right Shutter Hinges for Your Project

You have to make many considerations when selecting the right type of hinges for your shutter. Besides considering your requirements, preferences, and needs, you will have to consider the architectural and technical aspects. These will depend on the siding around the window, the presence of molding, the type of shutters used, and how deep they will be positioned in the window. Additionally, you will have to consider where the pintle will be located and the overall thickness of the shutter, which could affect the hinge placement. More importantly, you will have to ensure there is allowance between the shutter and the window as you will have to use other hardware such as a pull ring or slide bolt. In most cases, if you are attaching to a non-flat surface, a brick, jamb, or lag pintle is ideal
