Today’s review focuses on heavy duty door hinges. But not your every day heavy duty door hinges. We’re talking true strength here –Gorilla– able to support up to 2,000 lbs!
And while many of our customers who use these hinges are indeed classified as detention centers or psychiatric facilities, the brute strength of the hinge makes it attractive to other organizations.
For example, the hinges are used for heavy lead-lined doors to x-ray rooms. Additionally, gate/fence installers regularly contact us, as the ultra heavy hinges can be used very effectively with heavy gates.
I like the fact that these triple weight steel hinges are made with a welded pin, making removal of the pin impossible. I also appreciate how they allow forced lubrication: a nice little extra feature that certainly could come in handy.
These hinges start at about $55, a bit more than your average hinge. But if you need the strength and dependability to support an extremely heavy door or gate, you won’t find a stronger hinge in this price range.
