Ball Bearing Hinges
While door hinges do wear down over time, some naturally last longer than others. One of the most durable door hinge styles is the ball bearing hinge. They’re built for heavier and wider doors. The ball bearing is placed between two knuckles to reduce friction which wears down your hinges. Entry doors see the most traffic so it only makes sense that the hinges face the most friction.
Another benefit of ball bearing hinges is that they’re permanently lubricated. This allows the door to open and close easier and smoother – also helping reduce the amount of friction.
Pin - The rod that holds the leaves together, inside the knuckle.
Knuckle - 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. (aka. loop, joint, node or curl).
Leaf - The portions (typically two) that extend laterally from the knuckle and typically revolve around the pin.
