HARDWARE

At Real Carriage Door Company we build our doors using hand craftsmanship and real wood. Our doors are like nothing else out there, in keeping, the hardware we pair with our doors must be of the highest quality. Bommer Industries, Richards Wilcox, Ashley Norton, Rocky Mountain Hardware, Deltana, and Centor are companies we have worked with for many years that meet our needs and quality standards. Their craftsmanship, performance, and beauty complement our doors at the highest level our customers come to expect .

We invite you to browse their selection and work with our designers to incorporate the items you fancy into your door design. **

** At this time, individual heavy duty swinging door hardware items may be ordered with the purchase of a custom carriage door only i.e. hinges, locksets, bolt, etc.

Choosing the right types of door hinges for your Real Carriage Doors starts by identifying a few details:

  • What is the weight of the door?
  • What is the width of the door?
  • What is the thickness of the door?
  • What is the height of the door?

BUTT HINGES (AKA MORTISE HINGE)

Two leaf plates anchored to the edge of the door and the other into the door jamb. The plates come together the leaf plates are hidden and, when closed, the only thing visible is the barrel.

STRAP HINGES

Strap hinges are required for large heavy doors and otherwise desirable for a historical
character and interest. Back plates are used to distribute the force of the fasteners over
a larger surface which prevents damage to the door.

‘Half’ surface indicates that one leaf mounts into the jamb and the long strap mounts across the face of the door.
