A Tee Hinge, as the name suggests, has a T shaped configuration with a long horizontal plate that runs along the front a of door or gate and a vertical plate which is attached to the door frame or gate post. These two plates are joined by a central pin or rod allowing them to rotate in the same way as a butt hinge. The long plate of the Tee hinge provides strength and stability to the door or gate, helps with the even distribution of weight, and ensures a smooth swinging motion. The design of Tee hinges enables them to support a significant amount of weight making them ideal for use on heavy duty outside doors such as shed doors, garage doors and gates but they can also be used on internal cabinets and cupboards. Tee hinges are available in many decorative designs to achieve a classic rustic look.
