Rising and Falling Butt Hinges

Rising Butt Hinges are traditionally used when a thick floor covering such as carpet,tiles or uneven floor is a issue.These hinges are designed that when the door is opened it raises to clear the obstruction. Another benefit is that if the door needs to be removed they can simply lifted off without unscrewing if fitted correctly also they almost become self closing with gravity and the weight of the door causing them to close.

Falling Butt Hinges work on the opposite and a good example of use is on a toilet cubicles so the door opens when vacant.
