Spring (Saloon) Door Hinges

Spring-Loaded Self-Closing Doors

Saloon door hinges are one of the most “fun” types of architectural door hinges. People seem to enjoy pushing a door open and then having it close by itself. It’s a way of adding stimulation to the experience of a place. These hinges are a great hinge choice in situations where they make practical sense.

Of course, they’re not just fun: They are also an extremely useful type of hinge, allowing people to move through a door quickly without having to stop to close it, and minimizing or even eliminating the need for people to use their hands to open the door.

Single Action Spring Hinges

With a single-action spring hinge, a saloon door only opens in one direction. This is how swinging doors most commonly work.

This type of spring door hinge is suitable for any circumstance where you want the door to be self-closing and to only open in one direction. Some examples of uses cases for this self-closing door hardware include:

  • Apartment building doors
  • Fire doors
  • Restaurant doors
  • Office doors

Single-action springs make for self-closing doors that provide both convenience and security. In workplaces, there is also an efficiency benefit. In each case, users will not have to hang around to make sure the door fully closes. Indeed, they won’t even have to think about it at all. The door takes care of itself.

Double Action Spring Hinges

Also known as “two-way spring hinges,” “double acting hinges,” or “saloon door hinges,” a double-action spring hinge allows a door to open in either direction and then self-close.

Two-way spring hinges allow for unpowered doors that do not require the manipulation of a handle by the user. This kind of double-action spring door hinge is commonly used in places such as:

  • Residential and commercial kitchens
  • Hospitals and clinics
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Hotels and spas
  • Community centers

When it comes to double-action self-closing doors, the purpose of the self-closing door hardware is not security but convenience, utility, and efficiency—both for individual users in terms of not having to think about operating the saloon door and for large groups of users in terms of maximizing traffic throughput while still maintaining a door.
