Shutter Hardware > Midweight shutter hinges & Pintles

While strap hinges where the first approach to hanging shutters and have been in continuous use since their inception, quite a few other hardware patterns are seen at various periods across the country. Also included are hinges of our own design, made to fit contemporary construction materials and situations.

These hinges are not of the same heavy material as our straps, but many historic examples of this hardware remain quite functional a hundred and fifty years after they were made. For the most part, we use at least the same weight of material as the originals. All of our midweight hardware has been designed specifically for shutter applications – many offerings reflect patterns common to a given historic period, all are “lift-off” hinges which allow the shutters to be lifted from the building for maintenance (and easy installation). We apply a high grade semi-gloss automotive finish to these hinges to insure their integrity when exposed to the weather.
