Stainless Steel "Castle" Door Hinges

We made these very stout hinges for our friends at Williams Gate Works for a pair of giant garage doors they were commissioned to build. We quickly started calling them castle doors because of their shape and size. We made these hinges out of 304 stainless steel with a black patina and protective clear coat. The black patina gives the hinges the understated look of black steel or iron but with the rust resistance and additional stregth of stainless steel. 

Some of the black patinaed stainless hardware, all of the latches ride on custom black Delrin bushings.

Close up of the black patina on one of the hinges, the 1/2" x 3" stainless steel bar on the right was set into the wood doors and is not visible once the doors are installed.

The doors from inside the garage, Shannon at Williams Gate Works really knows how to make beautiful doors. The hinges pivot off center to allow the doors to open completely flat against the interior walls.

Here's the exterior of the Cedar doors with Shannon Williams standing in front of them to give a sense of just how large these doors are.
