Swinging Door Hardware
On this project I was tasked with installing a swinging butler door. It is a floor mounted hinge with spring tension that allows a door to swing in or out of a room and return to the closed position when let go. The door, shown above and below, separates the kitchen from the formal dining room.
Butler doors allow servers to carry items in and of a kitchen without turning a door handle or manually closing the door. To open the door, servers use kick plates at the bottom or push plates at handle height. The key component of hardwood and painted butler doors are double-action spring hinges that swing the door closed after it's opened in either direction. A butler door that's badly warped or split must be replaced.
