Hinges, for starters, allow two solid objects to move on limited angle. Basically, they are usually found on doors of homes and buildings of any given size. They are essential to any given structure. Why? How are you going to open or close a door that has no functioning hinges in it? In simpler terms, hinges allow us humans to open or close a door without having to forcefully push it or pull it. There are various kinds of hinges that have different capabilities and purposes. Among these kinds are the pivot hinge, the barrel hinge and, the case hinge which is usually found in briefcases. Of course, shower doors also need hinges. Fortunately, there are shower screen hinges that are readily available to be installed in bathrooms so that opening and closing shower screen will be at ease especially for aging people who already have difficulty in moving around.
