Enter the total door weight (lbs) and the number of hinges into the Hinge Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Hinge Weight.

## Hinge Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Hinge Weight.

HW = DW / H

Variables:

- HW is the Hinge Weight (lbs)
- DW is the total door weight (lbs)
- H is the number of hinges

To calculate the hinge weight, divide the total door weight by the number of hinges.

## How to Calculate Hinge Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Hinge Weight.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total door weight (lbs).
- The total door weight (lbs) is given as:: 300.

- Next, determine the number of hinges.
- The number of hinges is provided as: 3.

- Finally, calculate the Hinge Weight using the equation above:

HW = DW / #H

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

HW =300 / 3 = 100.00 (lbs)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total door weight (lbs) = 200

number of hinges = 4
