Bullet hinges are typically made by using aluminum and steel alloys, brass, low carbon steel, zinc plated iron, regular iron, and stainless steel.

Bullet hinges are particularly created as two halves that users can directly weld them separately on their desired surfaces. As mentioned earlier, these halves are known as the female and male barrels. It is a major reason why bullet hinges are also known as barrel or weld on hinges. The barrel that consists of the pin is the male barrel while the barrel that doesn’t have any pin is known as the female barrel. Female barrels are weld on surfaces like doors. Male barrels on the other hand are weld on structural areas like door frames.
Since majority of the doors that utilize bullet hinges tend to be lift-off doors, the barrel without the pin must go on top. The reason behind it is that most lift off doors usually drop, this means that it is necessary for bottom barrels to have excellent load bearing qualities.
