You will need a mechanical latch for that weight. Probably 2 or three slide bolts.
If the 1 x 6 is securely fastened to framing material the hinges you install will not be an issue. All you need are regular door type hinges. Maybe 4 sets of 2 1/2". Cabinet hinges have no advantage and might even be a liability.
