Hinges & door weight

I made some doors for a garden shed (trying to be creative) but they are quite heavy. Most hinges in the "hardware stores" like Home depot, indicate they are for light doors. What is considered light or heavy? What are good hinges for my doors? They are 24" x 76" and weigh about 40 lbs each.

Might want to move into the commercial range. Lowes carries a commercial grade hinge. I have hung 60+ lb using them will no issues.
