Benefits and Applications of Heavy Duty Hinges

A successful door, gate, or window application depends of the right type and size of hinge used. Our hinge models range in size from a 1,000LB door to a 40,000LB door in carbon steel or stainless steel in grades of 304L or 316L.

Practical Hinge Benefits

Since most of our customers are from industrial sectors, our hinges are designed for years of maintenance free service with repeated daily use.

  • Heavy duty hinges provide uniform load stress to a door. This reduces wear and tear, as well as door and frame sagging.

Load Bear Hinges

  • Constructed with needle bearings and a thrust bearing allow very heavy doors or gates to be moved surprisingly easy.
  • Our hinges are constructed from either carbon steel or 304L or 316L stainless steel.
  • 304L or 316L stainless steel is resistant to oxidation, chemical corrosion and other industrial elements.
  • For installation, heavy duty hinges can either be designed with mounting holes, or can be welded directly onto the frame.

Application of heavy duty hinges

  • The hinge pin is constructed from alloy steel which is heat treated and precision ground.
  • All of our hinges use an oil seal to keep grease in and contamination out for trouble free service.
