MATERIALS: H.A. Guden Co., Inc. recently announced the addition of new, stronger spring hinges to its extensive line of industrial hinges and hardware. Spring hinges are ideal for applications that require holding doors and lids in an open or closed position.
Guden’s new spring hinges provide higher spring tensions as a result of using both thicker and multiple springs. They are stocked in open widths of 1.5 inch, in three new lengths of 3.25 , 5.375 and 8.75 inch, and are spring loaded to open or close. The .060-inch thick leaves are also heavier, and offered in steel or stainless, with or without holes. All the new hinges are assembled with a .050- or .055-inch wire springs for more strength; the 5.375 and 8.75 inch versions are assembled with two springs to handle heavy-duty applications. Prototypes are available to qualified customers.
Guden’s full line now includes more than 40 spring hinges for either surface or concealed mounting, with or without holes, in sizes ranging from 1.25 to 8.75 inch lengths, They are available in plain steel and stainless steel, and in some cases stocked with a zinc finish.
