Southco (www.southco.com) has come out with a hands-free way to keep open doors in place. Its new constant-torque friction hinge, developed in partnership with Reell Precision Manufacturing (www.reell.com), provides constant torque through a 270° range of motion. This single component avoids the need for separate door positioning devices. The hinge is available in two standard sizes with four constant-torque options each. Each hinge comes in two standard finish options: black powder coat or brushed zinc.
