PINET 30mm aluminium hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

These new PINET 30mm aluminium hinges  are for use as pairs or together with a matching friction, detent or spring hinge to modify door opening characteristics. Construction is in clear or black anodized aluminium with robust plastic hinge pin to resist corrosion.

The matching soft-close hinge offers controlled closure in three configurations with two different torque damping settings, making them suitable for many types of enclosure, cabinet and cupboard from factory floor to domestic furniture.

 

PINET aluminium hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

The new FinAlu® lightweight range of PINET hinges which we launched recently provide light and tough service in applications such as medical equipment, electronic enclosures, food equipment, vehicle cabinets and other high-performing situations.

The team here at FDB Panel Fittings envisage these hinges being used on small boxes, enclosures and cabinets where good-looking industrial quality hinges are required for long-term service with light weight as a primary requirement.

The FinAlu® series feature stainless steel pins for longevity and smooth operation while weighing in at only 5, 9 or 15 grams for 38, 50 and 63.5mm (aircraft industry) sizes, with exceptionally thin section flaps of 1.3mm which open 270°.

Pinet soft-close aluminium hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

Soft-close is a feature much admired among operators of equipment covers and doors for making usage more comfortable, more user friendly and potentially safer.

Consequently, we are pleased to launch the new PINET dampening hinges in aluminium which offer a 115° soft-close in three configurations.

Two torque damping levels are available to suit both lightweight and heavier doors in a range of industrial and office/domestic applications.

These clear anodized hinges are robust and appropriate for a multitude of industrial applications while also discretely installed where a “low-key” presence is required.

When paired with a matching spring hinge than an automatic soft-close action is possible. A system which does not require a latching mechanism unless security calls for it.

Concealed PINET hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

These new PINET 7 axis multi-link hinges from our online store offer concealed and sprung door opening for overlay and nested doors. Their spring counterbalance allows for easy operation while the multi-link design ensures accurate and positive closure.

This new design hinge is fitted internally to the frame/door corner from where it offers a 110° door opening with positional hold in the open and closed modes by virtue of the sprung mechanism. This means that door latching is not necessary unless specifically required. Un-sprung variants will generally require latching and do not provide positive open/close hold.
