Hinges

Pinet stainless steel friction hinges from FDB Panel Fittings

The humble hinge is constantly being developed and upgraded to ensure that specialist enclosure or cabinet makers have the right component whatever the application. A good example is the new Pinet range  – in this case their new dual-function 301 Stainless Steel torque/friction variants to help regulate door opening/closing with a torque or friction function.

These 85mm long hinges feature constant torque/friction with temperature stable characteristics in a “gull wing” design which raises the pivot for easier operation. Fixing is by 6.3mm pre-drilled holes, with hinge pins sealed by polyethylene caps.

 

New spring hinge, new features for ease of operation from Pinet via FDB Panel Fittings

Even the simple and popular rolled knuckle spring hinge now comes with dual-function spring opening assistance, courtesy of the Pinet/FDB Panel Fittings sales partnership. These aluminium hinges in discrete “piano-style” are suitable for industrial applications from workshop to office.

They feature integral spring support which balances the weight for easier operation. Two different force loadings are available to accommodate different door sizes. Drilled and undrilled mounting leaves are offered to enable flexibility of installation.

New Vandal-resistant 180° stainless steel hinge from FDB Panel Fittings

We are delighted to have recently launched a new DIRAK stainless steel hinge which offers increased protection against unauthorised access due to its specific design and construction. This especially robust 180° hinge with interlocking leaves features welded-in-place, non-removable hinge pins and welded mounting studs which are not accessible from the outside of the cabinet – so providing greater security when used in outdoor/public areas, e.g. for communications or public services.

The surface mounting style of these hinges ensures they are suitable for nested doors in side-by-side situations. They are available in sizes of 40×42, 50×50 and 60×63 mm with polished finish.

Designed to fit industry standard 20mm surface-mounted door returns, this lift-off hinge will open to 180° for adjacent cabinets and 270° for single installations.
