A hinge by any other name is not quite what one may expect – as it turns out. We are delighted that our online shop now includes a selection of spring hinges, friction hinges and torque hinges for the many and extensive specialist enclosures and panels used in industrial and office furniture applications.

Spring hinges in aluminium provide spring return with a stainless steel spring and an anodised finish in clear or black, while friction hinges offer an adjustable resistance which retains the door or panel in the desired position – friction is adjustable by hex key. Raw aluminium, clear or black anodised finishes are offered, along with screw or stud fixing.

Alternatively, stainless steel torque hinges offer a robust corrosion resistant solution to holding a lid or door in the desired position.
