stainless steel hinges

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.

The specialist team at DIRAK have recently launched their new 180° stainless steel hinge for specialist cabinets where corrosion-resistance and robust service performance are defined requirements.

The new screw-on hinge in AISI 303 features integral M5 threads for internal screw fixing which both speeds up installation and enhances security.

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.

We are delighted that over many years we have accumulated a wide range of ex-stock stainless steel hinges to accommodate the many types of cabinet that may be demanded of  specialist builders for light industrial purposes – in offices or on a workshop or warehouse floor.

These range from weld on bullet hinges and simple lift off removable pin types to sophisticated parallelogram and friction torque designs.

Once highly expensive to specify (even made to order) stainless steel hinges are now much more commonly used for their robust reliability and corrosion resistance and are available ex-stock for urgent delivery from our Online store.

We recently launched new 125° opening hinges from PINET in stainless steel and aluminium construction for industrial/office/domestic enclosures, cabinets and cupboards where their parallel link design offers a comfortable feel. Available in 2 versions – 3639 with pins in 430 stainless steel and the 3640 variant with 304 Cu stainless pins.

Their 125° opening ensures easy access even with narrow door openings, thus allowing materials and equipment to be easily installed internally or removed for service or upgrades.

These hinges are designed for nested or surface-mounted doors either LH or RH and with horizontal or vertical orientation. The optimum opening angle of 125° is achieved with 2mm doors and reduces to 100° with 13mm thickness.
