Customer service and product quality are two things that you can count on when dealing with Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products. We sell a wide variety of standard “off the self”  hinges ranging from 1” wide butt hinges to 96” long continuous hinges. While these hinges may work for many applications, some applications require a completely custom solution. This is why we have the ability to produce completely custom hinges that will help to make the hinge a perfect fit for your product.

Every aspect of the hinge can be customized including the material, leaf size, overall length, hole pattern, pin size, knuckle length and finish. Buying a custom hinge with a hole pattern already on the hinge can save many man hours when it comes time for the hinge to be assembled on to the product. The hinge can simply be bolted on the product without having to drill holes in house. This can help to save time and money in the assembly process.

If you currently but hinges for your product and modify them to fit your application please give our sales team a call at (310) 608-0693 to see if we can make a hinge for you.

This is Sierra Pacific’s unique “take” on an enclosure handle that has been in the industrial marketplace for decades.   Our handle’s mounting footprint is identical to those of its predecessors,  which makes upgrading to our handle a “no-brainer”  for the folks in your company’s engineering department. Especially if you want your product to stand out form the rest.

We feel our handle has a sleeker appearance when compared our competitors’ products, and  anyone who has gripped it will tell you it just feels better in your hand. An internal O-ring and escutcheon gasket make this handle a favorite in the electronic enclosure industry. For those of you who need to put 2 padlocks on one handle, our handle accommodates an optional bracket to facilitate that. Call Sierra Pacific today and get your hands on a  hand polished work of industrial art.

A BBQ manufacturer came to us for a custom latch solution to work with their existing product. At the time they made their own stainless steel L-handle. They knew they wanted a recessed plastic latch that would allow the door to be slammed shut. They had found a plastic latch from a large manufacturer of latches but it was $3.00 over budget. Sierra Pacfic worked closely with their engineers and design that met all the design requirements and was within the customers budget.  Maybe there is a latch  on your product  that does not perform exactly as you want it to.   Or perhaps you would like to “design some costs” out of an existing component.  Call Sierra Pacific to discuss the possibilities.

Custom Latch Solution

One of our specialties at SPEP is our ability to quickly and efficiently design and produce a completely custom piece of hardware for your product. Here is the story of one of the many custom latches we make. Our customer made waste water sampling products and would buy a semi-custom rubber component from one manufacturer,1 spring from a spring manufacturer, and 9 stainless steel components from a contract manufacturer.  After acquiring all of these subcomponents, our customer then assembled their latch in house. Sierra Pacific approached them with a turnkey solution. We now supply the latch “ready to mount” out of the box (see the photo below). The customer now has to keep track of one SKU as opposed to the previous 11 subcomponents. Not to mention saving labor for the assembly of the latch.

 

If you have current an idea for a custom piece of hardware or already assembling it yourself please call our talented sales team at (310) 608-0693. We are a 100% ESOP and ISO 9001 certified company.

For every task there is the right tool for the job. Many times that tool can be found as an off the shelf item but occasionally the right tool must be made just for that task. We at Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products are here to provide the tool you need for your product. If you look below you can see a rather unique continuous hinge we provided to a customer that makes rolling catalog cases. This hinge allows our customer to sew the hinge directly into the case creating a more durable and professional case. This hinge is a completely custom solution that we were able to develop for the customer.

Truck Body Latches

All work trucks need some way to hold all the equipment whether that be tools, supplies, or lunch. This is why we have created latches specifically design for truck bodies and cross body tool boxes. These latches mount flush to the mounting surface to reduce the chance of something snagging on the latch or becoming damaged by other objects in the truck. These latches can be used with a regular cam for small to medium sized boxes or used with a rod system for use on a cross body tool box. Non-lockable and lockable versions are also available to increase the security of your truck.

     Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products is introducing a brand new line of lashing rings. This line of 5 rings varies in strength from 4,000 lbs. to over 15,000 lbs. What makes these lashing rings special is they manner in which the ring is made. It is a forged ring meaning the material is pressed in to shape at high temperatures to create the desired shape. This creates a much stronger ring than using regular wire for the ring.  These lashing rings can be used in a variety of applications like being mounted to the bumper of trucks or for securing large objects during transportation.  These parts are great if you need a dependable lashing ring that will keep your objects secure.
