The new line of plastic hinges that we are making includes not just butt hinges but plastic take-apart-hinges. These light weight, high value hinges would work well in an enclosure where the door may need to be removed for easy access or disassembly. The center pin is removable allowing the door to quickly come off when needed. As always we think about how to create a long lasting part for our customers. This is why we zinc plate the center pin to resist corrosion and improve the life of the hinge. Enven though these hinges can be taken apart they are very strong and can withstand up to 150lbs in a radial or axial load.

Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products is an ISO 9001 certified company meaning quality is always our top concern. We specialize in industrial hardware including hinge, latches and handles. We also can create custom hardware for your application. If you feel we can be of assistance please feel free to call us at (310)608-0693.

SPEP is releasing a brand new line of plastic hinges that will have application in many of the things we use every day. The first part of the line, are small butt hinges that are from 1” to 3” in length that have studs or threaded holes. These hinges have many advantages due to their construction; all of the hinges have a stainless steel pin to ensure that corrosion does not affect the hinge. This means that the plastic hinge will perform well in harsh environments like on a boat or outside exposed to the elements.  The plastic will obviously have no problem in a corrosive environment or one with high UV exposure as we have added UV stabilizers to prevent damage.  

These hinges have a variety of fastening options available as well. The studded hinges are great if easy assembly is needed because all that is required is the nut. We also have hinges that have a threaded hole if a long fastener needs to be used. While the hinges may look small they are mighty. The hinges can withstand loads between 100 and 250lbs. in a radial load or 100 to 150lbs. in axial load.

SPEP is a 100% ESOP, meaning that our employees own 100% of the company. This creates a unique view on quality from our employees. Everyone shares in the responsibility of getting a high quality product to the customer and we all have a stake in the success of the company.  We are also ISO 9000 certified meaning we meet and exceed international quality standards.

Electrical boxes need hardware just the same as any other product. This is why we have designed electrical cabinet hardware and electrical cabinet hinges. The reason that these electric cabinet hardware items are special is that they conform to industry standards such as NEMA and JIC. Our electrical cabinet hinges for example are slim and compact making them excellent for use in small crowded enclosures. The hole patterns also so conform to the industry standard so that assembly is much faster saving time that would otherwise be spent drilling holes.

At SPEP we take great pride in the quality of all of our products. This can be seen in our designs and manufacture of our products as well as our ISO 9001 certification.

Rotary Latches are the same latches that we all use in our car doors every day. When the door is closed a rod that is attached to the door comes in to contact with the latch and then the catch on the latch deflects to allow the rod through. Once the rod is inside the catch it can only be released through the use of the release mechanism. This simple and effective latch is seen everywhere from tool boxes to the sleeper cans on tractor trailers.  They are high quality latches that are not only secure but effective at keeping things closed.
