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. This certification shows our commitment to quality is a step above and is always on our mind.  We are also a 100% ESOP company, so our company name doesn’t just stand behind our product, we do too.

The NEMA standard is an electronics standard that creates standards for electronic enclosures and a whole host of other electronic related specifications. We make many items that conform to NEMA standards so that customers can ensure that their enclosure is completely within the NEMA specification for their application.  Our line of NEMA SS latches will resist corrosion no matter how corrosive the environment may be.

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.

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.

Aluminum is a light weight, durable, and corrosive resistant material. For this reason it is used heavily in the aerospace industry. However it has found its way into nearly every industry as well and now we have begun making aluminum handles or aluminium handles for the electronic enclosure and home improvement industry. Not only do aluminium handles have all the same properties of regular aluminum parts that make them great for high end applications they do not rust even in the worst conditions. The finish therefore is longer lasting standing up to the dirt and oil that is regularly deposited on to all handles through regular use. If you feel an aluminum handle is the right solution for your , please feel free to give us a call to purchase one of our parts or to create your own custom aluminum handle.

 Heavy duty strap hinges are large hinges are made from large thick pieces of flat steel. The large flat pieces of steel are bent around the pin to make the “strap” and then another piece of material is bent around the very ends of the pin to form the base.  Due to their construction a heavy duty strap hinge can withstand large loads making them ideal for the trailer and bus industry. We make heavy duty strap hinges from steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Both the stainless steel and aluminum hinges are designed for use in moist conditions as they both resist corrosion extremely well.

A continuous piano hinge is a hinge where the knuckles run the entire length of the hinge. This helps to distribute load that hinge experiences along the entire length of the pin. This means less resistance to rotation and less ware compared to using multiple hinges. A single piano hinge also helps to reduce the cost because multiple hinges will not need to be purchased. Also the installation time is for a hinge is decreased because only one hinge needs to be aligned and installed. The continuous hinges also have an advantage of being very slim this helps to conceal the hinge itself.

A butt hinge is a basic hinge that will have between 4 and 8 knuckles and made usually of steel or stainless steel. A common butt hinge that we use every day is the hinges that support almost all doors. All of the butt hinges we produce except for our plastic hinges can be welded creating a weld-on butt hinge. This ability is excellent when high strength is needed between the mounting surface and the hinge. Fasteners are strong but they can be removed while a welded hinge is far more permanent. In the event that a tampering resistance is needed a welded hinge is far more secure than a hinge that is bolted. We make our weld-on butt hinges from steel, stainless steel, aluminum and 316 stainless steel.

Sheet metal latches are latches that are designed to be used on sheet metal that is used for electronic enclosures. This is why we have developed our latches to preform to the strict guidelines of the NEMA and JIC standards. The standards create a unified way to enclose electronics and stop the elements from harming the components. These latches are specifically designed to mount to sheet metal with either rivets or fasteners. If a NEMA approved latch is used with an electronic enclosure you can be assured that the latch will continually preform in all conditions for a number of years.  These latches come in many finish and materials to best suit your application.

A spring loaded latch is a latch that uses a spring to actuate the bolt of the latch. This helps to return the bolt to a default position when not in use. This is usually in the closed position, take for example a bolt latch. When the latch is not in use the bolt is pushed forward engaging the keeper until someone opens it. The bolt is then pushed back against the spring removing the bolt from the keeper. The bolt can then be let go when the door is closed again to secure the door.

An eyebolt is basically a bolt with a large loop attached to the thread instead of a hex head like a normal bolt. The large loop is called the “eye” and is used to run rope through or attach various items too. We have made many different forms of eye bolts but our longest lasting bolts are our stainless steel eyebolts. Due to the characteristics of stainless steel, they will not rust in even the worst conditions. The capability is excellent in a tie down because with the use of an eye bolt there is usually rubbing that would eventually wear off a traditional coating. And if standard steel is used the rubbing will increase the rate of corrosion as the rust will constantly be removed.

Stainless steel is a steel that has unique properties that make it ideal for many applications. Many manufacturers produce items that are labeled stainless steel but there are many different grades of the metal. We make some parts in 316 stainless steel which means the stainless steel is of a higher quality and will resists even the harshest conditions for years and years. Our 316 stainless steel industrial hardware will outperform any standard stainless steel when it comes to longevity and appearance quality. This is due to the higher chromium content than standard stainless steels that creates a tough barrier to oxidation and staining.  If you want your industrial hardware to last a life time 316 stainless steel is your best option.

Weldable hinges are designed to be permanently fastened to the mounting surface by welding it. Theses hinges are designed to be used in regular consumer applications as well as commercial applications. Our weldable barrel hinges include weld guides which help to provide a lip where the weld bead will go. A weldable hinge must have some vital characteristics that make them suitable for operations such as welding. First the part must have a surface that will easily attach to another surface. Flat surfaces like the tabs on the barrel hinges are an example of this. The material must also be easily welded which is why we use common steel that have great weldability.

Our high quality weldable hinges will perform in ever application and exceed your expectations.  SPEP is a high quality manufacturer of thousands of industrial hardware products. We also specialize in manufacturing custom products so if you feel we can make custom products for you please let us know.
