Piano hinges get their name from the fact that they are usually used on the entire length of a piano lid. This is because a piano hinge is made from very thin material. This is because the load that is bared by both the hinge and mounting material is distributed over a larger area. In applications where the hinge must be compact and as unobtrusive as possible piano hinges work extremely well. This is why these hinges are usually used on pianos regular doors and are also known as continuous hinges.
At Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products we have created a very large selection of continuous hinges to ensure that the perfect hinge is available for your application. Our hinges can be made from 316 Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Steel and Stainless Steel with material thicknesses from ranging .025" to .180".
