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.
