When it comes to access hardware components for your products or industrial components, there's no room for a failure due to quality – and at Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products, we've made our mark on the industry through our strict quality standards. As an ISO 9001 certified company, we strive to maintain a gold standard in customer service and work with our customers to get them the exact product they need. We offer a wide range of products in our 4,000-item catalog, and if you're looking for friction hinges, we can help.
Friction hinges work similarly to other hinges with one key difference: the rotating action of the hinge is subject to a constant level of internal friction, allowing it to open smoothly and remain in a set position when released. Also called constant torque hinges, they operate, on a small scale, similarly to the hinge in a clamshell laptop and are highly effective for doors or enclosures of all sizes that need to hold position when opened.
Our friction hinges are ideal for a variety of industrial applications including hatches, lids, covers, doors, and other enclosures, and we offer hinges in a variety of sizes, axial load strengths, and radial tensile load strengths required for any door.
As with all our products, we offer friction hinges in a range of materials and finishes. Our torque hinges come in black plastic, white plastic, aluminum, injection-molded POM, and PA (nylon), and we use stainless steel internal components for durability and stability.
We're proud to offer a comprehensive array of friction and torque hinges, but if you don't see exactly the product you're looking for, we can help. Our engineering department specializes in custom-manufactured access hardware, and we can work with you to either modify an existing design or create a brand new friction hinge design from scratch and custom-manufacture it cost-effectively.
You deserve the best in world-class access hardware, and at SPEP, our mission is to help OEMs and hardware distributors everywhere get the best possible value on world-class access hardware products. Contact us today to learn more about our catalog of friction hinges or to start designing your own custom-manufactured access hardware. We look forward to hearing from you and exceeding your expectations in world-class access hardware!
