At Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products, we’re proud to be your leading industrial hardware supply source. We go above and beyond, using the best engineers and designs to manufacture top quality access hardware - such as handles, locks, and hinges - all at competitively low prices.
Stop hinges are used to limit the range of motion of an object - typically a door - or stop it at a certain angle. By doing this, stop hinges are able to prevent damage to walls or other objects nearby. Stop hinges are commonly used on doors for breaker boxes, medicine cabinets, tool chests, and more, preventing door handles or door edges from colliding with another object.
But how do stop hinges work? First, they are mounted to a door or lid, typically on the outside. They begin at an open, flat angle of 180 degrees, and when opened, come to rest at a fixed point. When a stop hinge is mounted inside a door, it is mounted in a folded position while the door or lid is closed, and then moves to an open position before ceasing at its fixed stopping point.
SPEP manufactures continuous style stop hinges produced from cold rolled steel with an open width of 1.06 inches and a length of 72 inches. The 0.035-inch thick hinges can be made to operate with an inside or outside stop.
Our talented engineers are able to assist in both modifying existing styles or creating new stop hinge designs - including custom stop angles - for your industrial original equipment manufacturer product.
At SPEP, we strive to provide 100% customer satisfaction, which is why we work diligently to ensure every piece we manufacture is the top quality access hardware you expect from us. This is evidenced by our ISO 9001 and UL certification, as well as our use of Oracle’s Quality Module. Our warehouses and shop floor are also totally automated, so each order is able to be updated quickly and accurately across our system, allowing us to easily track customer orders.
On top of our stellar operating system, SPEP is also a 100% employee-owned company, meaning every employee has a stake in our collective success, so you can trust we are dedicated to providing top quality while maintaining our affordable pricing.
