Southco extended its line of externally mounted free-swinging hinges with three new options designed for heavy-duty applications. The EH Free Swinging Hinge is now available in corrosion-resistant aluminum for outdoor use, a lightweight plastic version that provides optimum strength for both indoor and outdoor applications, and a zinc version for indoor use.
The new additions offer solutions for a broad range of door dimensions and weights. Available in sizes up to 100 mm, the EH Plastic Free-Swinging Hinge series provides a high-strength, economical solution for multiple interior and exterior application zones. The EH-8C Aluminum Free-Swinging Hinge features corrosion-resistance with adjustability for large panels where mounting space is limited. Together, with the EH-7A Zinc Free-Swinging Hinge, these hinges deliver high strength in a compact package, lowering overall equipment costs and reducing application weight.
“Southco’s new plastic, aluminum and zinc EH Free-Swinging Hinges extend our trusted line of surface mount hinges to address the requirements of heavy-duty applications,” said Stewart Beck, global product manager, Southco. “The plastic hinge is compact and powerful, the aluminum hinge provides corrosion resistance, and the zinc hinge features adjustable mounting, offering solutions for demanding industries, including HVAC, industrial equipment, and transportation.”
