- Hinge Terminology
- Offset Hinge
An offset hinge is unique in that one or both leaves are formed away from the center of the pin—a characteristic opposite of swaging. As such, the width of one or both leaves will be smaller than a plain or standard assembly hinge, making offset hinges useful in tight spaces.
Offset hinges can be used in a variety of applications:
- Commercial Buses
- Removable Access Panels / Doors
- Electrical Enclosures
- Fire Truck Compartments
- Refuse Containers
- Agricultural Equipment
Offset hinges can be customized
Stocked offset hinges are the most cost effective solution. Stocked hinges are also the quickest to source for a project on a tight deadline. Even standard offset hinges can be somewhat customized for your application.
Completely customized solutions are also available. Choose from butt, strap, continuous, weld-on, and slip-joint configurations. Specify piercings, bends, and notching unique to your project. A variety of pin and plating options, unique leaf lengths, fasteners, or multiple pin configurations are also available.
