Paint Clearance

Paint Clearance provides free space between the knuckle and the leaf of a hinge and allows for a free range of movement in any hinge position. This means that if you choose to paint your hinges to match the rest of your industrial machinery or product, you can rest assured that the paint won’t be rubbed off during the operation of the hinge.

While seemingly unimportant, the paint clearance on your hinges can mean not only a nice paint job, but can make or break the overall wear of your products. If your clearances aren’t adequate for the millage of paint in your application, over time the paint will rub leaving exposed substrate surfaces, which leads to an increased likelihood of corrosion.

Let Us Meet Your Paint Clearance Needs
