Hinges for Construction Industry


Hinges for the Construction Industry Equipment

Hinges play an important role in the safety and efficiency of construction equipment. They facilitate the movement of doors and guards of construction equipment enabling their maneuverability and operation. At Kiesler Machine, we provide heavy duty hinges for construction equipment in the UK. We specialize in premium quality custom hinges for construction equipment. These heavy duty hinges are known for their robustness and can withstand heavy loads as well as challenging working conditions.

Types of Heavy Duty Hinges Use for Construction Equipment

Kiesler Machine offers a diverse range of hinges designed to meet specific construction equipment needs:

  • Heavy Duty Butt Hinges: These hinges feature rectangular metal leaves that are attached to the adjoining surfaces of the frame and the door using a central pin. The leaves feature interconnecting knuckles, which are visible after the installation. We provide these hinges in carbon steel or stainless steel material in a non-handed configuration.
  • Heavy Duty Pivot Hinges: These hinges receive their name from their ability to pivot the door or guard on a single point, typically at the top or bottom of the door provided by these hinges. We can provide heavy duty pivot hinges in carbon steel, 304 or 316 stainless steel.
  • Heavy Duty Weld-on Hinges: Heavy duty weld-on hinges are mostly used in applications where durability and strength are paramount. As the name suggests, these hinges are welded directly onto the surface, providing a strong and permanent attachment. These hinges can be perfectly used in heavy duty industrial settings that require a strong grip and hold such as gates, doors, trailers and heavy machinery, and which can withstand the weight or stress.
  • Full Surface Hinges: A full surface hinge is a type of hinge that is mounted on the surface of both the door and the door frame. The entire hinge is visible when the door is closed. These hinges are mounted on the surface in such a way that they are fully exposed and are often used in applications where quick and straightforward installation is desired.
  • Half Surface Hinges: A half surface hinge is a type of hinge where one leaf is surface-mounted on the outside of the surface, while the other leaf is mortised into the door or frame. This design allows one part of the hinge to be visible on the door surface.
  • Half Mortise Hinges: These hinges are called so because only one leaf of the hinge is mortised into the door. Later, when these hinges are properly installed, half mortise hinges create a flush appearance on the surface as these hinges are preferred when there is a requirement for a clean and streamlined appearance.
  • Strap Hinges: Strap hinges feature a long, narrow flat metal strip and are commonly used in applications where a decorative or rustic look is required. These hinges are made from durable materials that can support heavy doors and gates.
