Customized Hinges for Customized Needs

Custom hinges are designed and destined for some of the most jaw-dropping applications.  Military exoskeleton armor suits, for example, utilize custom hinges that allow this type of technology to provide beyond-human strength and endurance.  In fact, Lockheed Martin is coordinating its efforts with developers to help design more advanced ‘superhuman’ soldiers who would be able to carry taxing loads over long distances, with minimal effort – customized hinges make it happen.

But its not just military missions that utilize custom hinges.  Infrastructure, for example, embeds double-hinged expansion joints in overpasses to keep high-rise/high-use structures from collapsing during earthquakes.  The medical field depends on custom hinges, too, allowing bionic knee braces to move and, thereby, store and release energy to increase walking, jogging, and running capabilities for those with knee or leg injuries – the list could go on regarding how custom hinges perform, so impressively, in so many ways!

You can count on LaDeau’s:

* Expertise –It was in 1946 when our founders’ previous wartime service at Lockheed Corporation carried over to the post-war aircraft industry. This time in history allowed LaDeau Manufacturing to establish itself as an independent company. At that time, hinge assemblies for post-war aircraft became the focus.

As mentioned, LaDeau serves a myriad of industries – marine, aerospace, military, agricultural, commercial, medical, electronics, and security venues. They rely on our 70-plus years of expertise and our 100-plus years of combined experience. This is why, for example, Aerospace OEMs trust our talents and technologies to deliver precisely what they require.

* Quality – ISO compliance ensures the highest caliber of product quality, functionality and durability. Our manufacturing standards are based on our founders’ original commitment to apply the stringent MIL-l-45208A standard to all LaDeau parts – mil-spec and commercial. LaDeau Manufacturing is an ISO-9001:2015 certified World-Class hinge manufacturer with a 99.8% customer-acceptance rate. Quality control means every hinge product, fully, aligns with our stringent inspections, assessments, and evaluations.

* Capabilities –Special notches, non-traditional hole diameters, modified hinge lengths & widths, shape & mounting alterations, and unique combinations & configurations come into play to create custom hinges of endless varieties. Special instructions for finishing, trimming, notching, lancing, imprinting, and more are realized thanks to our in-house technologies and our dedicated engineers. Our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating – the list continues – everything you need is right here, under one roof.

Amazing Custom-Hinge Fact – Did You Know…

One of the heaviest custom-hinged doors in the world is located at the US Energy Department’s Neutron Test Facility in Livermore, California.  This behemoth – serving as a neutron fusion power shield – is 8 feet thick and nearly 12 feet wide.  It is filled with concrete which accounts for most of its weight of 97,000 pounds!  Thanks to the door’s customized-hinge components, which include special bearings, a single person can open and shut this gargantuan creation with astonishing ease!
