Custom Hinges’ Exceptional Roles 

Imagine metal 3-D printers at military depots or battlefields that can rapidly manufacture critically-needed replacement parts, on-demand – custom hinges are there.  Then, there are double-hinged expansion joints embedded in high-capacity overpasses that absorb heat, movement, and pressure, even during seismic activity – custom hinges are there.  Or, how about double/triple-weight steel doors weighing 800 pounds or 2,000 pounds or more that must be precisely supported – custom hinges are there.  And, yes, even smaller endeavors such as medical devices, and electronics – custom hinges are there.  From manufacture to development to delivery to function, the LaDeau name is in a league of its own where custom hinges remain our specialty and our passion.

As a globally-applauded custom hinge manufacturer, our consumers benefit from our:

* Expertise – It was in 1946 when our founders’ previous wartime service at Lockheed Corporation carried over to the post-war aircraft industry.  This era allowed LaDeau Manufacturing to emerge as an independent company.  At that time, hinge assemblies for post-war aircraft became the focus.  Today, LaDeau serves a myriad of industries up and down the west coast, nationally and around the world – marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial, and security venues – they rely on our 70-plus years of expertise and our more than 100 years of combined experience.  This is why, for example, Aerospace OEMs and other Washington customers trust our talents and technologies knowing they will receive, precisely, what they require.

* Quality – ISO compliance ensures the highest caliber of product 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 – military 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 is subjected to comprehensive inspections, assessments, and evaluations – from design to distribution.

* 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 hole patterns, trimming, notching, lancing, forming, imprinting, and more are all in a day’s work.  Our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating to painting – the list goes on – yes, we do it all!

Also, LaDeau’s Made In USA, and factory-direct advantage allow us to increase savings and decrease lead times for our Washington patrons – fast, precise, dependable solutions, every time!

Fun Custom-Hinge Fact

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 mammoth beast – 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 behemoth with astonishing ease!
