Continuous/Piano Hinges

The same precision equipment that manufactures the very-exacting MS20257 Mil-Spec hinges is used to manufacture LaDeau’s commercial continuous/piano hinges.  For decades, Original Equipment Manufacturers around the world have relied on the superior quality of LaDeau’s continuous/piano hinges to meet their demanding requirements.  Our steel continuous/piano hinges are American-made and cold-rolled in an ISO-Certified environment. A step further, our aluminum and stainless steel continuous hinges are also made of high-grade American raw material. You will not find a more robust, metal-stamped continuous/piano hinge anywhere else on the world market!

Literally, millions of feet of continuous/piano hinges have been manufactured under our roof – from 0.008″ (0.2mm) thin to 0.186″ (4.72mm) thick – in aluminum, stainless steel, steel, brass, and other specialty metals.  Whether basic continuous/piano hinges or customized continuous/piano hinges, LaDeau Manufacturing will make precisely what you need, each time, and every time.

Mil-Spec Piano Hinges

Mil-Spec piano hinges must satisfy very specific technical standards, and our Mil-Spec varieties are made to MS20257, MS20001, MS35821 – MS35831 and A-A-55589 through A-A-55596 specifications.  Mil-Spec hinge pin specifications include MS20253, MS27990, and A-A-55486.  Stocked hinges of 72″ length are available in a variety of materials and finishes, and lengths can be quickly modified for highly-customized needs.  We can also manufacture longer than 72”. For decades, aircraft manufacturers and other massive industries have trusted the quality and performance of Mil-Spec hinges, with the LaDeau name.

Customized Hinges

LaDeau Manufacturing can modify the smallest of features on piano hinges, spring-loaded hinges, precision hinges, and other types, to cater to the most specific feature requests.  Altered lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, and other detailing can be achieved with absolute ease. This is a core strength of LaDeau. LaDeau’s comprehensive manufacturing arsenal, combined with the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, allow our Rhode Island clientele to enjoy minimized fabrication time, reduced downtime, optimized repeatability, pin-point accuracy, and noticeable savings.

Our Reputation Is Rock Solid

As a global leader in the hinge manufacturing industry, LaDeau will never deviate from upholding our hard-earned reputation for excellence with our products and our customer care.  We accomplish that through:

*** Our Integrity – LaDeau’s mission and philosophy revolve around four key principles that guide every aspect of our company:  1) consistently offer products of the highest quality 2) ensure fair and competitive pricing 3) optimize efficiency with quoting, production, and delivery and 4)  establish a personal relationship with every patron – remaining customer-centric is vital!

***  Our Expertise – During WWII, LaDeau’s founders proudly contributed their knowledge and skills as employees of the Lockheed Corporation – an aerospace company which manufactured bombers and other types of vital aircraft.  Today, Lockheed Martin is recognized as one of the most capable military-defense/aerospace facilities in the US.

Once the war came to an end, post-war aircraft manufacturing was on its way to embrace the jet age – the time was ripe for aviation experts to offer their various talents.  It was then that ‘LaDeau Manufacturing’ emerged, with the production of aircraft hinge assemblies being our main focus.

If we fast forward to today, we find LaDeau Manufacturing serving the large-scale needs of expansive national and global entities, including marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security industries.

***  Our Quality – ISO compliance means our Rhode Island clientele receive unsurpassed quality in every product LaDeau manufactures.  Our strict quality-control standards align with our founders’ original commitment to apply stringent MIL-l-45208A standard to all LaDeau parts – military and commercial.  As an ISO-9001:2015 certified world-class hinge manufacturer, LaDeau Manufacturing enjoys a 99.8%  consumer-acceptance rate as well as being independently certified by a number of aerospace entities.
