Continuous/Piano Hinges

Specialized equipment that manufactures the very-stringent MS20257 Mil-Spec hinges is also used to manufacture LaDeau’s industrial continuous/piano hinges.  Original Equipment Manufacturers, whether nationally or internationally, have continued to depend on LaDeau’s highest quality continuous/piano hinges to meet their critical roles.  Our aluminum piano hinges, stainless steel piano hinges, and steel continuous/piano hinges are American-made and cold-rolled in an ISO-Certified environment. Search if you will, but attempting to locate a more rugged metal-stamped continuous/piano hinge anywhere else on the world market will take you right back to LaDeau Manufacturing.


Millions of feet of continuous/piano hinges have rolled out of our in-house tooling department – from 0.008″ (0.2mm) thin to 0.186″ (4.72mm) thick – in aluminum, stainless steel, steel, brass, and other specialty metals.  Whether you need basic continuous/piano hinges or customized varieties, LaDeau Manufacturing will meet any of your requirements.

Mil-Spec Piano Hinges

Mil-Spec piano hinges must meet a multitude of highly-detailed requirements, as determined by the US Department of Defense, and are made to MS20257, MS20001, MS35821 – MS35831 and A-A-55589 through A-A-55596 designations.  Mating 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.  For decades, aircraft manufacturers and other particularly demanding industries have placed their absolute faith in the quality and performance of Mil-Spec hinges that carry the LaDeau Manufacturing name.

Customized Hinges

LaDeau Manufacturing can modify any and all features on solid-barrel hinges, spring-loaded hinges, precision hinges, and others.  Customized hinges must have the ability to seamlessly perform unusual functions. Altered lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, imprint, and other detailing can be easily achieved.  LaDeau’s comprehensive manufacturing arsenal, combined with the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, allow our Tennessee clientele to enjoy minimized fabrication time, reduced downtime, optimized repeatability, pin-point accuracy, and noticeable savings.

Our Reputation is Our Anchor

LaDeau Manufacturing is very proud to be recognized as a global leader in the hinge manufacturing industry.  Reaching that lofty status is due to promoting excellence with our products, services, and customer care. That is all achieved through:

*** Our Integrity – Four cornerstone principles drive our company:  1) manufacturing hinges of the highest quality 2) ensuring fair and competitive price points 3)  maximizing efficiency with production and delivery and 4) generating personal relationships with every customer – our customers are the lifeblood of our success, and that is never taken for granted!

***  Our Expertise – During WWII, LaDeau’s founders proudly contributed their skills as employees of the Lockheed Corporation.  This impressive aerospace facility manufactured bombers and other types of war-ready aircraft. Today, Lockheed Martin is recognized as one of the most prominent military-defense/aerospace entities in the US.

After the war, the post-war aircraft industry was chomping at the bit to embrace the jet age – aviation experts were ready to take full advantage of this window of opportunity, and that included our founders  who chose to emerge as their own, independent entity: ‘LaDeau Manufacturing.’ At that time, LaDeau Manufacturing focused on the manufacturing of aircraft hinge assemblies.

Today, LaDeau Manufacturing offers its unquestioned expertise to meet the large-scale hinge needs of marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security industries, among others.

***  Our Quality – ISO compliance is critical – it translates into our consumers having access to unsurpassed quality in every product LaDeau manufactures.  Our unyielding quality-control standards parallel 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%  customer acceptance rate, as well as being independently certified by a number of aerospace entities.

***  Our Capabilities – Out-of-the-ordinary detailing, combinations, and configurations for any customized hinge request are all in a day’s work.  LaDeau’s custom hinges offer a level of strength, alignment and even-weight distribution to address any type of unconventional need.  An array of material and finish options are available – steel, stainless steel, stamped aluminum, or extruded aluminum – and our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating, and so much more.
