LaDeau Industrial & Aerospace Hinge Manufacturer Serving Florida

Imagine, for a moment, a world void of hinges – transportation, construction, military engagement, infrastructure, and more, would be dramatically altered.  Moving parts incorporated into any number of industries would come to a standstill. It’s hard to imagine how our world would have to be ‘refitted’ if hinges were no longer utilized.  If you think about it, a world without hinges would be, in essence, a world with very restricted movement.

The use of hinges goes back thousands of years and their countless uses and applications continue to this day.  At LaDeau Manufacturing, we are passionate about doing our part to keep the world moving, quite literally. We manufacture hinges of all types, stocked and highly-customized, in an ISO-Certified environment to serve any type of need, in any type of environment – on land, within our seas & oceans, and throughout the vastness of the cosmos.

The genesis for LaDeau Manufacturing goes back more than 7 decades, and we are known for our exceptionally robust industrial and aerospace hinges and hinge pins, always offered at fair and competitive prices.  Original Equipment Manufacturers trust our name and our promise to supply industrial and aerospace hinges to meet their demanding mandates. Whether simple or complex, stocked or customized, miniature or heavy-duty, LaDeau Manufacturing has exactly what you are looking for.

LaDeau’s Aerospace Hinges

With LaDeau Manufacturing, our quality-control measures are intense, and every hinge is held up to the strictest scrutiny – they have to be!  This is because the majority of our patrons are aerospace clientele who approach us with exacting quality clauses and demands, and our reputation depends on it!

Our Mil-Spec hinges and pins – such as MS20257, MS20001, and MS20253 – become, ultimately, destined for aerospace endeavors with our butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and continuous/piano hinges being used for this niche market.

LaDeau’s aerospace hinges are also crafted for commercial and military applications that range from basic to astoundingly unique.  From tail assemblies on commercial aircraft, to solar-ray panels on satellites, to military helicopter blade components, LaDeau’s aerospace hinges are depended on to ensure the most critical mechanical functions are predictably reliable.

LaDeau’s Industrial Hinges

LaDeau’s industrial hinges cover a complete spectrum of applications in the US and around the world.  They are ear-tagged as non-consumer products due to their highly-specialized uses. Industrial hinges can be in the form of continuous hinges, piano hinges, butt hinges, spring-load hinges, reverse hinge varieties, and more, which address the intricate needs of medical, military, agricultural, marine venues, and more.

LaDeau’s industrial hinges must have the impressive ability to withstand not only extensive use, but brutal abuse.  A few examples of these tough and tenacious hinges would include those with a 3-hour fire rating, those that are embedded in elevated-freeway viaducts to reduce the transfer of bending stresses between structural components, and those incorporated in radiation-shielding doors in medical and testing facilities.  Industrial hinges are, quite literally, worth their weight in gold.

Customized Industrial and Aerospace Hinges

It is very common for industrial and aerospace hinges to be customized down to the smallest details.  Lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, and other features can be meticulously modified to suit unique requirements.  Thanks to LaDeau’s vast manufacturing arsenal and the adaptability of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our consumers enjoy minimized downtime, pin-point accuracy, and noticeable savings.

Extraordinary Is Our Ordinary!

Excellence in products and services is always our goal at LaDeau Manufacturing.  It’s all about quality, commitment, reliability, and a continued passion for what we do.  Four foundational components contribute to our company’s recognition statewide, nationwide, and worldwide:

***  Integrity – At LaDeau Manufacturing, our mission and philosophy rest on some very essential objectives:  1) manufacture precision products 2) offer fair prices 3) maximize the efficiency of production and delivery without compromising quality and 4) generate personalized relationships with all our consumers.

*** Expertise –  During WWII, our company’s founders joined forces with the Lockheed Corporation, which manufactured a variety of aircraft, including bombers.  Today, the Lockheed Martin Corporation remains one of the most renowned military facilities in the US.

After the war, the aircraft industry was on the cusp of a production explosion – exciting innovations and technologies were emerging.  Timing was everything, and our founders took full advantage of this and founded their own entity, LaDeau Manufacturing. The company focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies, but so much has changed since then.

Today, LaDeau Manufacturing serves national and global interests with an exceptionally-vast consumer base involved in marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security ventures.

*** Quality – ISO compliance means our patrons can expect products of the highest caliber.  Our production 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, we are proud of our more-than-99.8%  consumer-acceptance rate, in addition to being independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.

***  Capabilities –  LaDeau’s quality control measures translate into hinges that offer performance that ensures top-tier strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution.  A varied 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.  As a side-note, we’d like to give a shout-out to our engineering and tooling department that consistently exudes talent of the highest caliber!
