LaDeau’s aerospace hinges must meet very strict quality-control standards.  The utmost priority is placed on our hinges’ caliber of strength and durability to seamlessly tolerate endless demands and brutal environments.

Aerospace professionals approach us with exhaustive quality clauses and extreme demands. Our Mil-Spec hinges and pins – such as MS20257, MS20001, MS35821-MS35831, AA-55589 – AA-55596, and MS20253 – become, ultimately, destined for aerospace endeavors, with butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and continuous/piano hinges being commonly utilized.  At LaDeau, we document, implement and maintain the effectiveness of our quality-control measures to ensure our hinges are the epitome of perfection – there is no room for error.

LaDeau’s Globally-Dependent Industrial Hinges

Industrial hinges are designed and manufactured for highly-specialized applications and because of their niche market, they are not designed for common, every-day requirements.  Military defense equipment, lead-filled radiation doors, nuclear-confinement doors, infrastructure, and industrial test cells represent only a fraction of applications that rely on industrial hinge types.  Be assured that LaDeau Manufacturing’s industrial hinges will align with your demands!

At LaDeau Manufacturing, customizing industrial and aerospace hinges is a big part of what we do.  Lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, and other features can all, be intricately modified to suit the most unusual requirements. Thanks to LaDeau’s vast manufacturing arsenal and the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our consumers enjoy minimized fabrication time, pin-point accuracy, and noticeable savings.

Our Reputation is Impeccable

At LaDeau Manufacturing, we continue to incorporate our founders’ commitment to quality in our products and services.  Gaining recognition as a world-class hinge manufacturer has been a passionate journey based on our:

*** Unquestioned Integrity – At LaDeau Manufacturing, four objectives form the heart of our mission to you:  1) manufacture precision products 2) offer fair prices 3) maximize the efficiency of production and delivery without compromising quality and 4) generate successful relationships with all of our consumers.

*** Unsurpassed Expertise –  During WWII, our company’s founders worked with the Lockheed Corporation, which manufactured a variety of aircraft, and similar technology.  Today, the Lockheed Martin Corporation remains one of the most renowned manufacturing facilities in the US.

Once the war ended, the aircraft industry was eager and ready to take on new innovations and emerging technologies.  Our founders took full advantage of the booming aircraft industry, and emerged as an independent entity, LaDeau Manufacturing.  At that time, the company focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies. Since then, much has changed – today, LaDeau’s products and capabilities serve local, national and global interests that cater to marine, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial, security, medical, electronic, tech., and transportation venues.

*** Uncompromising 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.

Today, as an ISO-9001:2015 certified hinge manufacturer, we are proud of our more-than-99.8%  customer-acceptance rate and being independently certified by a multitude of aerospace entities.

*** Comprehensive Capabilities –  LaDeau’s stringent quality control means every hinge shipped offers unmatched strength, endurance, alignment, and even-weight distribution.  A varied array of material and finish options are available – steel, stainless steel, brass, stamped aluminum, or extruded aluminum. Our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating and so much more.  LaDeau Manufacturing is proud of its engineering personnel whose passion and expertise are truly exceptional!
