LaDeau’s Aerospace Hinges

At LaDeau Manufacturing, many of our clients are aerospace professionals or distributors who approach us with very detailed and exacting quality clauses.  Our Mil-Spec hinges and pins – such as MS20257, MS20001, MS20253, AA555, and MS358 – become, ultimately, destined for aerospace, and other critical applications.  LaDeau’s butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and piano hinges are commonly utilized for aerospace purposes. Our aerospace hinges serve commercial and military applications – from tail assemblies on commercial aircraft to solar-ray panels on satellites to military helicopter-blade components.

LaDeau’s Industrial Hinges

LaDeau’s industrial hinges are intended as non-consumer hinges due to their specialized applications and the extremely demanding roles they must play in the most extreme environments.  These hinges can be in the form of continuous/piano hinges, butt hinges, spring-load varieties, and more which address the critical needs of medical, military, agriculture, medical, machine, marine industries, and others.

LaDeau’s industrial hinges are manufactured to withstand harsh abuse:  those that can live up to their reputation of possessing a 3-hour fire rating to those utilized in elevated freeway viaducts which reduce the transfer of bending stresses.  Or how about industrial hinges used in radiation-shielding doors to ensure maximized protection from neutron and gamma radiation? The expectations bestowed upon industrial hinges are intense, and LaDeau’s industrial hinges are used in a vast array of industries to ensure everything from simple cabinets, to overhead cranes, to medical robots, to military counter-drone equipment can accomplish their respective missions!

Customized Industrial and Aerospace Hinges

Industrial and aerospace hinges are routinely customized to fit your design– lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, and other features can all be perfectly modified to suit specialized requirements.  Thanks to LaDeau’s vast manufacturing arsenal and the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our consumers can request any types of alterations, for any type of hinge, for any type of use.

Our Principles, Our Passion, Our Promise

At LaDeau Manufacturing, our company’s foundation rests on four cornerstone attributes:

***  Integrity – Our integrity drives our mission: 1)  manufacture precision products 2) offer fair prices 3)  maximize the efficiency of production and delivery without compromising quality and 4) and promote genuine successful relationships with all of our consumers.

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

After the war, the aircraft industry was ready to optimize production as well as embrace exciting innovations.  The timing aligned with our founders’ desire to establish their own company, LaDeau Manufacturing.

At that time, LaDeau Manufacturing focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies.  Today, LaDeau Manufacturing serves national and global interests that cater to marine, medical, commercial, aerospace, military, industrial, agricultural, commercial and security needs.

*** 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 standards to all LaDeau parts – military and commercial.

LaDeau Manufacturing is an ISO-9001:2015 certified world-class hinge manufacturer, and we are proud of our greater-than-99.9% customer-acceptance rate.  We are also independently certified by a variety of aerospace entities.

***  Capabilities –  LaDeau’s stringent quality control means every type of hinge delivered to you offers top-tier strength, alignment, and even-weight distribution.  A varied array of material and finish options are available – steel, 304 stainless steel, stamped 5052 H34 aluminum, or extruded aluminum – and our primary and secondary processes range from press brake forming to welding to plating and, oh, so much more!
