LaDeau’s Aerospace Hinges

LaDeau’s quality-control measures are second to none, and every hinge receives the utmost scrutiny to ensure quality and precision.  Many of our consumers are aerospace or industrial professionals who approach us with exacting quality clauses and demands. Our Mil-Spec hinges and pins – such as MS20257, MS20001, and MS20253 – become, ultimately, destined for aerospace endeavors.  Our butt hinges, spring-loaded hinges, and continuous/piano hinges are used for this niche market.


LaDeau’s aerospace hinges are also designed for next-generation civilian and defense aviation.  Designs and functions of these hinges cover the gamut from what would be considered mundane to what could be considered remarkable.  From landing gear and brakes on commercial and military aircraft to instrumentation systems to military helicopter blade components and space satellites, LaDeau’s aerospace hinges ensure the most critical mechanical functions operate when they should and how they should, always.

LaDeau’s Industrial Hinges

LaDeau’s industrial hinges are integral components in an endless array of local, national, and global industrial markets.  They are categorized as specialized, non-consumer products due to their demanding and, sometimes, unusual roles. Industrial hinges can be in the form of continuous/piano hinges, butt hinges, spring-load varieties, and others which address medical, military, research, laboratory, agricultural, marine applications, and more.

LaDeau’s industrial hinges are incredibly durable – meant to withstand continuous use, as well as extreme abuse.  Hinges with a 3-hour fire rating, hinges incorporated in test facilities’ radiation-shielding doors, electronic equipment, and those used in medical robotics equipment represent only three examples of how vitally important and equally impressive industrial hinges truly are.  From design to delivery, LaDeau’s industrial hinges are available for any need.

Customized Industrial and Aerospace Hinges

LaDeau Manufacturing is an industry leader in the customization of any type of hinge for any type of use.  Our industrial and aerospace hinges are commonly customized down to the smallest detail – lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, plating, and other features can be intricately modified.  Thanks to LaDeau’s vast manufacturing arsenal and the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our customers enjoy minimized downtime and pinpoint precision.

***  Integrity – At LaDeau Manufacturing, our mission and philosophy rest on four critical objectives:  1) manufacture precision hinges 2) offer fair prices 3) maximize the efficiency of production and delivery without compromising quality and 4)  generate personalized and successful relationships with every customer.

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

As with most success stories, timing is everything, and that was true for our founders who took full advantage of the post-war window of opportunity – they launched LaDeau Manufacturing.  The company focused on the production of aircraft hinge assemblies, but the company’s continued success spilled over into other arenas. Today, LaDeau Manufacturing serves national and global interests with a vast consumer base involved in marine, aerospace, military, medical, tech., industrial, agricultural, commercial, and security ventures.

*** Quality – ISO compliance means our customers expect and get, products of the highest caliber.  Our production standards parallel our founders’ original commitment to apply the then-stringent MIL-l-45208A standard to all LaDeau parts – military and commercial.

As an ISO-9001:2015 certified world-class hinge manufacturer, we are extremely proud of our greater than 99.9%  customer acceptance rate, in addition to being independently certified by a variety of aerospace and independent entities.
