LaDeau’s Industrial Hinges

LaDeau’s Industrial hinges are manufactured for both simple and specialized applications.  Industrial hinges must withstand conditions where hinge strength and endurance are paramount.  For example, some industrial-grade gate hinges are rated up to 3,000 pounds while other Industrial hinges are embedded in heavy, steel-lined military vehicles used in brutal environments.  Other types of Industrial hinges are 3-hour fire rated while others are embedded in freeway viaducts that must hold up to extreme pressure. Bottom line: LaDeau’s Industrial hinges cater to heavy-duty applications where no-room-for-weakness is a prerequisite!  Medical, military, agriculture, electronic, marine, and construction venues rely on LaDeau’s Industrial hinges to operate with predictable dependability and precision.

Customized Industrial and Aerospace Hinges

Frequently, Industrial and Aerospace hinges must be customized, down to the smallest detail – lengths, widths, hole patterns, forms, paint, ID, and other features can be effortlessly modified to meet any unique request. Thanks to LaDeau’s manufacturing arsenal and the versatility of our proprietary Universal tooling system, our consumers can requisition any type of modification, for any type of hinge, for any type of use.
