United Kingdom Continuous Hinge Manufacturer

Continuous hinges are synonymous with piano hinges, whose original use was to support the weight of heavy piano lids – hence the name. The ‘piano hinge’ term evolved in some circles to ‘continuous hinge’ to more appropriately reflect the myriad of uses that piano/continuous hinges offer.

Continuous hinges can be embedded onto doors for panels, military vehicles, warehouses, machines, aircraft, and so much more. To offer maximized strength and durability, continuous hinges can run the entire length of the object to which they are attached.
