Washington Piano Hinge Manufacturer
The labels ‘piano’ hinge and ‘continuous’ hinge are interchangeable. The term ‘piano’ hinge was used originally to reference the elongated, durable hinges that were attached to piano lids. The multi-functionality of piano hinges was quickly realized. Today, this type of hinge is embedded in everything from military vehicles, to livestock gates, to storage compartments in boats – it’s all about uninterrupted support along the full length of the pieces being joined. Piano hinges can be cut to any length to cater to any application, large or small.
