How to remove panels without losing the hinge pins
21 July 2010
Those who go onsite or complete final assembly of panels with removable doors will be familiar with the problems of occasionally losing a hinge pin. This can now be assigned to the past, thanks to EMKA's new 1031 hinges, which have self-retaining pins that allow doors, signs, inspection panels and so on, to be conveniently removed or replaced without fear of losing the hinge pin.
The 1031 series presently comes in two 90mm types for 25mm and 16mm door returns, allowing up to 125° door opening. Both share the same captive pin mechanism, which permits withdrawal from the door mounted part – a feature that greatly eases alignment on re-assembly. Variants of the 1031 hinges are available in either zinc plated steel or AISI 304 stainless steel.
