Much hangs on new technopolymer hinges

Elesa has an extensive history of manufacturing hinges from reinforced technopolymers and has just added a range of new models in the material, which it says are well suited to arduous environments

Elesa’s hinges in engineering plastics are designed for use on the doors or panels of protective enclosures, cabinets and frames where strength, lightness, cost and corrosion resistance are key factors. The new CFTX-PP hinges in glass reinforced polypropylene are said to perform well in acidic or basic washdown situations, and the CFM-VD visually detectable polyamide hinges in RAL 5005 blue are well suited to the food and pharmaceutical industries. Likewise the CFM-MD sister products in metal detectable RAL 5001 blue.


New, and again in glass reinforced polyamide technopolymers, are the CFM-TR hinges for enclosures and panels together with the CFM-TR-G hinges with what Elesa calls ‘ingenious’ spacing arrangements to accommodate glass doors or panels. Completing the new Elesa hinge line are the company’s CFG-ERS friction locking hinges which are available in black or grey. They enable the temporary fixing of a door in any position, by virtue of its locking handle and typically are of value in the assembly of protective aluminium profile enclosures and screens.
