Solution claims precise control while reducing overall cost
A new CB counterbalance support hinge from Southco – and available from Zygology – can be utilised in tandem with a single CB counterbalance hinge to reduce the total solution cost of lifting and positioning heavy panels and lids.
“For applications where one counterbalance hinge can supply the necessary torque requirements of the panel or lid on its own, the new CB counterbalance support hinge enables ergonomic lifting and position control.

Comments Richard Avery, Zygology’s sales manager: “Any opportunity for our customers to reduce their solution costs, whilst ensuring exceptional performance, is always welcome. The safety and ease of lifting heavy panels and lids provided by the CB Counterbalance Hinge, combined with reduced costs, thanks to the new Support hinge, make this an ideal new product for our customers.”
