We offer an extensive range of standard hinges that have proven themselves worldwide in numerous ways.
Through their high quality standard, our hinges measure up to the various different application purposes and requirements.
Our standard products are readily available and can be delivered at short notice..
We design and manufacture customized hinge solutions based on the individual customer requirements in certified quality on CAD basis.
Our particular strength lies in the custom-made products and is distinguished by flexibility, creativity and over 150 years of development expertise.
Internal Hinge Solutions - Invisible and highly flexible
There is an obvious trend in the field of connectivity solutions: In almost every industry the need for clean design, clear surfaces and freedom in construction is constantly growing. For different reasons:
- A clean design is "trend" in almost any industrial market; even if it´s not architecture.
- Flaps, doors and hatches become rounder, more curved and over all more asymmetric
- Designer require more degrees of freedom in creating new and modern product surfaces
- Usual external hinges go along with clearence between the door/hatch and the body
- More over external hinges always cause problems with corrosion and (intentional) damage
- ERGO: Under these circumstances external hinges hit their own limits
For these reasons we at Emil Kaltenbach offer a wide range of "Internal hinges" that directly refer to the above mentioned issues:
SEPTOMAX - Multi-Link-Hinges, fully internal mounted, with max. opening angle of 270 degrees (more...)
Profile hinges with individual specifications for heavy applications (more...)
Rolled hinges as filigree solution for almost any kind of connecting usage (more...)
Invisible hinges made as rolled version or as weld-on solution (more...)
(Asortment can be individually customized)
