Our product highlights: multiple-joint hinges of the series SEPTOMAX®

Lids/doors in vehicle construction, in railway vehicles, in trailer construction, on cabinets and cupboards, lids of any kind with an opening angle of up to approx. 180 degrees.

Galvanised steel
Galvanised and chromated steel
Steel, dacromet coated
Stainless steel

The hinge is attached to the frame and to the inside of the lid/door. The attachment between the hinge, frame and lid is therefore not visible from the outside.
When operating, the lid/door is lifted and at the same time rotated to the top. After the rotation/lift motion the lid/door will be open to approx. 180 degree (180° hinge).
The motion and the "holding" in the open and closed state can be supported by a gas pressure damper or a spring. A connection for this purpose is added by default.
