Aluminum Continuous Hinges

RONKONKOMA, NY """" H. A. Guden Co., Inc. has introduced a new, lower cost line of aluminum continuous hinges. Guden is one the largest suppliers of hinges in the country, and with this offering, engineers and buyers have an even larger selection hinge types, materials and sizes to choose from. Guden's new AL Series aluminum hinges are made of 3003 series alloy and are stocked in various widths in .040, .050 and .060 inch leaf thicknesses with .50 inch knuckles. This commercial strength alloy is considerably less expensive than Guden's type-5052 hinge and can be used for most standard applications. In addition, due to its softer properties, it is a more desirable alloy for hinges being machined or put through secondary processes. Guden's standard 5052 alloy AA Series aluminum hinges are stocked in similar sizes and used primarily in military spec hinge applications. Type-5052 aluminum is a harder and stronger alloy as compared to other commercial varieties. With considerably more tensile strength and higher yield and elongation factor, the AA Series aluminum hinges can be specified in applications that require more durability and strength. Technical drawings, purchasing and immediate delivery are all available by phone, fax and online at Established in 1920, Guden is an ISO 9000:2000 Registered Company. For more information, contact H.
