Original Press Release:

Hinges from J.W. Winco Have Integrated Safety Switch

NEW BERLIN, WI -- J.W. Winco, Inc., a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, announced it now offers series EN 239.1 and EN 239.2 Hinges with Integrated Safety Switch, in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant hinges were designed for accident prevention; the safety circuit is disrupted as soon as the door is opened. The switch is a tamper-proof, forced-opening safety switch. The function of the switch cannot be altered, because the casing is integrated and “ultra-welded” to the hinge. Hinge and switch form a single component, making installation easy, rapid and safe.

Hinges are technopolymer plastic (Polyamide PA) with a black matte finish. The hinge pin is stainless steel, European Standard No. 1.4305 (American Standard Series 303). Hinges are available with the switch on the right side (EN 239.1) or left (EN 239.2). Two types are offered for each: with countersunk screw holes (for use with DIN 7991 countersunk head screws), or with slotted holes (for use with DIN 6912 cylindrical head screws).

These hinges can also be used with aluminum profile connections. UL-approved GN 330 connecting cables are available to use in connection with the hinges.

Winco offers an extensive selection of inch and metric size adjustable levers, cabinet U-handles, plastic and steel hinges and locking mechanisms, revolving and retractable handles, hand wheels, hand cranks, tube connection and conveyor components, inch and metric construction tubing, shock absorption mounts, leveling mounts, hand knobs, spring, ball and indexing plungers, jig, fixture and fastening components, retaining magnet assemblies, toggle clamps, metric casters and wheels, universal joints, oil sight glasses, and metric tools for the industrial and commercial equipment industries.
