Presentation S & S Hinge Co.

The S and S HINGE Company (E-Commerce -  www.SandSHinge.com) is a third-generation lean continuous piano hinge manufacturer (Est. 1932).  We manufacture the mid-range gauges (.035, .040, .050, .060, and .070) of continuous piano hinge in steel, stainless, aluminum, bright-annealed stainless, brass pre-plate, and nickel pre-plate.  We can customize our standard continuous piano hinges with Value-Added options including: Cut-to-length, hole punching, forming, swaging, offsetting, staking, and many other Value-Added fabrications and post-finishes.

S and S stands for "Savings and Service" - the old-fashioned values on which our founders built the business 85 years ago. Today, that means:  Free new-product development, free engineering assistance and free engineered samples/prototypes, new State-of-the-Art ERP/MRP Lean process management systems provide shorter average lead times, certified TQM program assures 100% defect-free parts, and inventory management programs covering all inventory-flow types (ex: JIT, Kanban, etc.).

    Continuous Piano Hinge Characteristics

    Continuous Piano Hinge Characteristics

    Date: 

    Continuous hinges, commonly known as “piano hinges,” are hinges that are at least five inches long.  Continuous piano hinges are:
    • Strong throughout their entire lengths, increasing product rigidity by supporting the full length of applications
    • Easier and more precise to align than two or more butt hinges
    • Attractive and uniform in appearance
    • Smooth in pivotal action, providing optimal axial rotation
    • Low-cost and economical, lasting through many swing cycles
