Custom Marine Hinges
Custom marine and boat hinges are constructed of materials that are specifically designed to resist the unique elements acting on them in the marine environment, which is a highly corrosive environment. Furthermore, safety and durability in the marine environment is of the utmost importance when it comes to equipment. As such, marine grade hinges must be manufactured to the tightest tolerances and highest grade materials in order to stand up to the punishing uses put to them at sea.
Special marine hinges are generally used on ships, platforms and equipment that face direct exposure to moisture which can clog a hinge with dirt or other particles as well as salt water. In fact, salt can be extremely damaging to hinges as it can cause rusting and make doors and openings difficult to operate – a condition you cannot afford especially in demanding environments.
Some common places you will find corrosion resistant marine hinges include:
- Hatches & Doors
- Lights and Electronics Mounting
- Boat Boxes
- Windshield Attachments
