Typical hinges for industrial use are made of a sturdy metal such as steel or stainless steel. The grades of these metals, that are chosen for the production of hinges for manufacturing and production complexes, are malleable, formable, and sturdy with high tensile strength. They have to be able to endure the constant stress and strain of an active work environment.

Only certain types of steel can be used to produce industrial hinges. It has to be flexible enough to be customized but sturdy and durable enough to withstand constant stress and wear. A typical grade of American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) grade of steel chosen for the process is ASTM grade 1018, which is a medium low-carbon steel. It can be shaped to a variety of lengths and widths as well as be welded for custom applications.

Stainless steel has become one of the most popular metals for the production of a variety of products, including hinges. Two of the grades most commonly used for industrial hinges are SAE 304L and SAE 316L, which are strong, malleable, and corrosion resistant. Other grades, such as ASTM grade 1018, SAE 304L and SAE 316L are formable and can be shaped into hinges for unusual conditions.

There are a wide variety of conditions and situations that require heavy duty hinges such as gates to secure locations, storage cabinets, radiation doors, and various types of automated equipment. The requirements and expectations for industrial hinges is like any other piece of manufacturing machinery. They must be long lasting, durable, and reliable. Though they may not be a major investment, due to the processes required to produce them, they are substantially more expensive than a hinge on a bedroom door or closet.

Unlike common hardware store hinges, ones made for industrial use are usually delivered raw so that they can be shaped and formed to fit the customer’s application due to the fact that products such as industrial doors, are not standard and are designed for specific applications. The steel and stainless steel for industrial hinges is pliable enough to be drilled, bent, cut, and deformed so that a hinge can be fitted to its use.
