Southco Asia Ltd., a subsidiary of Southco
Inc., a leading global provider of engineered access solutions such as locks,
latches, captive fasteners, electronic access solutions and hinges/ positioning
technology, Southco has expanded its series of Counterbalance Hinges with a
new product that reduces the total solution cost of lifting and positioning
heavy panels and lids. Southco's CB Counterbalance Support Hinge is designed to
be used in tandem with the CB Counterbalance Hinge, in applications where the Counterbalance
Hinge can support the full torque requirements of the panel or lid on its own.
Counterbalance Support Hinge
Counterbalance Support Hinge enables ergonomic lifting and position control
when combined with a CB Counterbalance Hinge by using stored energy to balance
the weight distribution of a lid or panel. The hinges are fully adjustable,
allowing the experience of opening and closing the panel to be tailored to the
unique requirements of the application.
all-aluminum construction, CB Hinges offer improved corrosion resistance and
consistent performance in hot and cold temperatures. Additionally, the CB
Counterbalance Support Hinge provides an increased life cycle, reducing the
need for maintenance over time.
Manager Stewart Beck adds, "The Counterbalance Support
Hinge improves functionality and aesthetics when compared to traditional gas
struts. When installed with our standard CB
Counterbalance Hinge, the
CB Counterbalance Support Hinge offers the benefits of a Counterbalance
product, but allows users to significantly lower their total solution cost."
