Continuous hinges or piano hinges are designed to provide consistency in strength along the entire length of the hinge and securely support the lid or doors attached to them.
This piano hinge is made of 1.0MM stainless steel and comes with pre-punched 5mm diameter holes, 50mm apart from each other. When unfolded, the hinge measures 1.5″ or 38.1mm wide.
If you are building a road case with front open doors, or rear access doors you will need this piano hinge to make it work. Or if you are building a road case with hinged lid, but prefer to use recessed lid-stay instead of using a surface mount type, then you will also need some of this. However, if you are planning to build a case with a lift-off door, then you should look at a few lift-off hinges instead of this piano hinge.
We also stock a more heavy-duty piano hinge that is 2″ wide and made of 1.5mm stainless steel if you need something that is stronger such as on a weight-bearing built-in ramp.
We love to hear from you and encourage you to share your finished road case to our Facebook page, and if you do that we will credit 20 dollars to your next order just to say thank you for your business and job well done!
