Continuous hinges or piano hinges are designed to provide consistency in strength along the entire length of the hinge and securely support the part that is attached to them.
This piano hinge is made of 1.5MM stainless steel and comes with pre-punched 5mm diameter holes, 50mm apart from each other. When unfolded, the hinge measures 2″ or 50.8mm wide.
This heavy-duty piano hinge is generally used where more strength is required than just holding a lid or a door. For example, a road case with a built-in ramp will require this larger and stronger hinge to bear the weight of equipment travel on the ramp. If you are building a road case with front open doors, or rear access doors you can order the 1.5″ continuous hinge from us instead.
