New counterbalance support hinge reduces overall solution cost

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.

Southco’s CB 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 adjustable, allowing the designer to define the end user experience by tailoring open and closing efforts to the unique requirements of the application.

With robust, all-aluminum construction, CB Hinges offer improved corrosion resistance and consistent performance in hot and cold temperatures, the company says, as well as improving functionality and aesthetics when compared to traditional gas struts.

When installed with its standard CB Counterbalance Hinge, the CB Counterbalance Support Hinge offers the benefits of a counterbalance product, but at a lower cost, it says.
