Force to be reckoned with

The Elesa CMUF 270° hinge is said to offer a simple way of supporting flaps, panels, hatches and doors in a desired position against the effect of gravity or limited external forces

The CMUF adjustable friction hinge can, in some instances, negate the need for hatch springs or gas struts, states Elesa. "The new hinge allows for simple friction adjustment with use of an axially mounted hex socket screw to suit varying circumstances on enclosures or cabinets."

The braking torque provided by CMUF hinges allows users to set the opening force of the door so that it may stay partially open or will dampen down the closure.

CMUF hinges, manufactured in tough die cast zinc with technopolymer friction elements, are available in black or grey to match the housing, and in sizes of 40mm, 50mm and 60mm.

Meanwhile, Elesa now has a new website up and running. Here are some the key features:

  • Search engine: results provided with preview images to help you make the right selection
  • Greater emphasis on the main services: request CAD drawings, request Catalogue and 'Search Elesa' in the world

  • Qualitative and dimensional selection filters to only display relevant product codes.
