Brookfield proudly stands behind the high quality heavy duty hinges that we produce. Many of our hinges carry lifetime performance guarantee including Series W, Series K, Series CPH, Series i (i8510-i8513) hinges. Hinges that do not meet the performance requirements under normal operating conditions, or have a material or manufacturing defect, will be replaced or reworked.
Our heavy duty hinges are constructed from various metals. The exact material used depends on the required capacity, as determined by the specific application. Series I and Series W are fabricated from 1018 cold rolled steel as standard. Series-W has an option for 304 stainless steel. For extreme requirements demanding up to 175,000 lb. holding capacity, our extra heavy duty hinges are manufactured from A36 plate steel, or similar. When aesthetics or corrosion resistance are of concern, we offer optional finishes for our hinges including zinc clear steel, satin chrome steel and buffed satin stainless steel.
