How does this compare to what you get from other sources?
Well...take a look at the edges of the other hinges. You will notice that our competitors machine out a groove in the edge of the hinge leaf and drill a hole down one side of the 90 degree leaf and drill another hole down the other edge of the leaf. They fish their wire down one straight hole and push it down the other hole. They then fill the hole with epoxy, so you get an instant blemish on a brand new hinge. These hinges are bent at a 90 degree angle, so one might think this is the only way to make them electrified.
We are also burn tested and UL10C, since we do not break the hinge surface and we do not put flamable material, such as epoxy, into the holes.
How does Marray overcome this engineering problem?
We drill our hinges while the leaves are flat and place a steel cable into the hole, then we bend our hinges. We then pull out the cable with our wires attached to it and essentially fish our wires around a corner! Your customer or any casual observer will not even be able to tell that our hinge has wires in it.
Hinges come as TEF2+4 or TEF10C. Most of these are only available in 4.5 inches high or 5.0 inches high. If you are unsure as to what you need, don't hesitate to contact Marray
If you are putting these into sterile environments, such as hospitals, you would want to make sure that you order them in stainless steel. This is a requirement for bacterial reasons, since steel based hinges can rust and be contaminated with microbes.
