New Counterbalance Hinge from Southco Makes Heavy Lids and Panels Feel Lightweight

Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access hardware solutions, has recently expanded its successful line of position control hinges with the addition of a new hinge designed to assist the lifting and positioning of heavy lids and panels.
Designed with an integrated spring system, the CA Counterbalance Hinge allows a heavy lid to be lifted with minimal operating effort, and will continue to hold it securely in any position. The CA Counterbalance Hinge features an external mounting style, allowing for increased capacity within the enclosure, and eliminates the need for secondary support components to hold lids or panels in position. Southco’s CA Counterbalance Hinges can be fine-tuned to the feel of the lid or panel, eliminating the need for constant maintenance and readjustment, and offer effortless fingertip positioning and a tested, repeatable cycle life validated for 20k cycles of operation.

Global Product Manager Todd Schwanger adds, “The CA Counterbalance Hinge features a spring system designed to take the effort out of lifting and supporting lids, doors and panels by counteracting the weight of the lid, providing precise balance for ease of positioning.”
