Few people think about hinges until they begin to corrode and squeak and become difficult to operate. On a boat, Plastic Hinges from Beckson Marine make more sense than metal. Available in standard single-pin Full Opening and dual-pin Offset configurations, the hardware combines a premium marine appearance with long-lasting strength and durability.
Beckson Plastic Hinges are manufactured in the USA of lightweight injection molded acetal resin with corrosion-resistant Monel® cupronickel pins. They’re so robust, they have a breaking strength of 150 lbs. To accommodate installation applications with limited space on one side, the hinge leaves are interchangeable. Black or white are standard choices, OEM custom colors can be quoted on request.
Full Opening HGAP Series Plastic Hinges spread a full 180° to allow the hardware to rest flat when closed, making them ideal for hatch covers. They’re offered in lengths of 1-3/4″, 3″, 4″ and 6″; all are 1-1/2″ wide.
Beckson Offset HGBP Series Hinges are useful for applications where two sides are of different heights or thickness. They also allow for a 3/4″ setback from the edge of the door or hatch. The hinges are 1-1/2″ wide and available in four lengths: 2-1/4″, 3-1/2″, 4-7/16″ and 6-7/16″. Visit www.beckson.com.
