Roll over the continuous hinge parts below to see their definitions.
Continuous hinges, commonly known as "piano hinges," are hinges that are at least six inches long.
Use this overview of continuous hinges and their parts for quick reference.

Continuous hinges have many benefits. They are:

  • strong throughout their entire lengths because each knuckle is a load bearing point
  • strengthening: they increase product rigidity by supporting the full length of the application
  • easier and more precise to align than two or more butt hinges
  • attractive and uniform in appearance
  • smooth in pivotal action, providing optimal axial rotation
  • low-cost and economical, lasting through many swing cycles
  • versatile: they are available in many variations, easily customized to suit individual applications
