Hinges are used to mount hatches and doors and their installation and any resulting problems can be just as varied as the uses of the hinges themselves. In many cases Elesa+Ganter offers quick solutions via additional components to make the installation of hinges even easier and more effective for a particular application.
Spacer plates perform height adjustment Gaps, differing door leaf thickness and sheet thickness or even sealants can cause the swing point contact of hinges between frames and doors to be positioned at different levels. Until now these situations required the use of washers or rings made by uneconomical piece production. GN 2370 stainless steel spacer plates provide a solution. Dimensionally designed to work with the GN237 and GN337 families of hinges they can be used individually or in combination to even out height differences. The spacer plates are available in four different thicknesses.
Plates with tapped holes replace nuts and washers GN2372 stainless steel plates with tapped holes also designed for use with the GN237 and GN337 families of hinges make the use of nuts and washers during installation unnecessary. Complex preassembly of discs and nuts and counter pressure to ensure tightening are eliminated. Instead the plate with tapped holes attached to the top side of the hinge offers additional assembly opportunities such as the ability to mount on the back side of a panel or door (see application example).
Rubber bumpers mounted directly on the hinge if a hinge requires a dampened stop and/or restricted rotation then GN 2374 rubber bumper stops for hinges are recommended. The mounting. Due to the stable cast steel frames of the rubber bumper stops, they can be installed directly with the hinges using counter used with lighter doors or in applications without dynamic loads.
