Now available from the FDB Online store are their stainless steel continuous/piano hinges in 1800mm lengths with 30 mm and 25 mm widths to provide full height support for heavy panels. Because they are fixed along the whole length of a door, they augment the rigidity of large panels and distribute the weight evenly into the frame while providing additional security, owing to their tamper-proof design. These hinges are especially suitable for simple sheet panels and can be particularly effective on top edges of large flaps, doors and access panels.
