Program 1056 180° Screw-on hinge without hinge pin

January 31, 2023

Designed to provide the same performance as the existing EMKA 1056 hinge but at reduced cost and enabling lift off door operation. This novel approach to simplification of design suits flush mounted doors and may be interchanged with the existing 1056 design with no need to modify drawings or production.

 

The screw-on hinge does not need the usual hinge pin by virtue of its novel design which incorporates the pin into the two separate leaves of the hinge in such a way that they can be inserted at the 270° position then become securely interlocked when the hinge is closed to 180°. This feature also enables simple door removal when required.

 

On the one hand, this results in significant cost advantages compared to conventional screw-on hinges with hinge pins. On the other hand, the design enables tool-free assembly within a few seconds. To do this, the two identical hinge halves are first inserted into each other in the 270° position. The fitter then brings the assembled hinge halves into the intended 180° position. Both halves are already firmly connected to each other, even without a hinge pin. In the 180° position, the hinge is then fixed to the intended application area with countersunk screws.
