Applications and Industries for Spring Hinges

Spring hinges are unique because they incorporate the energy in a spring to do more than the standard hinge. In addition to the range of motion provided by most hinges, spring hinges return the door to its position after it has been opened. In most cases, this means that the spring pushes the door shut, but spring hinges can be installed to keep a door open as well.

There are many industries and environments in which this unique property is necessary, including:

  • Medical
  • Point of Purchase Displays
  • Small Enclosures
  • Transportation
  • Military

Materials and Finishes for Spring Hinges

At Midlake, our customers can choose from a variety of materials and finishes to create the perfect spring for their project or needs. Some of those options include:

  • Cold Rolled Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Special finishes (anodized finish, plated finish, passivated finish, power coated, and more)


Midlake manufactures custom hinges that are just right for the job you are facing. We also help you consider the following questions as they relate to your project:

  • How much torque is required?
  • Will the spring hinge be normally opened or closed?
  • What is the life cycle of the spring?
  • What is the operating arc?
  • If the spring fails in the field, can it be replaced?
  • Weight of key components?
  • Will the hinge require embossing to accommodate the spring legs?

We can walk you through these considerations, so it becomes clear that the best hinge for your project is one that is perfectly designed to suit the exact environment in which it will be placed. At Midlake, we can make that vision a reality, ensuring that you get the product you need.
