Here’s an interesting BLOG POST from Dan McCourt at Southco, about hinges and (you guessed it) Industry Specifications. While this article is a few months old now, it’s a very important aspect of any design. Does your product need to meet certain IP, NEMA or NSF specifications or criteria? Would you be concerned about picking something as simple as a hinge if it meant possibly spending thousands of dollars re-certifying your product? Read the blog post!
Dan also posted several follow-up articles on hinges that are worth reading. If you have time, I encourage you to check them out. Good stuff.
