TESTED TO LAST SIX DECADES:
Reduce maintenance costs and hassles. Independent lab tests on an FRP door prove SELECT hinges withstand 25 million cycles — more than 50 years of high-traffic use. Pair-Matched™ hinge leaves, lifetime lubrication and anodizing after machining deliver the longest life of any continuous hinge.
Because SELECT geared continuous hinges have proven themselves in independent testing, we offer the industry's only Continuous Warranty. It covers any failure of our aluminum geared continuous hinges — with no expiration date — as long as they are properly installed. Durability and worry-free performance … guaranteed in writing. The warranty that never ends for the hinge that never quits.
MATERIAL: Extruded 6063 T6 aluminum alloy with self-lubricating polyester thrust bearings.
