Ganter standards experts are used to providing unconventional Ganter-standard application solutions for a wide range of applications. After all, the goal is to make it as easy as possible for the customer to use standard elements by means of illustrative product descriptions. It is quite normal that every now and then, a 180° turn around the corner must be considered.

In the truest sense of the word, this requirement also applies to the Stainless Steel-Multiple-joint hinges GN 7237, which are now included in the Ganter product line. Although they are installed to be space-saving and vandalism-proof inside the housing they allow a 180° opening angle of the flaps, hatches and doors. This helps achieve optimum accessibility to the housing interior and at the same time, it avoids the blocking of escape routes by open doors, for example. Moreover, the housing exteriors remain free of attachments that do not match the design or that should be avoided entirely in the interests of easy cleaning.

The Stainless Steel-Multiple-joint hinges are made up of fixing angle pieces, which are mounted on the housing or the door, and an intervening 7-speed, clearance-free, self-lubricated joint mechanism. Thanks to the movement of the joint mechanism designed by simulation software, when opening, for example, a flap is first slightly lifted and then swung by 180°.

Maximum flexibility in installation: Long holes in the mounting bracket and spacer plates make the hinge adjustable on three levels. For easy mounting, threaded plates and spacer plates are available as accessories.

To meet more complex applications with specific opening or motion sequences, Ganter also offers custom-made solutions that go beyond conventional hinge usages, as required, with a 4- or 10-fold joint mechanism as a lifting or pull-out system.
