Or go bespoke;


Condition 1


This condition applies where an engineering drawing is supplied.  We will ensure that holes are pierced exactly in accordance with the drawing, by either making a piercing tool to suit the hinge, or by making the hinges from laser cut blanks.

Condition 2


This condition applies where no engineering drawing is supplied, and therefore tools have not been made to suit the hinge.  Under this condition, we will pierce holes from our standard tooling.

This will result in;

• Holes not lining up with holes in pre-drilled components

• Holes that may not be consistent from hinge to hinge

• Holes they may not be consistent from batch to batch

If you are in any doubt about piercing and/or countersinking, please contact us.
