Home / Reading Hidden Hinge Technology

The hinge is one of the most important parts of the door. It gets a lot of use every day as you open and close the door on the job site, so it is worthwhile to invest in a hinge design that will last.

Don’t settle for an ordinary hinge. At Reading Truck Body, we created a hinge technology that goes a step further to change what hinges can do. Our patented Hidden Hinge system outshines similar products in the industry with its strength. After 60,000 cycles during testing, our Hidden Hinge was as good as new. Plus, it takes 30 minutes or less to install.

Read on to learn more about how the Hidden Hinge will improve the doorframe of your vehicles, and order your hinge systems from Reading Truck Body today.

What Is a Hidden Hinge?

The Hidden Hinge is revolutionary in hinge systems, created and patented by Reading Truck Body. Its construction is unique in this industry, so you won’t find a similar product anywhere else.

Every design aspect of the hinge speaks to its durability and strength. Each hinge is 3.5 pounds, constructed with 10-gauge steel and stainless steel pins. It is coated in zinc, E-coat and powder coat. Because it bolts to the internal door panel and door jam, you can’t see the hinge from the outside, making it “hidden.” It’s the only six-way adjustable hinge in the industry, allowing the hinge to move in, out, up, down, left and right.

Reasons to Install Hidden Hinge Systems on Your Fleet

The Hidden Hinge service body hinges provide many benefits to the door system of your service vehicle. The Hidden Hinge is installed on the inside of the door, giving your door a flush look. Plus, it is impossible to tamper or pry at the hinge.

Unlike other hinge systems, the Hidden Hinge will last a long time. The steel construction allows for wear resistance through even the highest amounts of usage. Because minimal lubrication is required, the hinge will always open and close with ease. The six-way fit makes it easy to adjust the hinge for a custom fit. As your door is used over the years, you’ll know that your hinge will always work.

The three-coat system provides three distinct levels of protection for the life of your Hidden Hinge. With the powder coating as the top layer, you can color match. When the door is open, your hinges will blend right into the interior of the compartment. The Hidden Hinges have an easy installation process, resulting in little downtime, so your fleet can get back to business quickly.

Our Hidden Hinges have a six-year limited warranty to give you peace of mind during installation. We are confident that you’ll love the Reading Hidden Hinge technology, so order yours today.
