Bifold Constant Torque Hinge Offers Improved Control of Fold-Out Tables

Southco has expanded its successful line of position control hinges with a new solution designed for fold-out tables used in passenger transit interior applications. Southco’s AH-2E Bifold Constant Torque Hinge uses friction to increase control of 180 degree fold-out tables, preventing table flaps from falling open during operation and improving the end user experience.

Southco’s AH-2E Bifold Constant Torque Hinge provides consistent, smooth operation, allowing passengers to safely position fold-out tables on moving vehicles such as trains, airplanes, and motor coaches. The constant torque feature holds the table in position at any angle, preventing the flap from falling while the vehicle is in motion. With improved aesthetics and enhanced reliability, the AH-2E is an ideal upgrade from traditional free-swinging hinges and dampening devices.

With its flush mount design, the AH-2E Bifold Constant Torque Hinge occupies minimal application space and allows a table to be deployed to a secure horizontal position and folded and stowed flat. Constructed of robust materials, the AH-2E delivers reliable, maintenance-free performance and delivers enhanced safety, with its controlled motion preventing trapped fingers and flush design eliminating pinch points along the joint.
