    Reell's Model PHB hinge is designed for applications that require up to 2.79 N-m (24.7 lb-in) of torque and 360° rotation. The PHB has a smooth, quality feel, and provides consistent torque over long life, making it the right choice for larger applications.

  • Reell PHK Position Hinge

    PHK

    Versatile Flag Hinge
    The PHK features an asymmetric torque design that reduces the force required to move in one direction to 60% of that in the other direction. This can be especially effective in vertical mounting applications where it reduces the force needed to make adjustments in the upward direction, while still providing the full holding force in the downward direction.  It provides up to 5.5 N-m (48.7 lb-in) of torque with 360° rotation.
