Proven by rigorous testing and product development, DuraHinge® is a more durable alternative to the existing versions of metal strand belting. This innovative belting lasts up to ten times longer than other flex-style belts. When the competitor’s belt goes around nosebars and sprockets, the strands flex at the joints and break prematurely. DuraHinge hinges around rather than flexing, which reduces metal fatigue and greatly increases belt life. Our belt components are designed with compound angles that hinge at each contact point, reducing stress and maintaining structural soundness. U.S. patent #6,530,469 European patent #1,223,119


A poultry plant upgraded to DuraHinge in their hopper. The regular flex-style belting they had been using required daily maintenance to ensure proper performance. After switching to DuraHinge, they are able to run the belt for two weeks without performing any maintenance.
