The quality of a hinge is determined to a great extent by the quality of the bearing. That is why ECO Schulte developed its own bearings technology especially for its hinge plates and registered it for patenting (DE 1036 1548 B4). The bearing is charasteristic: The roller is guided top and bottom on a steel ball, each mounted in two high-strength plastic trays. This specific bearing is wear, maintenance and play free and guarantees the light and smooth running of the door. The double bearing controls axial and radial forces effectively and permanently. In a series of practical test, this bearings technology was successfully tested by an independent institute for more than one million closing action. That more than guarantees lifelong, secure functioning.
