Today’s work environment is changing, and innovative ergonomic solutions are important to remember no matter where your workspace is located.
You wouldn’t want to work in a building that’s not fire-safe, would you? Leaving your toaster strudel in the microwave too long becomes a big hazard.
So your next design -- be it a dishwasher, smoker, tanning bed, refrigerator, or another piece of equipment -- needs the support and reliability of heavy-duty industrial hinges. You’re working on your hinge design calculations and material specs, and things are getting complicated.
Driving down a country road, you’re probably going to see more small hotels and motels than huge chains. Even around major cities, new small hotel room design ideas are trending left and right.

Complex hinge design is a staple of many high-end, high-performing products. The math required to make your lid, cover, or door work as advertised can be wildly different depending on your application.
If your office or classroom is spending a good portion of its day sitting at a desk and working on a computer, you probably already know how important it is to promote correct office ergonomics. A healthy work lifestyle reduces back, neck, and eye strain, as well as the risk of desk job-related injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.
From chronic back pain to carpal tunnel syndrome, we've all seen how much damage bad ergonomics can do. Bad ergonomics, in short, are bad for business.
When most people hear “ergonomics,” they think of office workers in cubicles. But ergonomics – designing or modifying the working environment for the worker’s health and comfort – is crucial to the construction industry, too.
The way health care is delivered in hospitals is changing. Yet every medical center must still meet the same standards of exceptional care.
Gas springs and their close cousins are abundant in many industries and applications. From overhead bins in airplanes, and from cargo doors to armored vehicle doors, gas springs have a variety of applications.
