    Hi Guys

    Can anyone perhaps help? I need a type of door lift (hinge) which pulls out and lifts up. Does anyone of you perhaps know where I can buy this type of hinge??

    Many thanks.

    It's the best you can buy, still be working in 20 years. You can also Google Blum, who is their opposition.

    Any reason why that door cant just rotate out 90 degrees?
    Normal hinge and pneumatic cylinder could do that very cheaply (latter are R8.00ea at Gelmar)

    Here's a page from a trucking spares catalogue I've worked on.
    The hinge on this page looks similar to what you're looking for except it doesn't have shocks.

    Been there, got a blank face...

    Nice option for canopy doors, especially on tanks that is not that high, or where you are taller than 1.8m At least I would not bump my head against it as it would totally be out of the way.

    Just wonder what the salt environment would do to it.

    Then again, cheap hinges from Gelmar could be a better option. Nothing wrong with replacing cheap hinges every second year.
