This innovative design lasts significantly longer than other flex-style belts
- Hinges rather than flexing
- Lasts 10x longer than traditional flex-style belts
- Eliminates edge curling, snags and tangling
As proven by rigorous testing and product development, DuraHinge® belting 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. But DuraHinge actually hinges around rather than flexing, which reduces metal fatigue and dramatically increases belt life. Our belt components are designed with compound angles that hinge at each contact point, reducing stress and maintaining structural soundness.
This design also enhances the true tracking nature of the belt by providing better tracking, with no edge curling, snags, or tangling.
DuraHinge is 30% stronger, made from fully-hardened, spring-tempered stainless steel which adds damage and stress resistance.
1/2″, 1/4″ and 3/8″ pitches available with wire diameters ranging from 0.50″ to 0.92″.
DuraHinge® Belt components are designed with compound angles that hinge at each contact point, reducing stress and maintaining structural soundness. This design also enhances the true tracking nature of the belt.
In the competitor’s belt, the interaction of the wires in a simple z-bend flex-style belt stress one another when the belt goes around a shaft, causing metal fatigue and premature failure. Gaps are guaranteed to make the belt shimmy and mis-track, except under perfectly ideal conditions.
