The Hodge Advantage

We stand behind our doors

  • Over 100 years of engineering and experience are built into each Hodge quick-opening door.
  • Doors lock and unlock by the rotation of a locking ring only.
  • Sealing flanges and O-ring gasket construction provides a leak-proof static seal. This static seal provides instantaneous sealing - Guaranteed!
  • Rotating ring and head wedges are custom fitted in pairs for accuracy assuring equal gasket compression.
  • All fabrications are done in accordance with the ASME Code.
  • A rugged stiffening ring serves as the mounting plate of the door hinge and helps prevent distortion to the vessel and sealing flanges despite heat, pressure, vacuum, and weight.
  • A set screw arrangement on the hinge assembly affords quick and easy adjustment in all planes and maintains the door in correct alignment.
  • The touch of a button can unlock even the largest doors in a timely manner.
