It has been proven that a continuous geared aluminum hinge may last 50+ years and require little to no maintenance, saving you SUBSTANTIALLY over the life of the assembly

Geared aluminum continuous hinges have been proven to last over 25,000,000 cycles and are available to hold doors up to 1,000lbs

Geared aluminum continuous hinges have a proud history beginning in 1963 with Austin Baer, an MIT-trained engineer, who earned a patent for his design of hinge leaves with intermeshed gears. In 1968, he earned a second patent for adding thrust bearings to the original design. All geared hinges today are based on this design, which distributes the door’s weight over the entire door length rather than concentrated on two or three spots as with butt or pivot hinges. The gears allow fluid movement as the door opened and closed.

Geared aluminum continuous hinges are generally made from extruded architectural aluminum and most are anodized to resist corrosion. 
Baer's patent expired in 1985. He sold his company to a national manufacturer in 1989. 
 In 2004, a geared continuous hinge earned 60 minute Ballistic Resistance and Forced Entry certification from the United States Department of State for use in its embassies overseas.
