BakFlip Hinges:BakFlip truck bed covers are comprised of a series of panels that are connected to each other with a seamless rubber hinge made from EPDM. This rubber cannot corrode in extreme temperatures and can be folded back and forth for years without any noticeable wear at all. Unlike piano hinges or metal hinges that can leak, corrode or rust, the BakFlip�s patented hinge system is completely resistant to all temperatures and the most torrential weather conditions.
BakFlip Panels:BakFlip panels are laminated from either impact resistant plastic or rugged aircraft grade aluminum. After the panels are crafted to the correct size they are framed with a patented aluminum frame that renders BakFlip the strongest folding truck bed cover available anywhere in the world. The frames around the panels are also the receptacle for the rubber hinges that simply slide into the panel frame with a unique tongue and groove design. The panel frames act as a double insurance against any possible water from penetrating or bypassing a hinge. BakFlip tonneau cover panels cannot be cut with a blade. Even though the hinges are rubber, they are encased from the underside in solid metal and can therefore also not be penetrated with a knife or sharp blade.
