So Kenny (nicest guy I've dealt with in a while, BTW) responded. They've played around with their hinges over the years, and are now pretty happy with their current double hinge on top, one on bottom set up. He says it's as strong or stronger than three separate hinges, without issues of binding putting stress in weird places due to slight misalignment of the three hinges.
He also said they are prototyping a new latch system, which I told him to put on if they were happy with it so far. No hard core testing yet, but he says it should be a lot stronger. We'll see!
