Title: Housing for automatic door mechanisms having a hinged connection

Abstract: A hinged connection between a removable housing closure and a stationary housing part, wherein a terminal configuration of the housing closure has a convex molding, with a web that is contiguous with the molding and which web has a tapering cross section. Adjacent to the web there is an indentation, in which a convex molding that is on the stationary housing part and is offset at an angle of 90 degrees from a projecting leg and is connected to the projecting leg by a contiguous web that has a tapering cross section is engaged. The housing closure can thereby be pivoted with respect to the stationary housing part and re-engaged with it. Additionally, when the housing is closed, no parts project either inside or outside in the vicinity of the housing closure and the stationary housing part.
