Speedy installation with new 3D hinges

SFS intec has launched two new CE marked, fire rated hinges for heavy doors which feature an innovative 3D adjustment. The Just 3D and Easy 3D hinges, for flush and rebated doors respectively, can be installed and easily altered across height, length and gasket pressure, providing guaranteed long term functionality.

The new 3D hinges have high corrosion resistance to EN 1670 and include self lubricating bushes to provide a trouble free, long term operation. Both systems come with milling jigs and inserts, allowing for easy application of the hinges to most profile types.

Nigel Wood, Business Development Manager at SFS intec, commented: “The use of heavier doors as a result of energy saving trends and the imminent green deal means the industry needs a hinge which is increasingly more durable. We have developed the high performance 3D range, to give installers and fabricators products which can withstand high loads and are really simple to install.

“Unlike inferior low cost imports, the Just 3D and Easy 3D have been designed and built at our own manufacturing facilities, so we can keep a close eye on quality control. The 3D range is designed with long term use in mind, so investing in purpose designed quality hinges, enables all within the supply chain to benefit from low maintenance and replacement costs in the long term.”

The Just 3D is designed to be mounted into steel, solid timber and cover flush fit door frames. All three dimensions can be adjusted by ±2.5 mm and once installed is simple for one person to make adjustments using a 4mm Allen key. Ideal for heavy doors, the system has achieved a load rating in excess of 100KG when tested against 200,000 cycles in a durability test, in accordance with standards EN 1935.

Available in 304 grade stainless steel material, the Just 3D is suitable for entrance doors in corrosion exposed and clinical environments.

The Easy 3D system is specifically developed for rebated doors where a heavy load of up to 160 KG is needed. Awarded a CE certification by the IFT Institute in Rosenheim, an industry recognised research institute.

The system uses a special 3-step bolt which ensures extraction resistance levels of over 1500kg. Available in eight different colours, the Easy 3D exceeds the security requirements of PAS 024.

Both Just 3D and Easy 3D are approved for use on fire doors.
