SFS intec has teamed up with Smart Architectural Aluminium - the UK’s leading supplier of aluminium systems and bespoke extruded aluminium profiles – to produce a door set solution which offers ultimate strength and security, specifically for the aluminium fenestration market.
Working closely with Smart, SFS intec applied its industry expertise to produce the Dynamic 2DA hinge. This new high performance hinge has been designed to meet a challenging brief; ease of installation, increased onsite adjustment, resistance to heavy load capacities, complimentary aesthetics and to meet the requirements of both PAS 24 and PREN 1627-30 standards.
Steve Counsel, Technical Manager at Smart, said: “We have had a close working relationship with SFS intec for a number of years. Their expert technical knowledge within their field meant that they were the ideal partners to produce a bespoke hinge to fit with our double rebate door system, Alitherm Plus.
“The Dynamic 2DA hinge was designed by SFS intec specifically to exceed our requirements for the highest levels of performance for use with our door sets; primarily integral strength, increased security and a simple installation process. After putting both the hinge and door set through a rigorous testing process we are pleased to say that both passed with flying colours. We are confident that Alitherm Plus and the Dynamic 2DA hinge will deliver outstanding performance over the life time of the door set.”
Rod Johnson, Technical Sales Advisor at SFS intec, said: “The Dynamic 2DA hinge is our first hinge which has been specifically created for aluminium applications. We went back to the drawing board to ensure that we produced a component which would ideally suit its application and offer the same high performance and durability as our other hinges. We were also dedicated to manufacturing a ‘future proofed’ product which would comply with industry standards and regulations, now, and in the future.”
