HARDWARE Bringing Success to Business Duo » » IN RESPONSE TO A HUGE DEMAND, SFS intec have expanded its Dynamic 2D hinge range to provide the ideal hinge for composite doors for the commercial, new build and residential sectors. Since its launch a year ago, SFS intec’s new Dynamic 2D-C hinge has been widely accepted by the market as an innovative and effective design solution. During the development of the Dynamic 2D-C, SFS intec worked closely with Safeware, (part of the Epwin Group), to ensure the hinge perfectly suited the Epwin composite door Profile. Paul Hinds, Sales Manager at Safeware, explains why his company chose SFS intec’s hinge for their composite doors. “We have worked closely with SFS over the last 10 years. We have been impressed by the company’s design and production capabilities and technical support, which we find to be of the highest standard. Following extensive testing of the Dynamic 2D-C we knew that this hinge was of an extremely high quality and performed exceptionally well with our composite door profile. We believe that the performance, aesthetic and installation benefits of the Dynamic 2D-C has supported growth of composite doors”. 132 » MAY 2017 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M Rod Johnson, SFS intec’s Technical Sales Advisor, explains the key features of the product: “The new Dynamic 2D-C hinge has all of the same benefits of the original Dynamic range for PVCu doors. This slimline hinge has the aesthetics, adjustability, security and durable performance, meeting PAS024 requirements and with the addition of a fire resistance assessment. It’s CE certified and easily complies with current door testing so it forms part of our accreditations which is a strong benefit to our commercial customers. 6 standard colours answer the growing trend for coloured profiles. As with the rest of the Dynamic 2D range, this new hinge has a unique patented lateral adjustment of +/- 3mm, with double pin design that gives +/- 4mm up and down. Its high load carrying capacity (40kg) means the door will not drop or sag. These “fit and forget” features have helped SFS establish it as the ideal hinge solution for composite doors”. Select Windows, an award-winning family- run business in Walsall, West Midlands, have also enjoyed success with composite door sales and were the first Safeware customer to take on the Dynamic 2D-C. They now use this hinge on all their composite doors. Nigel Court, Operations Manager at Select Windows, comments, “As a company, we have always championed quality and performance. We chose this hinge to enhance the technical performance and styling of our doors. But it’s also a more secure fix and the adjustment process is simple and makes our installers’ lives easier. Its high performance makes it an ideal hinge for our commercial and domestic customers and so we now supply all our composite doors with Dynamic 2D-C hinges. Our business is doing well and that’s mostly down to choosing high-performance compatible hardware products for integrated systems, an extensive range in a variety of styles and finishes and, last but not least, an excellent customer service.” Rod Johnson concludes, “SFS are committed to producing exceptional products, the Dynamic 2D-C hinge is a positive development in composite door hinge design and is a great example of how good relationships help define and promote high-quality products in the industry. We’re very proud of our products and hope to see composite doors with SFS hinges continue to grow in popularity”.
