hardware& security sponsored by Withstanding the Force Secured by Design (SBD), is the official UK Police flagship initiative set up in essence with the objective of ‘designing out crime’ and focuses on the design and security for new and refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks, reducing the vulnerability of people by removing security issues that may be inherent in existing product design. »»SFS intec is committed to producing exceptional products that are compliant with regulations and by working with SBD to design products that exceed current standards. In fact, in recent PAS-024 testing held at a UCAS approved test centre earlier this year, a PVCu residential door fitted with SFS intec’s Dynamic 2D hinges, withstood 14kN - more than three times the force required to pass the test. By using SFS intec hinges, installers benefit from ease of adjustment and get the peace of mind that they will not be required to rectify future problems due to failing hinges. Dynamic 2D hinges not only far exceed the demands of PAS 024 (SBD), but also offers a 4mm downward adjustment to cater for the increased use of low thresholds. Pheonix Doors, one of the UK’s leading independent PVCu and GRP composite door manufacturer has now changed the specification of all its products to feature both the Dynamic 2D and the Dynamic 2D-F, which is a custom hinge offering all the benefits of the Dynamic 2D for flush doorsets. Phoenix Doors Sales Director, Haydon Statham commented: “We have every confidence Dynamic 2D and 2D-F will prove a success with our range of doors. As a company, we manufacture in excess of 1400 PVCu door panels per week and 400 GRP composite doors. We always aim to deliver quality products.” Distinction Doors, one of the largest composite door slab suppliers in the UK, chose to switch specification to SFS intec’s Dynamic 2D hinge for use on its new 70mm twin rebate composite door. Dave Walker, Technical Director at Distinction Doors commented: “When selecting a hinge, it was important that we chose a manufacturer with a reliable and high performance product which would pass the testing requirements of PAS-24, whilst ‘a PVCu residential door fitted with SFS intec’s Dynamic 2D hinges, withstood 14KN - more than three times the force required to pass the test’ providing high end aesthetic appeal with adjustability to aid installers.” “The attractive, slimline design and easy adjustability meant this hinge nicely complimented the door-set. We tested the hinge on our 70mm composite door leaf secured to a PVCu outer frame, and found it could pass PAS-24 test requirements with ease.” ‘the Dynamic 2D hinge has rapidly become one of the market-leading hinges for PVCu and twin rebated composite door-sets’ The Dynamic 2D hinge has rapidly become one of the market-leading hinges for PVCu and twin rebated composite door-sets. Dynamic 2D-F shares the same aesthetic and installation principles to offer consistency and familiarity in fabricator product ranges and production processes.
