24 • INDUSTRYNEWS PROUD SPONSORS OF THIS PAGE NEW GCC TRIED AND TESTED CORROSION RESISTANCE HINGES » » HOPPE (UK) HAS ADDED two new hinges tried and tested in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to its AR8180 range. The range includes three different stainless steel material grades that cover all levels of required application, the two newest being the 304 and 316. The grade 304 can be used on internal doors within humid climates. Grade 316 is the ideal choice for external doors that are exposed to humid climates. It’s also suitable for doors on coastal or marine applications, or on buildings with a high chlorine level such as swimming pools. Grade 201 can be specified for many internal doors that aren’t exposed to the outside Karen Nelson, business development manager at HOPPE (UK), said: “The GCC has much higher levels of humidity than the UK and specifiers use the 304 as standard. We can therefore be confident that the AR8180 hinges will deliver our UK customers proven corrosion resistance.” All hinges are tested to grade 13 of the European standard EN1935 and are CE marked and CERTIFIRE tested so have been tested on 30, 60, 90 and 120 minute timber and 240 minute steel fire doors. They are also available with intumescent kits to meet the conditions of the hinges’ fire test evidence.
