SFS hinge technology raises the bar at 2018 Fensterbau Frontale
Door hinge manufacturer SFS has reported a successful four days at the Fensterbau 2018 exhibition.
Star of the show was said to be he W-TEC 3D hinge range which SFS offers in any RAL colour to deliver a ‘visually stunning’ result in contrast or to colour match. This concealed hinge, available in two versions for standard and slim doors, is said to provide a perfect solution for aesthetically-led heavyweight timber doors used in high-end residential, commercial and hospitality applications. The quality of W-TEC 3D’s design and manufacture is said to lead the market with its stability and mechanical adjustability, enabling ‘precise’ installation and delivering long-term reliability.
Another hinge technology option for timber doorsets, that reportedly attracted strong interest from visitors, was the Easy 3D hinge. This stainless-steel hinge range is said to be well-liked by manufacturers and installers across Europe because of that fact it can be mechanically adjusted in three dimensions whilst fitted in situ. This reportedly makes it much easier to achieve a textbook timber door installation.
Alongside the Dynamic 2D, which is said to be designed to create rebated doorsets thanks to its profile-specific sash plates, was Dynamic 3D. This is said to offer the same quality and aesthetic appeal, but with an additional level of adjustability. SFS says it also took the opportunity to showcase a concept version of Dynamic 3D which could present a future solution for flush-fit doors, subject to market feedback.
Nigel Wood, director of sales of hinge and fastening technology at SFS, said: “It was fantastic to see such a high level of interest in our hinge technology range across all four days of Fensterbau.
“Our European designed and manufactured products truly have raised the bar in terms of a hinge’s build quality, adjustability and visual appeal and we look forward to expanding our relationships with UK architects, joinery manufacturers and door fabricators to help the market benefit further.”
