New View Windows, one of the South West of England’s leading trade and residential window fabricators and installers is realising the benefits of insisting on Dynamic 2D-C hinges from SFS intec as part of a high performance door-set, as it experiences strong demand for its range of composite doors.
A Saltash, Cornwall based company, New View Windows fabricates and installs a range of composite doors manufactured using Liniar profile systems, all of which utilise the Dynamic 2D-C hinge. It’s a combination that is enabling the company to gain a competitive edge as trade and residential customers throughout Cornwall and the South West are attracted to the combination of security, long term durability and excellent visual appeal.
As a family business serving trade and residential customers for over 30 years with the most advanced window and door systems, New View Windows understands the importance of the right window and door design and build, according to the company’s Managing Director, Tony Braddon. He says: “Having achieved PAS024 and Secured by Design on all our PVC-U entrance doors, we wanted to ensure our growing composite doors range offered a consistently high build quality, which is why we chose Liniar profiles with SFS intec hinges.
“Composite doors are ideal for the homeowner who prioritises security and durability, without compromising on aesthetics. They’re a great choice for those who wish to reduce external environmental noise, save money on heating bills and have a door that offers great weather resistance and structural rigidity. This protection against the elements is particularly important in Cornwall, being surrounded by the sea, which means the atmosphere is more corrosive than inland areas.
“Combining protection against the weather with resistance to forced intrusion led us to partner Liniar’s composite doors with SFS intec Dynamic 2D-C hinges. Our doors offer the perfect combination of secure and enduring performance.”
Rod Johnson, SFS intec’s Technical Sales Advisor, explains the key features of the hinge: “The new Dynamic 2D-C hinge has all of the same benefits of the original Dynamic range for PVC-U doors. This slimline hinge has benefits in terms of aesthetics, adjustability, security and durability, meeting PAS024 requirements plus the addition of a fire resistance assessment. It’s CE certified and easily complies with current door testing.”
With six standard colours, plus the possibility of bespoke colours to order, the Dynamic 2D-C accommodates 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, delivering “fit and forget” features that have helped SFS intec establish Dynamic 2D-C as the ideal hinge solution for flush-fit composite doors.
Rod Johnson concludes: “SFS intec is committed to producing exceptional products, and combining our hinges with top quality profiles. With excellent workmanship and installation, as demonstrated by New View Windows, this provides an attractive solution for homeowners. We’re very proud of our products and hope that New View Windows continue to see composite doors with SFS hinges grow in popularity.”
