SFS Intec hinges gives Bowater doors dynamic dimension
Leading composite door manufacturer Bowater Doors has extended its use of SFS intec’s Dynamic door hinges to ensure its Kingsbury flush fit and Duo twin-rebated door-sets offer customers optimum quality and performance.
Bowater Doors switched to the Dynamic 2D hinge soon after its launch in 2005 to create twin-rebated composite doors which deliver long term operational reliability and excellent visual appeal with built-in strength and security.
With the additional fabrication and installer benefits proving Dynamic 2D to be a runaway success in production and in the market, Bowater Doors has now changed the specification of its Kingsbury flush-fit doors to feature the Dynamic 2D-F. This is a custom hinge which offers all the benefits of the Dynamic 2D platform for single seal door-sets.
Duo and Kingsbury door-sets have established a great reputation in the market and are supplied extensively to the newbuild and refurbishment social housing sector, private housebuilders and retail market. Bowater offers its door-sets in a wide variety of contemporary and traditional styles and colours, with a complete suite of high performance hardware which can include a specification using Dynamic hinges to the enhanced security PAS-024 standard.
Bowater Doors operations manager John Oliver says: “Dynamic 2D has always offered us an excellent solution for our Duo twin-rebated door-sets and we have every confidence Dynamic 2D-F will prove the same success for our Kingsbury doors. Early market feedback is extremely positive and we are delighted with the ease with which we’ve been able to integrate Dynamic 2D-F into our fabrication lines.
“Our reputation is vitally important so we always aim to deliver quality products which perform well in-use over a long and largely maintenance-free service life. That’s why we don’t cut corners and trust only reliable hardware manufacturers like SFS intec who are committed to working closely with us to keep our door-sets at the forefront of the market.”
The Dynamic 2D hinge has rapidly become one of the market-leading hinges for PVC-U 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.
All Dynamic hinges are precision engineered in Europe and available in a range of standard colours, including matt chrome and contemporary grey. SFS intec also offers an aesthetic solution for outward opening doors where the barrel and sash plate colours are different to match the frame and door sash finishes.
