The Trojan Group has a policy of bringing competitive hardware products to the market, so it’s no surprise that the introduction of their new Athena Door Hinge is attracting so much attention.
Tony Chadwick, Group Managing Director of Trojan explains, “As a business we are constantly looking at ways to help our customers and bring the latest innovation in hardware design to the market. The introduction of our New Athena Door Hinge is packed with patented features that makes it a real game-changer in hinge design.”
Trojan’s first aim when developing the hinge was to produce something that was exceptionally strong. The Athena Door Hinge has, amongst other strength features, a double knuckle for increased load bearing. The result is that three Athena Door Hinges have a combined carrying weight of 100kg, which makes them perfect for heavy duty applications.
Due to its intelligent design, the Athena Door Hinge is fast to fit during fabrication and is supplied pre-assembled so you can fit it straight from the box. It will also fit into any fabrication set up because one product fits all standard eurogroove systems.
The Athena Door Hinge uses full float technology which means visual alignment and easy, accurate and independent 3D adjustment with the door in the closed position, which will make life much easier when installing. It has also been designed so the door can simply be lifted on and lifted off when the hinge is being fitted.
Another key feature of the Athena Hinge is the slim aesthetically pleasing design with its unobtrusive appearance. It offers a clean finish because there are no unsightly gaps visible when adjustment has been completed, unlike other hinges on the market today. The hinge is available in White, Black, Brown Oak (UV stabilised), Polished Chrome, PVD Gold, Satin Silver and any RAL colour so will suit any decor. It’s also PAS 24 compatible.
The quality of the Athena Door Hinge is evident in its testing results. It has been corrosion tested to the requirements of BS EN 1670 and the painted finishes achieve Grade 5 and the plated finishes Grade 4. The RAL colour option has successfully achieved up to 1000 hours’ neutral salt spray testing and comes with a ten-year surface finish guarantee. The hinge conforms to BS EN 1191 and has been tested to 100,000 cycles. And like all Trojan products, it comes with a ten-year mechanical guarantee too.
The product was officially unveiled at this year’s FIT Show where it attracted a great deal of attention for its quality and innovation. Tony concludes, “Our products are designed to give fabricators and installers what they need. Early feedback suggests that the Athena Hinge will be a valuable addition to our range.”
