Timber and PVCu window fabricator Norscot is hugely impressed at the ease of fitting and enhanced function of the new, fully reversible Yale Revolution Hinge, available exclusively from Sealco.
With long-term manufacturing relationships with many local authorities, Norscot has a big need for fully reversible hinges, which are ideal for multi-storey developments where safe access to the outside of windows for cleaning is vital.
Supplied by top independent UK hardware distributor Sealco – who worked with Yale to develop the product – the new Yale Revolution Hinge brings maximum versatility in installation thanks to its unique patented dual function restrictor.
This means the hinge can be switched between anti-blowback and easy close functions. That gives housing associations, property developers or commercial owners the ability to select their preferred option at the point of installation, and to change it easily in the future without refitting the window.
Norscot has successfully trialled the Yale Revolution Hinge on timber windows for a local authority in Scotland.
“We’re really happy with Sealco’s new Yale Revolution Hinge. We’ve used fully reversible hinges from Yale in the past and this is a real advance in terms of its convenience,” says Callum Grant, Commercial Director at Norscot.
“The movement of the hinge works like a dream, with full rotation so it can be easily cleaned from inside the building. The integral locking makes it really secure, and switching between the two functions is a simple matter of removing or replacing the restrictor, which can be done in seconds.
“It fits really well, our fabricators are happy with the installation and feedback from the customer is that the hinge easily meets the specification.
“The new hinge easier to specify – rather than us needing separate supplies of anti-blowback or easy close hinges, we’ll only to order the hinge size to suit the installation. Sealco stocks 27 different sizes, so there’s plenty of choice.
“We’ve also had great support from Sealco in terms of installation advice to make sure we’re getting the best from the hinge.”
