Dynamic 2D hinges help Seal-Lite deliver quality Swish doorsets


Paul Hinds, National Sales Manager at Safeware, with Jim Shearn, Co-owner of Seal-Lite Group, and Rod Johnson, Area Sales Manager at SFS.

Leading South West fabricator and installer Seal-Lite Group is gaining an important competitive edge for its PVC-U doorsets through a mix of aesthetics, quality and reliability by combining the Swish profile with Dynamic 2D hinges by SFS.

The Clevedon-based company, which serves trade and retail customers throughout the South West of England, produces more than 300 PVC-U doorsets every month, all featuring Dynamic 2D hinges supplied by Safeware. The combination of the Swish profile design and the Dynamic 2D’s bespoke hinge sash plate delivers excellent visual appeal in a robust, secure doorset in which Seal-Lite customers can have complete long-term confidence.

Seal-Lite Group Managing Director, Chris Shearn, said: “The quality of our doorsets, and all the products we manufacture, depends on choosing the right components and system, and our excellent customer feedback to date suggests that our new specification for PVC-U doors is ticking all the boxes. Switching to the Swish system has enabled us to achieve an important uplift in quality, and one that has been amplified through our decision to use Dynamic 2D hinges.

“SFS provided excellent technical support from the outset to ensure the hinges provide us with that ‘fit and forget’ solution, which is so important for customer satisfaction and for protecting our reputation. The hinges also mean we can provide the assurance of Secured by Design on our doorsets, and the ability to colour match with a durable finish gives our doorsets a visual appeal that sets us apart.”

SFS – a global leader in the design and manufacture of door hinges – is a long-established supplier to the Epwin Group’s hardware specialist business Safeware. This organisation offers a ‘one stop shop’ for fabricators of all the window and door systems produced by the Epwin Group, providing a simplified supply chain with easy access to the highest quality hardware and technical support.

Paul Hinds, National Sales Manager at Safeware, comments: “We’ve stocked the Dynamic 2D hinge ever since it was launched in the UK and it continues to impress our fabricator customers, whether it’s a Swish profile or any of the Epwin Group systems. The excellent results that the Seal-Lite Group is achieving with the Swish system and Dynamic 2D hinge combination is a clear demonstration of the technical excellence that lies behind these products, particularly in respect of the system-specific sash plate developed by SFS.”
