Residence Collection doors go Dynamic with SFS hinge technology

Precision-engineered Dynamic 2D door hinges by SFS are helping The Residence Collection lead the market with its premium window and door range. Having rapidly established itself as the favoured brand for high-end windows and doors, The Residence Collection open-in doors are complemented by premium quality Dynamic 2D door hinges manufactured by SFS.

Residence 9 authentically replicates the traditional style of 19th century flush sash windows, whilst the Residence 7 and Residence2 Collections provide the market with more contemporary, yet equally visually stunning windows and doors. SFS were chosen as a partner for their inward opening doors, with their Dynamic 2D hinges providing the perfect blend of strength, security, aesthetics and long term reliability thanks to a highly-engineered construction and bespoke sash plates. This means the installer can ‘fit and forget’.

Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director of The Residence Collection said: “Developing The Residence Collection has brought together the best technical minds, with SFS playing a key role. It was vitally important to get the door hinges right, to reflect the quality of the Residence Collection brand – and that’s why we partnered with SFS for their Dynamic 2D hinges. These hinges have enabled us to create open-in doors which combine fantastic looks with smooth opening and closing, and the long term assurance of robustness and security.”

As a manufacturer of door hinges, SFS was able to work closely with The Residence Collection to achieve the perfect match. By developing bespoke sash plates, SFS has ensured a precise and secure attachment to the open-in sash for an attractive result that characterises the brand and protects against door ‘sagging’ over the door’s long, hassle-free lifespan.

Dynamic 2D’s design and build quality also enables Residence Collection doors to offer enhanced security, being successfully tested to the requirements of BS-PAS 024 and allowing for Secured by Design licensing.

Nigel Wood, Director of Sales - Hinge and Fastening Technology at SFS adds: “The Residence Collection is a superb portfolio of window and door systems that we are delighted to make a contribution to and we are thrilled to be working closely with them.”
