Kenrick has strengthened its range of market-leading hardware solutions with the launch of a comprehensive suite of friction stays.

Designed to combine optimum weather-sealing, security and operational performance, the friction stays are made from high grade stainless steel and are suitable for PVC-u, timber and aluminium windows of all sizes.

The new Kenrick range includes standard hinges for top hung and side hung windows, egress emergency exit hinges and egress easy-clean hinges. They are available in two stack heights – 13mm and 17mm – and a number of lengths, including 8”, 10”, 12”, 16”, 20” and 24”.

Steve Williams, Kenrick’s sales and marketing director, says: “As one of the industry’s longest established hardware suppliers, we place product quality, versatility, longevity and competitive pricing very high on our agenda. The addition of this new collection of friction stays into our range means that customers can easily satisfy all their hardware needs with top performing products that are built to last.”

The friction stays have been tested to the performance requirements of BS 6375-1:2009 (parts 1 and 2) and have been neutral salt spray tested to 240 hours to meet BS7412:2007. They have also been cycle tested to 100,000 cycles of opening and closing.

Company Overview For

Archibald Kenrick

Archibald Kenrick & Sons Ltd was founded in West Bromwich in the Black Country in 1791 and has occupied the same site ever since. During the Industrial Revolution, the business became one of the country’s foremost cast iron manufacturers, something which continued for over 150 years. In the late 1940s, technological advances meant that Kenrick modernised rapidly, introducing new manufacturing techniques such as die-casting and injection moulding. Similar but evolved techniques are still used by Kenrick today.

Kenrick currently offers a variety of products for the furniture, door and window industries including castors, locking systems, handles and hinges. The majority of these products are either made on site in West Bromwich or at their overseas factories to a high standard. The design and innovation is carried out by Kenrick’s own experienced team.

In 1990, Kenrick became part of the Spire Group. It remains committed to investing in research and development, modern production techniques, new product launches and plans significant expansion over the coming years
