ERA launches new Fab & Fix PVCu door hinge designed for a fast-fit

ERA, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of home security and fenestration products, announces the launch of its fast-fit Fab&Fix Classic PVCu door hinge, designed for all major PVCu door profiles.

Offering PAS 24:2022 compliance, the fully adjustable 3D hinge has been designed with ease of installation in mind, with an under 60-second fabrication time. The hinge is supplied fully assembled, for speed of fit with a fast fix jig available to support the fabrication process.

In addition, it offers an excellent range of on-site adjustment for installation teams, with each hinge supplied with the adjustment detail on the flag of the hinge, providing flexibility and easy access during the installation process.

This latest addition to the Fab&Fix range has been tested on-site at ERA’s UKAS test house to over 300,000 cycles for durability and in accordance with BS EN 1670: 2007 NSST 480 hours.

With a discreet, slim aesthetic and a double knuckle feature, the Classic hinge looks great on any style of PVCu. The specifically designed hooked flag wraps around the body to protect the flag when under attack, protecting the body screw and hinge from access.

Available in a choice of traditional and contemporary finishes, and part of the perfectly matching range of suited door and window hardware from Fab&Fix. The Classic hinge can also be colour matched to a range of RAL numbers, which means that manufacturers can provide their customers with a wide range of options to suit their individual preferences.

For added assurance, the Classic Fab&Fix PVCu hinge comes with a 10 year mechanical guarantee and can be used as part of the PAS 24 package of hardware within the ERA Total Security Guarantee. Secured By Design (SBD) accredited, the Classic Fab&Fix PVCu door hinge joins a wide range of ERA products recognised to deter and reduce crime under the Police Preferred Specification scheme, offering peace of mind to manufacturers and end-users.

Sarah Knight, Technical Product Manager at ERA, said: “We are thrilled to introduce the Fab&Fix Classic PVCu hinge to our range of hardware for PVCu doors and windows. We understand that every second counts, that’s why our new Classic hinge offers you even faster fabrication. Fully assembled, fast to fit with sustainable line side bulk packaging, it’s a PAS 24 hinge you can fit and forget.”
