The Yale Revolution Window Hinge, which was first unveiled at FIT Show 2016, is the only hinge in the industry to offer this dual function, and is the ideal choice for reversible residential and commercial upper floor windows.
Thanks to its innovative, patented dual closing function, the hinge can be switched between anti-blowback and easy close functions depending on customer requirements – their preferred option can be selected at the point of installation.
This offers exclusive benefits to installers as it meets the needs of both private and public sector buildings. The advantage of onsite-configuration also means that installers can carry a smaller amount of van stock.
Paul Atkinson, Sales and Commercial Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions comments: “We’re delighted to launch the Yale Revolution window hinge, which is the only solution in the industry with this dual function. It has been designed to offer maximum versatility and security.
“Its user-friendly design allows the window to rotate fully, enabling the homeowner or occupier to easily clean both sides of the glass from within the comfort and safety of the building. This removes the risk of over-stretching, or failing from a ladder when cleaning from the outside.”
The hinge has a unique key-lockable safety restrictor, and when opening, the sash release lever must be pressed pass two restricted positions – thus avoiding the risk of the window being opened suddenly. A safety key locks the window in the desired position – outer ventilation, easy clean or safety position – to minimise the risk of injury from falling through the window.
The Revolution hinge is available in 27 sizes, ensuring a truly comprehensive range that can accommodate sash heights ranging from 300 mm to 1,780 and can form part of a PAS 24 window set.
The newly developed Revolution hinge is made in the UK, and is compatible with all three main window types; PVCu, timber and aluminium.
