Storm Balanced Hinges

Storm Inline

A self-balancing hinge range achieving high gust loading performance on projecting top and side hung windows

Features

  • Can be used on top hung vents up to 120kg and 2.2m high
  • Can be used on side hung vents up to 47kg and 0.84m wide
  • Full Technical and Sales Support available
  • Manufactured from Austenitic* stainless steel for high corrosion resistance
  • 12 Year Guarantee (details available upon request)
  • Standard, offset and egress variants available
  • Suitable for 16mm-18mm hardware cavity
  • Asymmetric stainless steel end cap and end point provide superior gust load resistance
  • Composite stainless steel and plastic slider for strength and maximum wear resistance
  • Optional cam adjustment device to aid final on site alignment of heavy top hung vents

*Austenitic 304 stainless steel for high corrosion resistance

Specification

  • Reference AAMA 904, AAMA 910, BS 6375-2 and EN 1670

Note: As with all types of friction hinges, friction cannot be provided until the slider moves, therefore when limiting the opening of top hung vents to angles of 10º or less, a separate device will be required to prevent the window from closing.

It is strongly recommended that large awning/projected top hung vents are restricted to opening angles of less than 45º. Between 30º to 45º the window will become self-closing. A separate restrictor device will be required e.g. SR8 and SR16.

    Every effort is made to maintain up to date manufacturers literature, however our vendors reserve the right to revise product specifications as they see fit, without prior or formal notification.

    In many cases product testing, by others, may be required to ensure performance expectations are met.
