Total Hardware customer Lytham Windows is the latest customer to make the move from flag hinges to the new Trojan Athena sightline hinge. Due to their coastal location in Blackpool, Lytham Windows were finding that a lot of call outs were due to pitting flag hinges. The Athena, unlike a flag hinge, has a slim, unobtrusive design leaving very little exposed to the elements and has therefore reduced call outs.
Lytham Windows have 35 years experience with windows, doors and conservatories and they pride themselves on their strict standards. All of Lytham’s products are Kitemarked to British standards and all of their window and door locking mechanisms either comply with or are approved by; The Official Police Security Initiative, Glass and Glazing Federation, BFRC, or the British Board of Agrément. These high standards mean that Lytham Windows are able to offer a comprehensive 15 year guarantee on manufacturing and installations, as well as a 10 year insurance guarantee. Total Hardware has supported Lytham’s strict standards with a range of high quality, high security hardware, and the Athena is no different.
The Athena hinge is PAS 24 compatible, corrosion tested to BS EN 1670 Grade 5 and has been designed to aid fabricators and installers. The hinge is packaged pre-assembled and ready to fit which dramatically speeds up the fitting process. It has also been designed so that the height and lateral adjustments are achievable with the door closed, for visual alignment.
Trojan has also launched a heavy duty Athena hinge for composite doors. The double knuckle design gives increased load bearing; therefore 3 hinges are able to carry up to 100Kg, making it ideal for large or triple glazed composite doors. As well as this Trojan are planning to launch a stainless steel version of the Athena, ideal for companies such as Lytham.
Total Hardware is committed to supplying its customers with the latest innovations in hardware, and the Athena hinge is the latest addition to their product portfolio. The feedback from their customers has been extremely positive, with many stating that consumers preferred the slim design to the flag hinge.
