The £250k + contract involved Combat in replacing worn out access points throughout Tameside with bespoke high performance communal Aluminium entrance door systems. This highly skilled work required specialist hinges to meet the exacting specifications of the contract. On recommendation by leading systems company Kestrel Aluminium, Combat contacted Master Hinge Makers, Cooke Brothers for a solution.
After considering the wide choice of hinge options in the company’s Phoenix hinge range, the product that fully met the contract specifications was the Interleaf Stainless Steel Continuous hinge.
Designed to provide an ultra-narrow unobtrusive sightline between the door and frame the new Phoenix Interleaf hinge reduces the typical gap created by a traditional heavy duty continuous hinge from 12mm down to a mere 3mm, whilst the aesthetical lines of the Interleaf hinge completely fill the void between the door and frame, reducing the risk of finger trapping considerably. The new CE marked Interleaf hinges incorporate the Phoenix high performance maintenance free polymer bearings and have been successfully tested to BS EN 1935: Grade 14 (160kg) and are CERTIFIRE approved for use on fire doors.
Commenting on the choice of Interleaf hinges Mike Ankers, Director of Combat Doors said:
“From the outset we were impressed with the design and quality of the Interleaf hinges and the product certainly proved to be the perfect solution to meet this demanding specification. The team from Cooke Brothers couldn’t have been more helpful both for their advice and in meeting the delivery deadlines set by our client. We will definitely recommend Cooke’s to others and use their products on future contracts”.
