Captive audience

Kenrick is reported to be experiencing ‘sustained high demand’ for its Captive door hinge. Andy Meakin, sales and marketing manager at Kenrick, said: “The Captive door hinge has become an industry classic that is continuing to attract new customers thanks to our commitment to continuous innovation and intelligent product development.” 

The Captive door hinge is constructed with a zinc die-cast body with stainless steel pin and has been designed to be a ‘versatile and valuable’ component that meets the requirements of PAS24.

It fits over rebate sizes from 17mm to 22mm and it has an 80kg weight capacity with three hinges and a 120kg weight capacity on four hinges.

According to Kenrick, fitting is made easy because there is a plus or minus 2.5mm compression that’s pre-set during fitting, plus or minus 5mm horizontal adjustment and a plus 6mm and minus 2mm vertical adjustment.

With a ten-year mechanical guarantee, the hinge is tested to 100,000 cycles and has achieved a minimum of 240 hours salt spray testing for the paint finish and 480 hours salt spray testing for the lorica finish, which both exceed the requirements of BS EN 1670:2007.

Recent innovations include a new compact design between the body and flag section that deliver improved aesthetics.

Andy commented: “The Captive door hinge is a renowned industry favourite, but these latest developments demonstrate we will always innovate so our customers can be confident they’re choosing the best the market has to offer.”
