New range of friction stays

Kenrick has launched a suite of friction stays.

Designed to combine optimum weather-sealing, security and operational performance, the friction stays are made from high grade stainless steel and are suitable for PVCU, timber and aluminium windows of all sizes.

The new Kenrick range includes standard hinges for top hung and side hung windows, egress emergency exit hinges, and egress easy-clean hinges. They are available in two stack heights – 13mm and 17mm – and a number of lengths, including 8”, 10”, 12”, 16”, 20” and 24”.

Steve Williams, Kenrick’s sales and marketing director, said: “The addition of this new collection of friction stays into our range means that customers can easily satisfy all their hardware needs with top performing products that are built to last.”

The friction stays have been tested to the performance requirements of BS 6375-1:2009 (parts 1 and 2) and have been neutral salt spray tested to 240 hours to meet BS7412:2007. They have also been cycle tested to 100,000 cycles of opening and closing.
