Opening the door to colour

The new W-Tec 3D+ hinge by SFS allows designers to rethink the visual impact of the hinge within the doorset, providing the option to colour contrast for bold aesthetics, or harmonise the hinge’s colour to complement the door and frame.

European designed and built, W-Tec 3D+ is a premium quality hinge that offers three-dimensional mechanical adjustability to enable precise installation. It can also be used for fire doors with a rating of up to 60 minutes, subject to appropriate doorset testing.

It is designed for heavyweight timber doors up to 200kg, which are fitted into timber or steel frames, and are typically suited to high-end commercial, hospitality and residential applications.

The scope of applications for doorsets built with W-Tec 3D+ hinges is expanding all the time, the company said, with luxury hotels in Mallorca and Turkey just two of the projects which are already benefiting.

SFS manufactures W-Tec 3D+ hinges in any RAL colour. Two versions are available for standard and slim doors, both providing reliable stability and durability through SFS’s seven-axis kinematic mechanism. This uses three levers to handle the weight of the door that keeps the door straight and prevents elliptical movement when opening and closing. The result is minimum wear and tear, even when door closers are fitted.

W-Tec 3D+ is part of a range of high performance door hinges by SFS which provide solutions for every kind of door. This includes the Easy 3D hinge, a stainless steel hinge range that is popular among timber door manufacturers and installers across Europe.
