A firm hold for a heavy lift
The "Variant VX" hinge system from Simonswerk securely holds the heavy doors of the Wälderhaus Hamburg.
MAXIMUM LOAD CAPACITY FOR SAFETY AND FUNCTIONALITY
The safety requirements and obligations set by public authorities and building promoters are constantly on the rise. Noise- and smoke-protection requirements specify the dimensions for doors, escape routes, fire compartments and functional units. The trend towards greater spaciousness in architecture, and the builders' desire for more comfort often increase the weight and size of doors. This increased load capacity leads to maximum stress on the doors and the hinges used.
GUARANTEED SAFETY WITH MAXIMUM LOAD-BEARING CAPACITY
Extremely high demands in terms of load-bearing capacity, function and design require perfectly designed products and first-class execution. VARIANT VX branded hinges are distinguished by having the ideal features to give "heavyweight" doors the necessary support. To satisfy the requirements in respect of maximum load capacity safely and reliably, the hinge specialists at SIMONSWERK have developed new, heavy-duty hinges with load values of up to 400 kg.
THE HEAVY-DUTY HINGE VARIANT® VX
The increased material thickness, the specially welded knuckle and an optimised coordination with the receiver make the knuckle hinge system VARIANT VX quite simply the heavy-duty hinge. All the different models naturally have the existing features such as 3D adjustability, maintenance-free slide bearings and the versatility of use with timber, steel and aluminium frames.
CUSTOM COMBINATION POSSIBILITIES
With more stringent construction requirements, the interaction of all the different structural parts, and the conformation of every individual part, is crucially important. The VARIANT VX heavy-duty range offers the familiar flexible combination possibilities of hinge, receiver and cover – together with customised solutions.
