Traditional floor closers require to dig a hole in the floor to fit the box comprising the self-closing system. This can be tricky for architects and installers alike when under-floor heating is already present or in listed buildings for example. Thanks to CRL’s new range of oil dynamic hinges, planning a self-closing glass door has never been so quick, easy and cost effective. The innovative hinges comprise the self-closing system inside of their main body, removing the need for a floor closer and its box.
The hinges have adjustable closing speed and can swing in and out a full 90 degrees and stop at 0, +90 and -90 degrees. They are suitable for monolithic toughened and laminated toughened glass panels from 8mm to 13.52mm in thickness and can accommodate doors weighing up to 100kg. The range comprises of four hinges and a patch fitting closer (which also has its self-closing system inside the main body to avoid the additional box), all available in satin nickel, satin anodised and chrome finishes. It also includes a no-hold open option and a high humidity resistance in damp environments.
