A premium door hinge that delivers unrivalled safety standards for its anti-trap credentials has undergone a range expansion to support demand across the mental health, health care and education sectors.
Intastop’s leading Shrouded Double Swing Hinge now benefits from a shroud which encases the hinge mechanism reducing the risk of finger entrapment and ligature issues.
“Our new Shrouded Double Swing Hinge will bring a whole new safety feature to our extensive range of hinges in our product portfolio and has unswerving reliability and compliance to fire safety standards,” said Phil Barsby Business Development Director Intastop Ltd. “We continue to develop products to support the needs of facilities managers who place building user safety at the top of their specification, refurbishment and maintenance agendas whilst balancing the practicalities of access.”
The hinge has its gears encased. It is available in a variety of finishes including anodised aluminium, wood effect. The shroud has zero pinch points making it safe for fingers and reducing ligature opportunities.
The shroud has been designed to allow the door a pivot greater than 90° in one direction and greater than 180° overall in both directions ensuring accessibility with speed and ease is possible.
Equally important, the hinge is fire safety tested to 30 minutes delivering excellent safety benefits.
Additionally, the full-length hinge is extremely easy to install and is suitable for retro-fit projects. Due to its robustness, doors do not drop during use in high traffic areas and as they are easy to clean, can play their part in infection control in the healthcare sector too.
Phil added; “We are renowned for products that help to protect doors, walls and people and ongoing product development ensures we support our customers and the challenges that they face. This innovative hinge not only protects users but also the building too; a fine example of how Intastop tackles issues experienced across a variety of sectors and finds practical, efficient solutions.”
