Simple steps to help you Measure the Correct Window Hinges



  • The part you need to measure is the main running track that is fixed to the frame (A in the illustration).

  • If your size is for instance 10" but you can fit a 12" hinge in the gap then upgrade to that size. Cost wise it is only a few pennies extra but the extra length will extend the lifetime of the hinges before renewal is needed.

Remember to order the correct orientation. Below is an easy guide to show you if your window is Top Hung or Side Hung

Yes. All our window hinges come in pairs.

We can't promise that however if you have a upvc frame then its easy to put new screw holes in using self-tapping screws. Click here for screws

This is the thickness of the hinge when all the parts are closed or stacked on top of each other. Our hinges are all 13mm stack but if you need 17mm stack then our hinge packers will do the job for you.

    Good quality and easy to fit

    These hinges were recommended as the mid-range option based on their price. Whilst not as sturdy as the originals they were replacing (which were 16 years old), they are more than good enough. Smooth motion and very easy to fit.....no need to pay some to remove and replace 12 screws per window! I was quoted £150 to replace on 4 windows and did it myself for £36!

    Excellent product in fact better than the hinges we have got on the windows previousl. Ordered two at first so pleased with them another ordered 4 more. Would also like to got them very quick, the first two in a few days and the 4 was sent by special delivery which I did come the next day but the postman wanted a signature even though there was instructions where to leave them, but finally got them the next day so very good service in all and would use this company again.
