Frequently Asked UPVC Window Hinges Questions
Top Hung – the handle is at the bottom of the opening part of the window.
Side Hung– the handle is at the left or right of the opening part of the window.
Restricted – these have a small catch in them to restrict how far the window opens. This can be pressed to allow the window to open fully.
Fire Escape – will allow the window to open wide enough to allow emergency access. All fire escape hinges should only be fitted to a side opening window (handle at the side).
Do your window hinges come in pairs?
Yes. All our window hinges come in pairs. You should always change both hinges to ensure that the window opens correctly.
Will my screws line up?
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.
Are they easy to fit?
This depends on your level of DIY skills but most people should be able to manage. On larger windows a set of suction cups may help with lifting and holding the window.
What does stack height mean?
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.
