Technical Data

The Nico Egress Only Hinge is manufactured in stainless steel and offers excellent load bearing characteristics. It is available in 12″, 14″ and 16″ side hung variants. Slotted fixing holes in the base channel and sash bar, with a final fixing hole in each component, provide maximum sash/frame adjustment. The all stainless nose-cap is riveted on to the hinge for extra strength and rivet holes are counterbored in a 3 stage manufacturing process. This means parts are manufactured to tight tolerances and ensures reliable operation of the finished hinges.The friction slide is made from high strength glass reinforced nylon with an adjustable resistance screw to regulate friction
