Nico Standard Permanent Restrictor Hinge

The Nico Standard Permanent Restrictor Hinge is a simple and effective way to restrict the opening of a window to a maximum of 100mm, in accordance with BS8213-1:2004. When used with tamper proof screws it acts as a permanent restrictor, and it is able to withstand the load bearing forces required in BS EN 14351 and BS6375-2. The restriction is secured within the channel of the hinge and there is no need for additional locking restrictors.

Technical Data

The Nico Standard Permanent Restrictor Hinge is manufactured in stainless steel and offers excellent load bearing characteristics. It is available in 13mm non handed and 17mm handed stack heights. 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.

It is recommended that fabricators check all restricted openings to ensure they comply with Building Regulations, as profile variations may affect 100 mm opening.
