hingeThe innovative fully reversible hinge from Yale Door and Window Solutions is available now from Sealco, one of the UK’s largest independent hardware distributors.


The fully reversible hinge has been purposely designed with a positive lock-out into the hinge’s restricted and ventilation positions. The unique key lockable restrictor makes it ideal for all commercial and residential high rise applications. 


Yale’s new fully reversible hinge contains fewer screws so it’s easier to line up and quicker to manufacture.  Installation is also easier because the hinge is set up in the factory with no extra adjustment needed.


The hinge is a joint development between Yale Door and Window Solutions, Sealco and its customer CMS Enviro Window Systems. “A high proportion of windows installed in Scotland are fully reversible” says Derek Malcolm, Managing Director at Sealco. “CMS asked us to source the best product on the market but we couldn’t resolve all the issues with existing products. 


“We turned to Yale to design a new fully reversible hinge that is easier to use and simplifies manufacture, installation and everyday use for the end user. The new product greatly impressed CMS and they are the first company in the UK to use the fully reversible hinge.”


British designed, Yale’s fully reversible hinge is manufactured to achieve stringent industry standards including PAS24 and BS6375 Parts 1, 2 & 3.


CMS Senior Sales and Marketing Manager Antonio Pontiero concludes: “Working with Sealco and Yale meant we were able to get involved in the development of the new fully reversible hinge right from the initial concept design process. This collaborative approach has ensured we can deliver on the exact customer requirements and gain the benefit of a window that is easier to make and install.”
