UNION, part of ASSA ABLOY, offer PowerLOAD a new range of high performance door hinges. Tested to BS EN 1935:2002 and CE marked, the new UNION hinges have also been assessed for use on timber fire doors to BS EN 1634-1. With the additional reassurance of a 25 year guarantee, UNION PowerLOAD™ hinges are ideal for the specification market where durability and reliability are paramount. Designed for long life and outstanding performance, the UNION PowerLOAD™ hinge range requires little or no maintenance. Metal to metal wear is dramatically reduced by using carbon steel and phosphorous bronze flanged bearing bushes with a specially formulated lubricant. This material combination significantly lessens the wear and regular maintenance required by other types of hinge.
