Heavy duty doors are subjected to many different loads and still have to work properly after many years of use. It is therefore essential to have the right door hinges that can cope with the extreme demands of the heavy duty area. With the VARIANT VX hinge system, SIMONSWERK has created a range of heavy duty hinges that has dominated the standard in this application area for years.
As a global provider with more than 115 years of experience in the door hinge sector, the company applies itself to creating innovative product developments. The VARIANT brand was developed more than 40 years ago together with leading door manufacturers and has been successfully optimised for all application areas in the residential and heavy duty sectors. The next stage of development emerged 15 years ago in the form of the VARIANT TX product range, which set new door hinge standards with impressive technology, variable deployment options, long-term reliability and an appealing look. This VARIANT generation can also be used in a flexible way, even in extremely demanding areas such as fireproof and smoke-proof doors and burglar resistant doors. This range of hinges bears the CE symbol and provides extremely good load-bearing capacity and reliable safety.
SIMONSWERK VARIANT VX hinges provide problem-free functionality between the door and the hinge in many well-known properties such as the Hotel Four Points in Dornbirn and the Hotel Concord in Berlin. The company from Rheda-Wiedenbrück therefore provides different alternatives for all application areas for loads of up to 300 kg. The VX 7939/160-4 N is available for rebated doors attached to wooden or steel frames. The optional FD version provides a continuous sash seal for rebated soundproof doors. Unrebated doors can be equipped with the VARIANT VX 7729/160-4 N heavy-duty hinge.
All VARIANT VX door hinges can be combined with the new 3D adjustable receivers in the VX 25 and VX 75 product ranges. Particularly the receivers in VX 25 product range are equipped with an extremely convenient, innovative adjusting facility that permanently fixes the door during the adjusting procedure. This means that the door leaf can be positioned correctly without problems. SIMONSWERK also wants to achieve even higher load values in the future with modified attachments within the receiver and also on the frame.
With the model name VARIANT Planum, SIMONSWERK introduces an innovative hinge series with a reduced filigree knuckle diameter of only15 millimetres. This connects design demands and high load capacity. The building hinges set visual accents as the filigree hinge knuckle is used in a targeted manner for high-quality building doors as a subtle design feature.
