CE marking for flush mounted escape door hinges.

Adams Rite Europe : 26 June, 2007  (New Product)
Hinges from Adams Rite for doors with high volume flows or subject to high impact receive European certification.
Leading security solutions provider Adams Rite has become the first company in the UK to offer CE-marked continuous hinges suitable for use on fire, smoke and escape doors.

The CE marking applies to Adams Rite's FM-300, FM-344 and FM-3500 continuous hinges, and signifies they satisfy the relevant European Directives.
These flush mounted stainless steel hinges are ideally suited for use on high traffic and high impact doors that have a security and safety requirement, such as entrance and hallway doors in hospitals and secure buildings.

Independently tested to more than 1 million cycles, which is equivalent to approximately 25 years use, Adams Rite continuous hinges provide the answer to many door problems - they distribute door weight along the full length of the door and eliminate localized stresses on the frame. They are extremely durable, easy to install, require low maintenance and have valuable security, safety and aesthetics benefits over conventional butt hinges.

The continuous hinge design is aesthetically pleasing, prevents fingers from becoming trapped between one side of the door and frame, and the large number of fixings deters hinge prying. They are also available in anti-ligature format.
Adams Rite CE-marked continuous hinges allow self-closing when used on fire doors fitted with a door closing device, and have been successfully tested to BS EN 1935:2002 Grade 13. Fire tested to BS EN 1634-1:2000, Adams Rite's continuous hinges on a timber door set can still function after up to 60 minutes in a fire.
