Mila’s popular Evolution high security hinge has ‘evolved’ for composite doors, with a new version featuring game-changing, magnetic, quick-fit technology for the first time.
The new Evolution hinge for composite doors incorporates high strength magnets in the sash part and the lid which means the fabricator simply has to locate the hinge lid over guide fins on the inside edge of the sash part and bring the magnets together to secure it firmly in place. There is no drilling or screwing required and no need for a jig. There’s even no need to fit end caps because the lid has a clever all-in-one design, negating the need for separate hinge caps or covers.
Mila says it is a quicker, simpler and more efficient option for fabricators, with full accreditation to PAS24: 2022 and SBD and no compromises on security.
In terms of aesthetics, the new Evolution hinge for composite doors has a slim design and overlaps the frame profile by just 5mm to allow for maximum plaster line clearance. For replacement installations, that reduces the need for frame extensions, and, for new build, it allows for a smaller frame profile to be fitted which can be useful in complying with the larger clear opening requirements of Approved Doc M. For Approved Doc L compliance, it also leaves room for thicker plasterboard to be fitted around door reveals to increase energy efficiency.
The new hinge comes with all the high performance specifications that customers have come to expect from Mila, including a steel hinge pin for added strength and bespoke options for both Eurocell and Liniar profiles alongside the universal option.
There are 10 colour options to choose from, including white, black, brown and anthracite grey, as well as polished chrome, smooth satin and polished gold PVD.
All come with a 10 year guarantee on mechanical operation and five or ten year guarantees on finishes.
