Side Hung 12″ Nico Egress Window Hinges Description

Window hinges or sometimes called window friction hinges or window friction stays, are the most common part that requires replacing on windows. Broken window hinges are the number 1 cause of draughty windows. People often think that their rubber seals are damaged or have shrunk, while nine times out of ten it will be broken hinges. The most common sign of broken hinges is a gap between the frame seal and the sash (the opening section). Replacing the hinges will cure this problem.

Even if only one hinge is broken, both hinges must be replaced with a matching set. A small number of window manufacturers use 17mm stack height stays on their windows. Each pair comes supplied with a set of packers, which changes the stack height from 13mm to 17mm.

These window hinges are a perfect replacement set, as they will work with virtually every uPVC window regardless of the manufacturer. They will also work on aluminium and timber (wooden) windows.

This set of hinges is suitable for side hung windows only. Unlike standard side hung hinges, egress hinges open at almost a right angle (85°), allowing an unobstructed clear opening to provide an emergency means of escape.

Fitting Instructions

Fitting Instructions for uPVC windows:

1) Making sure you have a firm hold of the sash (it’s a good idea get an extra person to help you hold and lift the sash) carefully remove the fixing screws hold the hinges to the frame.
2) When the screws are removed, carefully lift the sash out of the frame
3) Standing the sash on the floor, remove the screws holding the hinge to the sash.
4) Fit the new hinge to the sash and re-fit the screws.
5) Turn the sash over and repeat for the other side
6) Making sure you have a firm hold of the sash, lift and position the sash in the frame
7) Re- fit the top and bottom screws on each side. The holes on top and bottom are slotted to allow for movement to adjust. Close the sash and test how it is locking. Loosen the top and bottom screws and move if required.
8) When you are happy with the position, tighten the top and bottom screws and fit the middle screw on each side
