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 a right angle (90°), allowing an unobstructed clear opening to provide an emergency means of escape.
