From prams to
world-leading hinges


Spilka was founded in 1933 by Knut Stafset as Spjelkavik Barnevognfabrik AS - the first products were prams and doll’s prams.

Following a fire in 1948 the manufacture of prams came to an end and hinges for the expanding furniture industry at Sunnmøre became the main product in the following years. At this time the company name was changed to Spilka.


In 1959 Harald Kvasnes, a local inventor, built a window with a hinge that allowed the window sash to reverse without entering into the room, allowing easy cleaning of the external window pane. Spilka Classic was born.
Spilka Classic was patented and the window was branded “HUSMORVINDUET” (the Housewife’s window). The new invention rapidly became a winner, and top hung fully reversible windows have been the most popular window type in Norway for many years.

The first exports took place in the 1960's. The name was simplified to “H-VINDUET” (H-Window) with corresponding names in various other languages.


From the 1970’s to the present day the Spilka Classic hinge has been further developed and improved. In 1977 production increased considerably and it became our most important product.
We pioneered the development and production of outward-opening fully reversible windows. Our unique in-house expertise related to window construction and development and the development of system solutions for windows, is shared with our customers through collaboration projects and assistance with production and construction of window solutions.


Spilka works actively to further develop existing products and to develop hardware for new windows and doors. The launch of the Spilka Opus hinge system in 2004 represented an extension of the Spilka portfolio and allows customers to serve new segments and markets. We work continuously with change processes and have set ourselves significant growth targets for the years ahead.
