Spilka Side-hung system solution consists of improved hinges and a complete range of components, including safety device, end keeps, glazing beads, handles and an espagnolette solution with a cover cap of polypropylene.
It’s well known that window manufacturers might have their own preferences and variations of side hung windows. To satisfy different needs, our hinges come in two versions: One with a flat frame plate and one with a cranked frame plate. Our side hinges have “control collars” that facilitate fitting while simultaneously ensuring a stronger connection between the profile and the hinge. If this solution does not fit in with your production line, we also supply hinges without "control collars"
The maximum frame weight is 40kg when using two hinges and 50kg when using three hinges, please see our overview here. It is also strongly advised to use three hinges on any windows of M12 height or 1188mm or taller. Maximum window width recommended is M9, equivalent to 888mm.
Windows with the Spilka Side-hung system solution are opened by means of a handle on the side part of the sash which operates an espagnolette system. This system solution does not incorporate a safety lock as a standard, however we have a seperate safety catch available. This will limit the initial opening of the window, please see details here.
Windows with Spilka Side-hung hinges can be produced with the same timber profiles used for our Classic, Opus and Swing hardware options.
Our R&D Department will give a quick clarification as to whether our hinge variants can be used directly in your current window profile.
Side hung windows can also be produced in PVCu, fibre glass and aluminium - dependent on the relevant profile construction.
Spilka Side-hung hinges are stocked in white (RAL 9010), grey (RAL 7035) and black (RAL 9011). They have flat end caps in a durable plastic material. We also provide decorative knobs in the same quality plastic. Use of knobs require that the flat end caps are removed manually.
