SFS hinges support timber door market growth at Grabex Windows


SFS high-performance hinges are supporting Grabex Windows as it experiences growing demand for timber doors

High-performance Just 3D door hinges from SFS are helping Grabex Windows, a leading window, door and conservatory fabricator and installer with multiple operations across London, to grow its share of the timber residential doors market.

The company, which has worked with SFS for the past five years, offers more than 50 different fenestration products in timber, aluminium and PVC-U, serving customers across the capital and surrounding counties.

It operates a 45,000 sq ft manufacturing facility at Orpington to ensure all products are custom-made to a consistently high standard in-house – products which have featured in a property on Channel 4’s Grand Designs.

Underpinning the success of Grabex Windows’ rapid growth over the past decade is its uncompromising commitment to using only high quality materials and components in its products. This applies to its timber residential doors, a product range in which it is experiencing growth as more and more homeowners and developers seek the natural beauty, performance and sustainability benefits of timber.

Every timber residential entrance door that Grabex manufactures is bespoke to customer requirements, enabling the scope to deliver both traditional and contemporary styles. One consistent factor is that every one of the company’s timber entrance doors features high-performance Just 3D hinges from SFS.

Just 3D is a European-manufactured, precision-engineered hinge designed for flush-fit doors which provides adjustability in three dimensions – height, horizontal and gasket pressure. This ensures a precise fit for the doorset to deliver the highest level of customer satisfaction and reduce the risk of call-backs and the reputational damage that can bring.

The ability to achieve a superior installation is backed by the quality and visual appeal of Just 3D hinges. Self-lubricating bushes ensure smooth, long-term operation, verified when tested to EN 1935, with a load rating of 100kg achieved in testing.

Being of symmetrical design, Just 3D suits both left- and right-handed applications, with security screws ensuring suitability for both internal and external doors. The system is also applicable to steel frames, as well as glass doors.

Michael Grabowski, Managing Director of Grabex Windows, says: “We use SFS Just 3D hinges as standard on our timber doors because they deliver the quality and performance that our customers expect from our doorsets. We’ve established an excellent reputation for quality, which has helped to drive our business growth, so we really value components like the Just 3D that we can fit and forget, safe in the knowledge they will stand the test of time extremely well.”

The Just 3D hinge is part of the wide range of hinges manufactured by SFS for internal and external doors. This includes the new W-Tec 3D+, which is a robust concealed hinge specifically designed to stabilise the opening and closing of the door, the Easy 3D hinge for heavy entrance doors and a choice of pivot, adjustable and standard hinges.
