VBH supply the Quad Guard hinge protector for Q-secure and Document Q compliant residential doors. Quad Guards work in harmony with greenteQ Sigma Hybrid and Yale Patriot Plus hinges, allowing Q-secure PVCu doors to deliver fantastic levels of domestic security. They are fully tested to the PAS24 security standard.
Quad Guard is a durable, high tensile steel hinge protector. It improves security performance of PVCu doors by supporting the hinges in the event of an attempted forced entry.
Like greenteQ Hinge Protectors on windows, the 2 halves of a Quad Guard do not come into contact in normal use, so there is no wear and tear. In the event of a jemmy attack on the hinge side of the door, the 2 halves interlock to support the hinge in preventing separation between the sash and frame.
No routing of the profile is required. As well as being fitted as standard to Q-secure doors, Quad Guard can also be retro-fitted to existing doors to improve security.
Quad Guards MUST be fitted at every hinge point on Q-secure doors.
