greenteQ Delta Hinge Protectors are used by professional window manufacturers up and down the country. They provide excellent resistance to forced entry by supporting a standard friction stay in the event of a break-in attempt on the vulnerable hinge side of a window. They are compatible with standard casement windows, as well as variants including French windows, as well as chamfered, flush and sculptured detail PVCu, aluminium and timber windows. It is recommended that Delta Hinge Protectors should be fitted to any window that is to be tested to PAS24 and they MUST be fitted to all Q-secure outward opening windows.
The Delta Hinge Protector dramatically improves the security of casement windows.
With one half fitted in the friction stay groove on the sash and another fitted opposite on the frame (in both hinged corners), the components inter-lock if jemmying of the otherwise vulnerable hinge side of a window is attempted.
In normal use the two halves of the Delta Hinge Protector do not come into contact with each other. As a result, wear and tear is not an issue.
