SchlegelGiesse Launches C.H.I.C. 130 Concealed Hinge System
The world of aluminium window is evolving towards an aesthetically and technologically advanced window, with ultra slim profiles and concealed hardware. SchlegelGiesse decided to embrace this trend in 2016 and launched C.H.I.C. – its first range of concealed hardware featuring a 180° opening, allowing to create a new type of window boasting a frontal section with a slim profile and hinges which are entirely concealed within the profile.
In 2018, Giesse decided to extend its line-up of concealed hardware and added a new version with a maximum load capacity of 130 kg, catering for a broader range of building requirements. C.H.I.C. 130 is perfectly in line with the 100 kg version. There are no extra component parts, but simply a set of newlydefined codes to give priority to one key feature that SchlegelGiesse has always refused to compromise on – simple and quick assembly.
C.H.I.C. 100/130 is a concealed hinge system featuring a 180° opening, a maximum load capacity of 100 or 130 kg, simple and quick assembly, 3D hinge adjustment (height, side and compression on the sash even once the window has been installed) and optimal storage characteristics because it completely does away with the need for additional finishing parts.
C.H.I.C. was not only designed with premium top-end buildings in mind. It also aims to meet the requirements of all situations which call for the installation of tilt-and -turn windows, combining a modern design with quick and simple installation, as well as the possibility of opening the sash to 180°. SchlegelGiesse is the international division of Tyman plc, a company listed on the London Stock Exchange which supplies technologically innovative top-quality components for doors and windows.
