VARIANT® VX – The Heavy-Duty Hinge System for Commercial Doors
Available from SIMONSWERK North America, Inc.
The 3-way adjustable VARIANT hinge has been used successfully in Europe for many years in high usage applications such as schools, hospitals and airports. This hinge allows the installer to adjust a door in three directions in order to meet precise installation requirements by simply turning an Allen wrench. The door can be adjusted horizontally, vertically and in/out by +/- 1/8” and gives the user the ability to compensate for door sagging, foundation wall settling, and warpage.
High load values up to 300 kg (661 lbs) distinguish this hinge system, as does the three-dimensional adjustability and the maintenance-free bearing technology. VARIANT VX hinges are especially suited for use in fire and smoke protection doors, as well as, emergency escape and rescue route doors. The VARIANT VX is UL listed for fire-rated doors up to 3 hours.
The VARIANT hinge series is available in a wide range of finishes, in particular the solid bronze design, as well as, a selection of different knuckle diameters. The 3D VARIANT VX hinge is also available to fit standard North American 4-1/2” x 4-1/2” or 4-1/2” x 4” butt hinge reinforcements. This feature is particularly important for aftermarket applications. Weldable receivers are available for hollow metal doors and frames.
