Yale Revolution Window Hinge achieves EPD certification

Added by: SMR Locksmiths Ltd, on: 18th March 2019

Yale Door and Window Solutions has achieved a product-specific Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certification for its Revolution Window Hinge.

The globally recognised declaration provides environmental information on the Yale Revolution Window Hinge and the materials used to make it. It also details the manufacturing processes involved, including the environmental implications of the raw material used, energy efficiency, transportation impact, and waste generation.

The EPD highlights Yale’s commitment to sustainability and can help contribute to LEED and BREEAM compliance – a key consideration when fitting out new buildings.

Paul Atkinson, Sales and Commercial Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: “This latest EPD certification is a key part of our commitment to providing customers with a range of sustainable products.

“The Revolution hinge already offers class-leading functionality and quality, so the addition of an EPD positions the product as both an industry and environmental leader.”

Thanks to its unique patented dual closing function, the hinge can be switched after installation between anti-blowback and easy close functions depending on specification and housing requirements.  Onsite configuration allows for increased flexibility across housing portfolios with multiple building types and also helps reduce time and costs associated with returns or contractors carrying high levels of stock.

The hinge is available in 27 sizes, ensuring a truly comprehensive range that can accommodate sash heights ranging from 300 mm to 1,780 and can form part of a PAS 24 window set. It is also fully BBA certified, made in the UK and compatible with all three main window types; PVCu, timber and aluminium.
