Elementary my dear... “SIMONSWERK”

The TRITECH solid brass hinge from SIMONSWERK has been used on the entrance door to the home of the Sherlock Holmes museum. The museum has over 100,000 visitors pass through the doors each year which over time had worn out the existing hinges on the door. The TRITECH Solid Brass Hinge was specified as the ideal solution due to its unique concealed bearing and suitability for heavy traffic doors. Opened in 1990 the museum gives visitors the chance to sit in Sherlock Holmes’s fireside armchair and enter his bedroom adjoining the study with Doctor Watson's room on the second floor. According to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived in the Victorian lodging house at the world’s most famous address, 221b Baker Street, from 1881-1904. The house is open as a museum dedicated to the life and times of Sherlock Holmes, and the interior has been faithfully maintained for posterity exactly as described in the published stories.

The attractive TRITECH solid brass hinges incorporate a 25 year performance guarantee, high performance maintenance free concealed bearings and a weight carrying capacity of 160Kg – Grade 14. All TRITECH hinges are available with CE marked and 60 or 30 minute fire rated options. The comprehensive range of finishes now includes a corrosion resistant PVD finish ideal for entrance doors which have to withstand the many varied effects of weather.

SIMONSWERK are Europe´s leading Hinge Manufacturer with a history spanning more than 125 years in the manufacture of high quality brass, aluminium, steel and stainless steel hinges for doors and windows.

SIMONSWERK at The Building Centre WikiHouse

“SIMONSWERK at The Building Centre WikiHouse”

As part of this year’s London Design Festival The Building Centre, in partnership with Zero Zero and Arup, constructed the world’s first two storey open source, digitally-fabricated house. The project design, named “WikiHouse 4.0”, can be downloaded, adapted, ‘printed’ using a CNC cutting machine and then assembled in a few days with no construction skills and for under £50k. Leading Architectural Ironmongery manufacturer SIMONSWERK were approached to collaborate on the building and supplied the entire door and window hinge systems from their innovative, invisible TECTUS fully concealed hinge system. Alastair Parvin from OO Architects comments:-

“TECTUS is actually more comparable to a piece of system engineering than door ironmongery. On the face of it, it just looks like a very beautiful hinge - which it is. But its real usefulness is in its adjustability. The fact that you can adjust the door position in location using a hex key saves a huge amount of work during the installation process, and allows a level of precision you’d associate more with industrial design than construction.”

The tried and tested, completely hidden TECTUS hinge range provides unsurpassed high quality solutions for interior space doors and functional heavy duty doors with high load values up to 300 kg, offset models for invisible frames or versions with intumescent kits. The range also includes the TECTUS Energy model, with integrated power transmission for the secure use of electronic applications. This outstanding, acclaimed hinge system has 3D adjusting technology, an opening angle of 180 degrees and a maintenance free slide bearing mechanism. All models have a uniform appearance with a closed hinge body and are available in different materials as well as in attractive surface finishes.
