New 'International' hinge from CRL blends value with performance
CRL is to introduce the new International Series Hinge for frameless shower door applications at the end of Summer 2010.
Offered in both traditional square corner and bevel edge styles, the hinges are available as wall mount with full back plate, as well as 180-degree glass-to-glass models, which essentially cover the majority of popular installation configurations.
"We are pleased to be offering this very cost-effective line of hinges to the frameless shower door market," says Brad Murphy, Brand Manager of the Shower Door Division at CRL. "In challenging times, where budgets are tight, this series provides our customers with a great value and excellent performance combination."
Manufactured in solid brass, the International Series Hinge will accommodate 8 mm, 10 mm, and12 mm tempered glass and will be stocked in polished chrome and brushed nickel (stainless steel look) finishes. The hinges are self-centering within 10 degrees of closed position and gaskets, screws and glass fabrication dimensions information is included in every box.
Further discussing product policy, Gary Dean, Director of Sales & Marketing at CR Laurence explains: "We are very much a one stop shop for our glass and glazing customers; we understand this and accept the challenge.
