FM300 & FM344 Continuous Hinges - Stainless Steel

The FM300 & FM344 hinges are suitable for use on doorsets that have achieved 60 or 30 minutes integrity when tested by a UKAS approved laboratory to EN 1634-1:2000. Alternatively the doorset should meet the requirements of a FD60 or FD30 doorset as defined in Approved Document B to the Building Regulations.

This hinge is self lubricating and requires no lubrication on installation or during its life cycle. We recommend that hinges are inspected regularly to check fastenings are secure and have no unusual wear characteristics. This should be done at least bi annually however this may need to be increased depending on the application.
