Architect Broadway Malyan selected concealed TECTUS hinges from Simonswerk for its ‘The Tower’ prestigious new 180m tall, 50 storey, tallest UK residential project, in London’s Vauxhall, containing 223 deluxe apartments. The luxurious interiors feature extensive use of highly polished wood paneling set with heavy American Walnut doors. To achieve an uninterrupted flush finish timber face, Simonswerk TECTUS concealed hinges were specified for these internal doors and additionally for the front door from the lift lobby into the apartments and some interior cupboard doors.
Architectural Ironmonger Interior Hardware commented:
“These are extremely high specification apartments and the designers were very clear that the fittings and finishes should be of the highest order. The large American Walnut doors required a heavy duty hinge which was also concealed so TECTUS was the obvious choice. They liked the product and the technical back-up provided by Simonswerk and expanded the specification to include the majority of the en-suite bathrooms and dressing room doors.”
The doors were supplied pre-mortised and the hinges fitted on site by joinery contractor Houston Cox. The entrance doors use TECTUS 528-3D 1 hour fire hinges in polished stainless steel while the internal doors have TECTUS 540-A8 units in bronze metallic antique finish and stainless steel effect.
