1 pair of 12” 311mm Nico uPVC Top Hung Window Stay Friction Hinges (one pair)
These 13mm stack height hinges are designed to stay in any open position by means of friction & are common on top-hung uPVC or aluminium windows.
There are varied makes and models of hinges on the Irish market fitted in uPVC windows, there is rarely an issue with the makes or models of hinges, as long as the replacement pair is of the same length, the same width of track, and importantly the same stack height as the original hinges then they will suit the window to be repaired and will work. Always re-fit both hinges this will ensure a smooth operation and also ensure that both the top and bottom are exactly the same opening degree.
