Multifunction hinges for the museum renovation
Every museum is not only a unique cultural asset, it is also a very special public space that places extremely high demands on the interplay of architecture, exhibits and use.
The focus is on showcases and cabinets – everything has to be thought out down to the last detail. Because museum visitors rightly demand an attractive environment for the exhibits. They not only have to meet the very highest standards in terms of appearance and quality, they also have to be durable and, above all, functional.
On the one hand, this means that the exhibits must be protected from unauthorized access, mechanical influences, climatic and environmental influences and dust. On the other hand, there are requirements with regard to cleaning, maintenance, transportability or accessibility. And, of course, security also plays an important role so that there is no danger to museum staff when exchanging collections.
This requires well thought-out hinge solutions for which extremely heavy glass and metal doors, special structures that can be opened or other heavy-weight folding mechanisms are no problem.
A well-engineered technology – nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, easy to install, perfect in daily use, with little maintenance and extremely durable due to the construction and the standardized materials used such as aluminium, steel and stainless steel.
versioX is a power hinge, a “power pack” in the truest sense of the word: whether wood, glass, steel or stone – with a load capacity of up to 600 kg (with static counter bearing), the versioX hinges are extremely resilient. And thanks to the three-dimensional adjustability, they are ideal for all types of movable special structures that need an extremely load-bearing, wide-opening heavy-duty connection – as if made for large showcases and showcases in museums.
But nothing of these powerhouses can be seen. The unique design of the versioX hinges enables a clear finish or a flat surface. This is absolutely necessary for a successful construction and enables an extraordinary design.
This hinge solution is not only impressive as a master of “heavy-duty” tasks and their invisibility. It is also particularly customizable. So that the showcases and showcases are easy to operate, the versioX hinge allows an opening angle of -3 ° to + 115 ° as well as a limitation of the opening.
The excellent workmanship and the clear design of the versioX hinges enable demanding projects in terms of design, construction and daily use in everyday museum life.
Another decisive advantage of our versioX hinges is their low installation and maintenance costs. Our hinges are practically maintenance-free and have an above-average service life. By using the latest intelligent technology, we achieve the highest level of efficiency and cost minimization. Both the technology and the product design, everything is manufactured in Germany in order to guarantee the highest possible quality for our customers.
To ensure that museums, their employees and visitors are satisfied, the versioX hinges are tested under extreme conditions – both in a wide variety of applications and in the laboratory – and manufactured in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001: 201.
