New hinges - FAPIM MONACO - have been added to the ALUPROF SA product range. They can be used primarily in MB-79N and MB-86(N) system doors, and their load-bearing capacity allows them to handle sashes weighing up to 240 kg, opening inwards and outwards.

The advantages of these hinges include:

  • simple machining - no milling required, 
  • 8 holes of the same diameter,
  • special nylon washers on the hinge and attachment parts to eliminate the bridging effect, 
  • hinge sleeves fixed in the "0" position without the need for adjustment during assembly,
  • very quick assembly of the door sash to the frame, chamfered holes in the hinge body for faster, safer and easier assembly of the sash to the frame,
  • stepless and independent adjustment in 3 directions: ±0.8 mm between sash and frame, 0 - 4 mm in height with door closed and ±2 mm at sash clamp,
  • universal use, no CNC required, 
  • torx fastening screws with special anti-twist taper,
  • stock optimisation due to number of versions and solutions, the same hinge for MB-79N / MB-86(N) system.

FAPIM MONACO hinges represent robust fittings - the ALUPROF system doors fitted with these hinges have been successfully tested for 200,000 cycles.  

These hinges have been included in the MB-CAD and MB-SOFT (LogiKal) calculation software and are described in the catalogue "FITTINGS CATALOGUE 2 - DOORS - TECHNICAL PART" available in our authorisedarea 

In the section "Fittingslibrary / Fittings supplier materials / FAPIM" a detailed catalogue of these hinges and instructions in a pdf file has been uploaded, and an instructional video showing their construction, installation and adjustment is also available. 

As part of the FAPIM MONACO hinges promotion, the distributor of hinges is offering 2 hinges free of charge to the first 100 customers. In addition, the 4 companies with the best sales between January and June 2023 will be invited to FAPIM's headquarters in Italy for a 2-3 day tour of the company.
