Yale Defender Egress Easy Clean from Yale

(Choice of length and stack height)

Safer, more secure, and easier to clean!

Pair of wide-opening stainless steel hinges with slide feature that also allows easy cleaning. Suitable for side-hung windows of uPVC, aluminium or wood.

Friction hinges are designed to stay in any open position by means of friction, and these hinges feature a simple friction screw, which allows the friction to be adjusted, to make opening of the window easier, and accidental closing of the window in strong winds less likely.

  • Slide feature for easy cleaning from inside
  • Adjustable friction setting
  • Long life ferritic steel and thermoplastic
  • Centre screw fixings reduces vent drops
  • Self-lubricating end cap for smooth operation

Tested to perform over 30,000 cycles and mechanically guaranteed for 10 years. The British Standard, BBA and Secured By Design approved Yale Defender Egress Easy Clean friction hinge is safe, secure and reliable.

The Defender Egress Easy Clean friction hinge is manufactured by Yale, one of the most respected and trusted home security brands.

Did you know? Standard friction hinges allow opening to just 60°, which may not provide adequate space for escape in an emergency situation. However, this 12” hinge allows opening to 80° and the 16” hinge up to 90°.
Egress hinges like these are typically required for bedrooms on the first floor of a house. Building regulations approved document B1 requires that the casement should provide a minimum clear opening of 450mm x 734mm at a maximum sill height of 1.1m, with an unobstructed area that is at least 0.33m². Our 16" Yale Defender Egress Easy Clean friction hinge will provide that opening.
