Mila have been producing quality hardware in the security industry for years, and in keeping with their reputation for quality, this uPVC hinge protector bolt, aptly named the Mila 'Fearless', is a tough hinge bolt for uPVC doors and windows. Fitting neatly and easily into the euro-groove of your uPVC door, the design and build quality on this is superb.
When the door or window is closed, the curved bolt projects into the supplied frame-mounted keep, providing a tough anti-jemmy feature particularly useful on outward opening french style patio doors or windows, where the hinges may be externally fitted.
With plenty of fixing screw holes, and a purpose-made mounting to suit the vast majority of uPVC euro grooves (these are the ridged vertical 'slots' you see all around the depth of your uPVC doors / windows), the Mila Fearless hinge protector bolt is an immensely strong additional security feature for your home.
Bolt Length: 36mm
Euro Groove: 11mm / 16mm
Counterpart Width: 35mm
Counterpart Height: 70mm
Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I am head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now we're putting these short, little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have offer in hopefully a little bit more detail and hopefully help you make a bit more of an informed decision as whether or not this is the product you are after.
Today I want to show you a hinge bolt that we have on our website. This is the actual hinge bolt here. Now it's actually designed to work with UPVC doors as opposed to wooden doors. What you'll find is around the outside of your UPVC door you'll find that there is a groove. It's called a euro-groove and it is designed to actually sit inside that euro-groove there and this is the actual groove in depth there but the idea is that when this is actually positioned on your door when it actually closes, it'll close into this keep that you would then be situated actually onto the frame. So as the door closes, it will then lock into position there like that so that's the basic principle of how it all works.
It's quite a phenomenal piece of equipment and of course, any door that will be opening outwards like a set of French doors or a set of patio doors, the hinges are on the outside which means that then they are vulnerable to being attacked to actually open the door in the opposing way as opposed to the locking side. So there is actually a degree of vulnerability and there is good credibility to considering having this on outward opening UPVC doors.
All right, very, very quickly what I'll do is I'll give you some measurements just to give you a quick idea is to see whether it will fit on your particular UPVC door. The actual base there is 34 millimetres. The actual height of the actual unit there is 80 millimetres. The size of the groove there it's the inner groove is more important that's your 16 millimetres there that's the measurement of the euro-groove there. So that's the traditional euro-groove and this particular piece here steps down to 11 just short of 12 millimetres.
Now it won't come with fixings. You need to consider getting yourself some screw fixings because it depends on what it is the inside yours as to whether or not you're going to be drilling into or fixing into the metal that may be inside of your particular door. So be mindful of getting yourself your own screw fixings for these. I'll just also will give you a quick idea in regards to the length of the bolt projection there and that's a staggering 36 millimetres. So a significant amount of projection there and of course, that's designed then to sit into there like that. The footprint of this is similar but I'll just quickly give you some measurements for it. It's 35 millimetres across and 70 millimetres high.
So there you go, guys. It just gives you an opportunity to see the product in the fresh, so to speak, so therefore then how can you make a bit more of an informed decision as to whether or not this is the product that you're looking for.
