A Captive Market

Kenrick is experiencing sustained demand for its Captive door hinge according to sales manager, Andy Meakin who says: “it’s an industry classic that is continuing to attract new customers.”

The Captive is constructed with a zinc die-cast body with stainless steel pin and meets the requirements of PAS24.

It fits over rebate sizes from 17mm to 22mm and it has an 80kg weight capacity with three hinges and a 120kg weight capacity on four hinges.

The hinge features a plus or minus 2.5mm compression that’s pre-set during fitting, plus or minus 5mm horizontal adjustment and a plus 6mm and minus 2mm vertical adjustment – all to make fitting as easy as possible.



The Captive has been tested to 100,000 cycles and has achieved a minimum of 240 hours salt spray testing for the paint finish and 480 hours salt spray testing for the lorica finish, which both exceed the requirements of BS EN 1670:2007. It comes with a ten-year mechanical guarantee.

Meakin says: “Recent innovations include a new compact design between the body and flag section that deliver improved streamline looks.”
