For existing buildings

In commercial buildings, there are often differentiated and special  requirements for hinges. For many years, the tried and tested VARIANT VN has offered a wide variety of harmonised hinge solutions for practically unlimited options.


Tried and tested in commercial properties

VARIANT VN can be used on heavy rebated and unrebated heavy-duty doors in blind frames, casing frames and steel frames. High-quality materials, maintenance-free slide bearings and load capacities of up to 200 kg - and possible use on fire and smoke protection doors - characterise the hinge system.



The VARIANT VN hinge system for block frames offers many ways of being able to achieve strong visual appearances in the field of renovation and construction in existing buildings. Even with very narrow block frames, room closures that are flush to the wall can be retrofitted.

  • optional acoustic seal 
  • for timber, steel and aluminium frames 
  • for load capacities up to 200 kg

VARIANT Compact is most suitable for modern door renovations. With the 3D receiver placed in the door leaf, existing steel frames can be fitted with a very narrow frame construction and can continue to be used.
