DETAILS
Securistyle, the well established manufacturer of quality, innovative hardware for the window and door industries, has supplied its Sterling hinge for the newly built Tomasal Office Building in the Surco district of Peru.

The eight-storey building spans a built area of 5,713m2 and houses 29 offices. Each of the windows can be opened individually, and by using the top hung Sterling hinges with their superior carrying capacity, the architects, Arq. Samuel Cárdenas, were able to design the building with large vents, ensuring that plenty of natural light was allowed into the offices.

Natural light is proven to help promote efficiency and general wellbeing in a working environment. Additionally, with the district of Surco scooping five awards for some of the best-kept green areas in Lima, it makes sense that office workers are able to make the most of the views.

Capable of achieving all leading international standards, including the UK BS 6375; the North American AAMA 901.1; and the Singapore Standard 212, the Sterling also provides superior weather sealing and the high grade austenitic steel used during manufacture made it the ideal product choice for a project which required high durability. This high-grade material is specifically selected to provide increased strength and guaranteed long-term resistance to corrosion, and it is fully supported by a 12 year guarantee.
