Blue Diamond has helped Optima, a supplier of partitioning systems used in buildings such as banks, building societies and healthcare environments, to reduce the noise and judder of the hinges on its glass doors.

Blue Diamond re-engineered the hinges to ensure quiet and smooth operation, and to improve their design and appearance.

According to the company, a poorly fitted plastic bush was causing the hinge to judder on the closing mechanism and the large glass doors acted as an amplifier, so any noise became exaggerated.

Blue Diamond originated all drawings using its computer-aided design systems and produced prototypes for testing and appraisal.

Key benefits of product application

  • The new hinges meet Optima’s mechanical and aesthetic requirements, as well as offering improved durability
  • Blue Diamond was able to source the components from a supplier in the Far East, which could then produce the parts in high volume
  • Each of the four assemblies supplied to Optima was packed in a clearly labelled cardboard box, ready for shipping to customers
