Hi, I need to change the 16 inch side hung hinges on upvc window.

The nearest I can get some is from Screwfix but they are metric and and 1 cm longer.

Will these be ok or will I have a problem?

Thanks for any advice.

They may be called 16 inch, but I bet they are sll really metric, its just that any particular make will be slightly different.

Since friction stays fit in a euro groove, the length doesnt matter.

Its likely they will fit and work ok, it depends whether the replacement has a similar opening action.

If the window opens 90 degrees and is egress then you need a different hinge
