hardware& security sponsored by Meeting Instant Success »»National supplier for the trade, Total Hardware has reported strong demand for its recently launched range of stainless steel door furniture, Quantum. With more pressure than ever to deliver a true “fit-andforget” product to the market, that will hugely reduce callouts, fabricators are now adopting stainless steel hardware for a wider range of applications, beyond the usual higher-end, or coastal markets. “It’s true that demand for entrance doors is going strong, but so is competition, and the last thing you need in such a tight market is to have to deal with service calls and manage disappointed clients,” says Chris Pell, Total Hardware general manager. “In reality, stainless steel needs to be specified for applications in more diverse areas than it is being done currently, in order to avoid tarnishing and pittin g, which leads to guarantee claims, and ultimately writes off all the cost advantages of an initially cheaper hardware option. Our clients are amongst the first to realise this, and to act on it, to the benefit of everyone involved – from their own business, to their installer clients, down to the end-consumer.” The range consists of door handles in long and short back plate versions, letterplates, door knockers and letters & numerals, and has been designed following client consultations and their request for a stainless steel alternative to Total Hardware’s Why not fabricate aluminium bi-folds by choosing One bi-fold hardware range for all Systems For more information call Total Hardware on 01132432255 systems? • CE COMPLIANT • BAR LENGTH PROFILES & HARDWARE Various finishes in stock • INCREASE YOUR PORTFOLIO Incorporate an aluminium bi-fold at very little cost • REDUCE YOUR STOCKHOLDING Less components to fabricate your bi-fold door • REDUCE YOUR LEAD TIMES Weekly deliveries nationally • INCREASE YOUR TURNOVER & PROFIT No minimum order / stillages, with minimal outlay System features • Buy DIRECT from a manufacturing specialist • Aluminium Bar Lengths available • Thermally Broken Flush Tracks as standard • Technical Support and Hardware Catalogues Hardware features • The ONLY universal inline fully concealed bi-fold door gear, • Compatible with aluminium, glass, timber, ali-clad & PVCu • Hidden Tracks and Concealed Rollers • Inward and Outward Opening • Hidden Rollers (top hung & bottom rolling) 0845 644 6630 www.foldnslide.net email@example.com 72 » SE P 2015 » CL EARVI E W- UK .
