hardware&security PUSHING FORWARD WITH DEVELOPMENT Window Ware, the nationwide distributor of leading branded and own-brand hardware for doors and windows, is pushing forward with its extensive development programme, which has already seen the launch of Window Ware’s new own-brand range of hardware, Kore, and the launch of a new logo and brand identity. The Company also opened a redesigned trade counter at its 36,000 sq ft distribution centre and offices in Bedford last month. Managing Director Rachel Attwood said, “We have a well-deserved reputation for excellent service and with over 5000 items in stock, an in-house technical team and product manager, we provide a product offer that is ever-evolving to suit today’s market. “With the logo, we didn’t want to move completely away from our recognisable brand colours, so those remain. It also reflects the fact that we’re a British company. We showed initial designs to customers and their comments prompted the final strapline “we’ve got it” – because that’s customers’ perception of Window Ware: they ask for it and we send it. “We wanted to make sure that our trade counter customers were also getting the full benefit of our operation, so we’ve given that department a bit of a face-lift too!” Order online: www.windowware.co.uk DEMAND GROWS FOR ‘TRADITIONAL’ MULTIPOINT LOCK SYSTEM A multipoint locking system that was originally produced for the Polish market has found a new lease of life with the growth in demand for composite doors. The Garrison multipoint lock from ERA is now meeting a growing demand for traditional key-operated locks which offer a high level of security and the company, part of Grouphomesafe, reports a significant increase in sales. Garrison is a high-security locking system suitable for composite, timber and metalhinged swing doors. Brett Evans, Grouphomesafe Product Manager explains: “The performance and aesthetics of composite doors have changed enormously and the industry is now producing designs based on a flush door with various glazing options to meet market demand for more traditional looking doors.” Guaranteed for 10 years, Garrison is based on a shoot-bolt design and consists of a fourpoint locking system activated by key cylinder operation. Available as 50mm, 55mm and 65mm backsets, the Garrison accepts 72mm unsprung handles and euro profile cylinders with a facility to accept bolt-through furniture. Brett Evans adds: “Garrison increases the choice that door manufacturers can offer their customers in terms of security options.” Visit http://www. grouphomesafe.com/.
