Ashfen chooses ERA’s Fab&Fix hardware

Derbyshire-based Ashfen Windows and Doors has chosen ERA, one of the UK’s leading home security and fenestration component providers, as its hardware supplier for decorative furniture. Founded by Nick Ashford in 2021, after the acquisition of Midlands Glass Company, Ashfen Windows and Doors manufactures a diverse range of high-quality windows and doors, for both trade professionals and homeowners.

As part of its commitment to manufacturing excellence, Ashfen Windows and Doors has selected ERA’s high-quality Fab and Fix suited hardware for its extensive PVC-U and composite offering. This includes the Fab and Fix Connoisseur inline window handle, the bull ring door knocker, the Balmoral inline door handle and the Nu Mail letterplate, which delivers first-class quality, performance and aesthetics.

Our new partnership with ERA demonstrates our dedication to providing customers with the very best, as Fab and Fix hardware is renowned throughout the industry for delivering unrivalled functionality and visual appeal.”

The comprehensive offering of hardware is available in over 13 unique Hardex patented finishes, which are all supplied with a 10-year function, finish and security guarantee, and have undergone over 1000 hours of prohesion testing.
