Despite being one of the exciting growth sectors in our industry recently, bi-fold doors ‘do not come without their challenges’ and according to Graham Fawthrop, managing director of bi-folding door hardware specialist, Debar, one of the hardest things to achieve traditionally has been to perfectly colour match the entrance door handles with existing bi-fold hardware ranges.
But thanks to Debar’s product development partnership with handle specialists HOPPE, this problem is now a thing of the past, as fabricators and installers can enjoy a special range of HOPPE door handles that specifically match Debar’s Vivo and Verso handle and accessory range.
Graham commented: “Working closely with HOPPE in recent months, we are delighted to now bring to market our new colour match suite of hardware. This includes the Vivo and Verso range of intermediate door panel handles (with or without escutcheons), the HOPPE Atlanta entrance door handle, and magnetic door holders in two sizes to suit all handle sizes on bi-fold doors. Colours include white gloss, black matt, grey matt, brushed satin silver, gold, chrome and polished chrome.
“It has taken us a while to find the right partner and products, but thanks to HOPPE, our customers can now benefit from a handle that offers an extensive fit to most multipoint door locks, a perfect colour match, and a ten year surface guarantee. Anyone interested in seeing these unique bi-fold hardware ranges is invited to FIT 2014 stand 326.”
