Brisant Secure has launched Sweet, which it says is a ‘truly suited’ range of door furniture that could be a ‘game changer’ for the entrance door market. It shares the same registered curved design ethos of Lock Lock, Brisant’s security door handle and includes handle, knocker, letterplate, escutcheon and numerals.
Suited door furniture has long been a headline requirement for door buyers. However, Brisant says that in most instances the term ‘suited’ extends little further than colour, with no design compatibility between components. The hardware specialist says that by bringing Brisant’s curved design concept into the handle, knocker, letterplate, escutcheons and numerals, gives the door a genuinely coordinated appearance with curve appeal.
Every Sweet element is reportedly manufactured to the same specification as Lock Lock, which boasts 8,000+ hours in a salt spray chamber, said to be 34 times longer than the 240-hour accreditation requirement and eight times that claimed by stainless steel systems. Based on independent tested performance, Brisant Secure claims that the Sweet 10 year anti-corrosion warranty is a guaranteed expectation of life-span, not a period of time that the installer is expected to supply replacements for.
To reinforce this confidence, Brisant is offering a direct-to-consumer warranty, with a ‘simple and quick’ on-line activation system.
Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure, commented: “We have seen little innovation in the door furniture sector for many years, with ever-inflating prices for me-too products. So, we’ve developed Sweet, a fully integrated door furniture system, that’s all wrapped up in a beautiful design and so it not only looks sensational, but offers unrivalled longevity, something we’re backing up by taking full ownership of the warranty.
“At the same time, we’re bringing in Lock Lock to the Sweet family as not only the ultimate high security upgrade, but as a suited high security upgrade. Collectively, this will provide unique sales opportunities for our customers in the entrance door market, without the worry of pitting hardware and excessive call backs.”
