122 THE door industry journal summer 2019 Locks & Building Hardware Also online at: Contemporary Door Hardware Range delivers much more than good looks How often are your customers subconsciously annoyed by hardware that doesn’t match, quickly breaks and soon becomes tarnished or corroded? Door hardware is the first thing your customers see, touch and use when entering their home so you should never underestimate the joy of touching, using and feeling quality hardware, and the first impression that creates. Contemporary door manufacturers that opt to cut corners on hardware, which often isn’t even suited across their door, are often storing up future problems for themselves from both a performance and customer satisfaction perspective. That’s the opinion of 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel hardware specialist blu which has launched a high quality, fully suited hardware range that they say will not only give contemporary doors a beautiful look and feel that customers will love but will more than stand the test of time. The fully suited range – all guaranteed for life - includes many hardware solutions including pull handles, cylinder pulls, escutcheons, letter plates, door knockers, centre door knobs in addition to numerals. Manufactured from 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel to help ensure durability, blu’s contemporary door hardware range comes with a lifetime guarantee for peace of mind. As part of its core product range you can also receive it on next day delivery to keep your production lines running smoothly.

ZEROplus officially Business Buddy of Katharine House Hospice The stockists and distributors of specialist door hardware to the door openings industry have been based in Stafford since their incorporation in 1997, with all but two of their staff living in the local area. Sales Director Mark Lockley comments: “We have always looked to support local charities when making our annual charitable donations, and for the last few years one of those has been Katharine House Hospice. Katharine House Hospice is such a special charity, as I’m sure you can imagine, and they have to rely on donations for a staggering 75% of their funding”. “We recently decided that we want to give more to charity as a business, so for 2019 we have chosen to become a member of the Katharine House Hospice ‘Business Buddies’ scheme. This means that throughout the year we will be undertaking various fund-raising tasks to enable us to make regular donations. We have already seen staff donations in lieu of Christmas cards, and an Easier egg raffle get us well on our way to our target!” Zero Seal Systems Ltd will be posting regular fundraising updates on their social media channels.
