The importance of hardware for window&door
Windows and doors cannot perform any function without hardware. Whether it is required to open or lock a door, or slide open a window, it is hardware that works with all types of products.
With residential doors, much of the locking hardware centres around multi point locking systems comprising lift up handles to throw shoot bolts and additional bolts for added security. This complements door hinges, keeps and other hardware that all play a relevant part. Handles are varied in design, shape and colour choices all working to complement the products. Technology has now progressed to electronic door locks, key fob readers and much more.
Window hardware today mostly comprises multi point locking systems with espagnolette handles all working together to make windows secure and ensuring they meet the relevant British or European standards. Other windows such as tilt and turn, pivot or sliding windows use different hardware necessary to perform these different optioning functions.
On commercial doors in particular, the hardware is the most important component in enabling this very simple in construction, yet highly capable product to perform a whole variety of functions and features. Door hardware here comprises door closers, access control systems, panic bars and emergency exit devices, keypad entry locks and entry and exit systems to suit many types of different shops, office, laboratories, hospitals and much more.
Door handles are also important in commercial doors given their very heavy usage every day and are also available as warm to the touch furniture to meet the needs of visually impaired people and the disabled.
Most commercial door hardware is also available with some form of automation.
Commercial windows utilise similar hardware to residential systems, but here window hardware extends to specialist needs such as anti ligature furniture widely used in secure environments such as prisons and mental institutions. Additionally window hardware can create fully reversible windows for cleaning, parallel opening windows, specialist constructions for high use or extreme security.
