When Midlands based Nationwide Windows took the decision some months ago to switch handle supplier for its composite door, it wasn’t one that was taken lightly. As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of windows and doors, award winning Nationwide Windows has an extensive social housing and new build customer base to keep happy, so any changes to their offering have to be right for everyone. Daryl Cashmore, Operations Director for Nationwide Windows explains how the supplier switch to HOPPE – the manufacturer synonymous with innovation, quality and performance in hardware for the window and door and architectural sectors – has been of benefit: “We made the switch to the Atlanta and Tokyo PAS 24 accredited Security Handles from HOPPE because security, alongside quality and style, were key considerations.
“They really are designed with the Fabricator in mind and the only handle sets we use in production at Nationwide Windows. Not only do they adhere to the requirements of the PAS24 accreditation, the innovative Quick-fit connection has meant a marked reduction in the damage to the door furniture in transportation as we are able to fit the back plate in the factory and the lever onsite. We have found that on new build sites, the Site Managers often fit temporary levers until all work is complete and will leave the fit of the actual lever as one of the last jobs, to ensure the product is in perfect condition for the customer.
“When you are looking for top performing security handles that offer quality and style, you get what you pay for with the PAS 24 accredited Security Handles from HOPPE.”
