Hardware distributer VBH is reporting great successes with the greenteQ stainless steel pull handle series.
The range was developed by VBH head office in Germany, where doors are commonly fitted with key operated (wind-up) locks and pull handles have long been used in place of a lever handle set.
VBH (GB) invested in stock in January this year and can now deliver most of the nine basic designs from their main Kent warehouse. All greenteQ Pull Handles are manufactured from hard wearing 1.4301 austenitic stainless steel (grade 304-A2), which provides good resistance to weather- and pollution-associated corrosion. There are options of 90° or 45° projection, and with standard or extended legs.
VBH advise that, depending on the design selected, the handles are available from 300mm–1800mm high and can be used either singularly or in pairs on many door materials including composite, PVCu, timber, aluminium and glass.
More door manufacturers than ever are offering their customers more choice in terms of door style and operation in a bid to differentiate their products from the norm, thus achieving a higher value sale. This in turn leads to further options of locking system and furniture. Where pull handles were once the preserve of commercial doors they are now being specified on many domestic installations in the UK and Ireland.
VBH Area Sales Manager Jan Zammit states ‘It’s important for anyone involved in sales to be provided with a steady stream of top quality, competitively priced products that are available from stock. We’re extremely lucky at VBH (GB) that not only do we have our own greenteQ products that have been developed specifically for the UK and Irish markets, but there is also a huge range of products developed by our colleagues in Germany that we can bring into our market. The stainless steel pulls are a prime example of this and are proving a huge success with my customers.’
