Industry-leading window and door hardware
Security is often the first thing that comes to mind when consumers consider replacing their doors or windows, but some homeowners are still dealing with hardware that is unsuitable and doesn’t keep their house safe. Hardware that is cheap can often cause problems such as loose hinges and faulty locks, which is why it is important to have a high-quality supplier with products that are fit for purpose.
Partnering with a supplier who doesn’t cut corners and prioritises security is vital for providing your clients with windows and doors that are up to the task. In today’s article, we take a look at the importance of using high-quality hardware as well as the companies that TruFrame partners with.
How important is high-quality window and door hardware?
We all know how important a strong lock is for home security, but weak hardware can also cause an easy access point for unwanted intruders. Faulty door hinges can be easily tampered with and will offer little resistance against forced entry.
Likewise, having exposed hardware is a risk factor that homeowners should consider when selecting new windows or doors. Presenting as few opportunities to criminals as possible is one way to limit break-in risks. That’s why every one of our products other than the Liniar French door features completely concealed hardware.
Who do we partner with?
At TruFrame, our commitment to partnering with the best window and door hardware providers is no less important than our choice of uPVC frame manufacturer.
Yale, Lockmaster and Mila are industry leaders who help us to create an unbeatable product range, with hardware that works just as hard as our frames do. Just like Liniar’s uPVC system, our hardware suppliers value security as their top priority and are constantly innovating to ensure their products rise above and beyond consumers expectations, this earns them their secured by design status across a large selection of their products.
When combined with Liniars built-in reinforcement structures, our uPVC windows and doors are some of the most secure on the market.
Reassuring your customers
One thing your customers are bound to be looking for when purchasing new windows and doors are guarantees. That extra bit of reassurance can make all the difference when selecting a product.
Yale offers a 10-year mechanical guarantee on both their Shootbolt and Lockmaster systems which are fully backed by Truframe. Additionally, the Yale Shootbolt system comes with a guarantee that offers up to £1000 against your customers home insurance in the unlikely event of a break-in.
