Window Ware partners with GT Window Products to give fabricators PAS 24 edge
Window Ware, the award-winning, independent hardware distributor, has strengthened its industry-leading range with window and door hardware from GT Window Products.
The new range of patented hardware accessories is designed to help fabricators enhance their windows and doors, upgrade security, as well as differentiate their products from the competition. Designed and manufactured in the UK by GT Window Products, the range also aims to give fabricators an alternative way to meet PAS 24 certification.
The GT Window Products range features three PAS 24 certified solutions: the Quad Guard PVCu door hinge protector, the Stay Guard window hinge protector and the Snap Lok glass retention device. The Quad Guard is a fast-fix, rout-free add-on that does the job of a traditional door dog bolt to protect the door hinge and boost security. The Stay Guard lives up to its name and achieves twice the hook engagement of rival products for greater protection.
The Snap Lok holds glass panels firmly in place to improve the security of window and door sets by increasing their resistance to physical attacks with tools – a key requirement of the part B and C manipulation tests carried out during PAS 24 assessment. The range is completed by the Bow Constrictor, which offers a cost-effective tolerant alternative to wrap-around gearing, along with the Sash Seal, which helps to keep windows draft-free and reduce the risk of bowing.
Richard Bryant, Commercial Director at Window Ware comments: We are absolutely delighted to add the GT Window Products line-up to our hardware offering. It’s a fantastic range that delivers real benefits to our customers by helping them solve common fabrication problems, achieve a better-finished product and stay competitive. – With the many challenges facing fabricators, including PAS 24 certification, we anticipate a positive response from our customers across the country. Our team is primed and ready with any advice or information customers may need.
The new range joins Window Ware’s extensive collection of window and door hardware, factory tools and consumables from leading brands such as Yale, Maco, Trojan and Xpert. In total, Window Ware offers over 6,500 unique products, 97% of which are available with Window Ware’s renowned next-day delivery. The Bedfordshire-firm was recently awarded the ‘Service Excellence’ award at the 2018 SME Bedfordshire Business Awards, along with a nomination for ‘Customer Care Initiative of the Year’ at the G18 Awards.
