ighton Products have just launched their new range of antique hardware for both timber and PVCu casement windows, including a dummy hook with the promise of next day delivery. The new antique range of hardware includes Monkeytail stays in 8”, 10” and 12” lengths, locking and non-locking hook/mortice fasteners both left and right handed and a dummy hook, which is fixed to the window. The dummy hook is proving particularly popular on more traditionally appearing PVCu windows when used in conjunction with espagnolette rods and shootbolt systems.

Quickslide are the latest company to fall in love with the Solidor composite door, which has quickly established itself as the benchmark in the sector, both as a product and as a customer focused business. With a range of colours that now extends to 17 inside and out, along with exclusive hardware agreements with Avantis and for a range of black antique hardware, the product offering is by far the best in the sector the company claims. They have also recently returned from the FIT Show with a large number of high quality enquiries for their solid core composite doors.

Every business likes a happy customer but for the latest installer in the Glazerite fold, the compliments started right from day one – even if it took a 200-mile round trip to find a supplier that just happened to be a near neighbour! It was not until Stewart Tyler of Rushden-based Safehouse visited The FIT Show in Telford that he met Glazerite – based just seven miles down the road in Wellingborough.
