Carl F Groupco at Ecobuild 2012: N453
The first complete set of complementary hardware components developed specifically for timber bi-fold doors will be launched by Carl F Groupco at Ecobuild 2012. Designed and manufactured in the UK, the package is set to dramatically simplify the ordering and assembly process for timber joinery manufacturers.
The first fully inclusive bi-fold hardware component kit
is launched by Carl F Groupco
The established supplier of window and door hardware will attend Ecobuild for the third consecutive year in 2012. With one of the UK’s largest hardware ranges, and a reputation for innovation, Carl F Groupco has selected the premier event for sustainable design and construction as the platform to reveal its new British made bi-fold system for timber.
Previously, manufacturers have been required to source individual components for timber bi-fold doors: this was a complicated process that rarely resulted in a co-ordinated solution. Addressing this, Carl F Groupco has introduced fully inclusive standard kits, supplied complete in one box with add on packages for additional doors – this makes product sourcing fast and provides a harmonised hardware solution. The only information required is the door width and configuration.
The solution has been developed to be easy to install around existing door designs, offering flexibility for heads and cills. Top quality materials are used throughout including austenitic stainless steel components, enclosed needle bearings tested to 200kg and hinges tested to two million cycles. A unique, fully draining aluminium track is low threshold and supplied in manageable three metre lengths that can be cut to size or seamlessly linked using a patented joining system. The quality and simplicity of the innovation is set to make this a popular
Carl F Groupco initiative to support growth in both the timber and bi-fold markets.
The new kit will be a central feature of Carl F Groupco’s stand at Ecobuild 2012. The company’s full hardware portfolio will also be detailed including its current timber product range that features door locks, handles, hinges, letter plates and PN reversible window hardware.
