Delivering on style and substance

Leading independent hardware supplier Carl F Groupco says that when it comes to door hardware, product performance should always be the top priority. John Crittenden, Managing Director of Carl F Groupco, commented: “The aesthetics of door hardware can have big impact on the overall look and feel of a project. But, as an essential component part for any home or building, product performance should always be the top priority, so it’s essential to prioritise it when selecting your choice of door handles.”

John highlights one product that delivers on both objectives: the Hoppe ARRONE Lever/Lever Handle Set. He says: “Product performance is a vital part of customer satisfaction, so it’s essential to prioritise it when selecting your choice of handles. Fortunately, with the Hoppe ARRONE handle, there’s no need to compromise.”

Suitable for use on PVC-U and composite doors, the Hoppe ARRONE Lever/Lever Handle Set comes in a range of seven contemporary colour finishes, including colour-matched fixings, to make it easy to find the perfect handle aesthetic. It features a long backplate with 92mm PZ centres and is reverse handed to reduce stockholding. It’s also part of a broader product suite that offers everything an entrance door needs, including numerals, spyholes, door knockers and letterplates. 

Available in zinc alloy and aluminium construction variants, the handle has been extensively quality tested to ensure fabricators, installers and homeowners all benefit from the added confidence and reassurance that the ARRONE brand promise provides.  

This includes durability testing to 200,000 cycles. It also includes corrosion salt spray testing to grade 5, which requires 480 hours of salt spray testing, although the handle was tested to 1,000 hours with no impact on performance. To demonstrate the quality of the handle, it comes with a 10-year guarantee on the mechanical operation. 

The Hoppe ARRONE Lever/Lever Handle Set is just one example from Carl F Groupco’s portfolio of a product that delivers on both style and performance. John also highlights the

Atlanta PAS 24 handle, which is fully tested to the latest PAS 24 requirements. There are also Hoppe ARRONE Pull Handles and the Yale Elite T-Bar Pull Handle for projects that need a high-quality, contemporary finish. 

All these products are just a snapshot of the extensive range of premium quality window and door hardware that Carl F Groupco supplies. It has long-standing relationships with Europe’s most innovative manufacturers and focuses on offering the breadth, depth and quality that today’s industry demands.  

Combined with a genuinely customer-focused approach, it demonstrates why the company is the go-to hardware supplier.
