Karcher heavy duty safety lever handles perform in demanding situation

September 16, 2013 by · Comments Off on Karcher heavy duty safety lever handles perform in demanding situation 

Karcher lever handles are renowned for their longevity under duress, and this has proved to be the case as they continue to perform to a very high standard in a local Devon maintained special school for students who experience Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD) where ER27 ‘crete’ safety lever handles were supplied by us and fitted throughout the building several years ago.  This kind of setting is particularly challenging to door hardware and the fact that the Karcher lever handles have lasted so well is testament to their high spec and quality.  ER27 are held in stock at Doorstuff, available for next day delivery.

How do I choose the right hinge for my situation?

March 12, 2011 by · Comments Off on How do I choose the right hinge for my situation? 

Obviously the variety of door situations, sizes, functions etc. are infinite, but these are some of the factors which need to be considered: Is it a fire, smoke or emergency escape door?  How heavy is the door and what are it’s dimensions (height x width x thickness)?  What is the door’s construction and are there any unusual features to take into account?  Where is the door located e.g. internal or external, near the coast or in a swimming pool? What level of use/abuse will the door be subjected to e.g. office, hospital or school corridor?  What items of door hardware are to be fitted which may affect the hinge performance e.g. door closers or door stops?  Any other unusual features e.g. an arched door, bifolding etc?

Can you confirm the AA45 concealed door closers in silver will work for a FD30 door?

September 27, 2010 by · Comments Off on Can you confirm the AA45 concealed door closers in silver will work for a FD30 door? 

Yes, these are suitable for use on an FD30 door.  Remember, the fire-containing property of a door is reliant on the whole set up of the door hardware working correctly together, so be sure to check the operation after fitting your approved door closers.
