Design For The New Normal

by | Jan 26, 2021 | Doors

With the new normal and remote selling, the industry and the way we do things has changed dramatically over the last twelve months. More and more services are moving online to keep up with the changes, and companies have to adapt to this new situation to survive.

Force 8 has always had a strong digital presence and it has now been reinforced with the addition of an extensive range of glazing cassettes to their unique Door Designer. Launched in 2018, the company says the Force 8 Door Designer is the only online design system that includes arched frames; ‘an important element missing from every other system’. Homeowners have the ability to design their own door from the comfort of their armchair and then view it digitally in their own home, whether it’s a standard or arched frame.

The simple no-nonsense step-by-step design process means that both the public and trade can use it with ease. “We wanted to create something different that would set Force 8 apart, but at the same time make it simple to use”, comments Dennis Sumner, Managing Director of force 8. “Including arched frames in the system was a major element for Force 8 and fills a large gap in the door market. Since it’s launch in 2018 we have continued adding to the system as we develop new designs, and acquire additional glazing cassettes. It’s now grown to be a major benefit, and almost a necessity with customers no longer able to visit showrooms during the present restrictions, it’s an ideal solution to these strange times”.

If installers want to add the system to their website, Force 8 are offering the Door Designer free of charge, just register with the company to obtain a link to their trade website. Register here:
