The greenteQ Aspire hardware range, designed for contemporary sliding doors, has been expanded to include a new Bi-fold Intermediate Handle, Sprung Door Handle and Escutcheon Plates. Both handles are available in nine finishes, including the new Brushed Graphite.
Designed to operate locks on the intermediate points of a bi-fold, the Aspire Intermediate Handle uses 43mm fixing centres, matching most intermediate locks in the market. It is suitable for use on aluminium, PVC-U and timber bi-folds and, standing at only 16mm from the face of the profile, allows the sashes to fold back neatly in the fully open position.
Aspire Sprung Door Handles and Escutcheon Plates have been designed for use on aluminium residential and bi-fold doors, with a strong spring ensuring the lever always returns to the 90˚position.
Rob Norman, Lifestyle Product Manager at VBH says: “We introduced the Aspire furniture range to complement our hardware offering for on-trend ‘Grand Designs’ styled, oversized and heavy sashes. With the trend showing no signs of slowing, the addition of the Intermediate Handle and Sprung Door Handles/Escutcheons means homeowners can benefit from stylish, contemporary hardware on their front door and rear bi-fold. Our 10-year corrosion and mechanical guarantee comes as standard, and fabricators and installers can order online via VBH24, or call their local Area Sales Manager for a demonstration of the range.”
