Kenrick has launched a suited range of heritage hardware, which has been developed to bring a period feel to both PVCu and aluminium windows.
Combining the traditional aesthetics of 19th century ironmongery with the durability and performance of modern hardware, the new range is available in monkey tail and tear drop styles and includes handles, stays and dummy stays.
The Heritage Range suits any style of PVCu or aluminium window and is particularly well-suited to flush sash windows, which are growing rapidly in popularity as Steve Williams, Kenrick’s sales and marketing director explains:
“The market for flush sash windows is booming at the moment and nearly half of fabricators see them becoming as important as standard casement windows within the next decade. Demand for the flush sash has been fueled by homeowners and developers who want an authentic-looking alternative to timber that will suit both older homes and new-build properties.
“We introduced this versatile new range in response to customer feedback and it is already proving popular with those who want to tap into the growing heritage market and make the most of the sales opportunities it brings.”
The new Heritage Range comes in multiple finishes, including white, gold, chrome, smoked chrome, antique black and satin silver. Handles are supplied right and left-handed and have a key locking facility. The range can be adapted to suit any application with a choice of fully functioning furniture or dummy stays that are fixed to the sash for display.
Zinc casted for extra durability, the Kenrick range is fully salt spray tested to 240 hours to exceed BSEN 1670:2007 and comes with a full 10-year mechanical guarantee. It is compatible with Kenrick’s extensive range of espagnolette and shootbolt locking systems.
