P C Henderson Launches Rustic 80 Soft Close System

Sliding and folding door manufacturer – P C Henderson – is pleased to launch a new Rustic 80 Soft Close system to further enhance the sophistication of its popular selling Rustic 80 barn door hardware.

The Rustic Soft Close is a high quality accessory which catches the door in its final moments of travel (80mm) and gently pulls the door into its final position, preventing slamming and adding to the overall longevity of the core product.

The product has been expertly designed so that it can be installed quickly and easily onto new or existing applications. Unlike other similar systems there is no requirement for the track to be removed in order to install the soft close, the mechanism simply slides over the top of the track fittings with no special tooling necessary. Sitting snug behind the track, the product can barely be seen – providing an extremely discreet finish.

Tested to 100,000 cycles – which is the equivalent of opening and closing the door 5 times over the course of 55 years – the system is extremely durable and follows the P C Henderson ethos of withstanding the test of time.

Ian Sproat, Product Development Manager at P C Henderson, commented: “Rustic 80 is one of the most popular products in our range and so we wanted to create a soft close add on which was just as easy to retrofit as it was to install new – we have most definitely achieved that. I would say this is one of the easiest to install products of its kind on the market with a design that is completely unique to P C Henderson”.

The competitively priced system can be used to create a soft open, soft close or both soft close and open when purchasing two kits.

Due to its traditional look Rustic 80 is ideal for barn conversions, period properties or simply for a unique feature in the home. Suitable for internal doors weighing up 80kg, the system is available in 2m and 3m track lengths and in a matt black or stainless steel finish.
