Secure Door Hardware Sells Doorsets
Published on 25 July, 2016Blog
According to PDS Doorsets, security sells; and we are not short of secure hardware products, with an extensive Secured by Design range.
‘Fitting Doorsets of a high standard means providing homeowners with complete peace of mind when it comes to a range of things, including potential intruders, weather and draught resistance, to name but a few.’
‘Clearly door hardware has a crucial role to play in achieving this standard and it’s therefore reassuring to know that all UAP door furniture has undergone stringent testing. Products with moving parts, such as lever handles, have gone through extensive cycle tests. Letter plates are tested on their security and viewers their quality and viewing capability. This is all done before the product comes onto the market, and it demonstrates, unequivocally, their ability to give an exceedingly high performance, even in years to come – and that’s the quality that we want for our doors.’
