Allegion strive to redefine how door hardware is sold
Specialist security manufacturer, Allegion, is launching a new programme that will hopefully redefine door hardware sales. Allegion’s new first-of-its-kind Try Me Product Programme, gives end users the option to try door closer products on a single door before committing to fitting them throughout their buildings.
The Try Me Product Programme is launching especially for the commercial, healthcare and education sectors, where young people and those needing specialised accommodations are more likely to be negatively affected by doors and door sets that have been incorrectly specified in the past.
Paul Barrows, demand creation leader at Allegion UK, commented:
“We’re always creating and innovating new products, and decided that it’s important to reflect this ethos in the way our products are being sold. We knew that problem doors in commercial buildings can be a burden for facilities managers, so we wanted to give them an easy way to fix it.
“Doors can cause inconvenience through draughts or loss of privacy, but incorrect specification can jeopardise the security and fire safety of the building. We’re encouraging building owners to address the issue of problematic doors and ensure they are putting the best possible solution in place the first time.”
The new programme also allows Allegion to deliver technical advice and consultation to support product selection, alongside demonstrations by trained installers, as well as before and after product comparisons.
