If like many fabricators across the UK you are spending time, money and effort trying to enhance your patio doors, don’t overlook the importance of the hardware when it comes to getting a competitive edge.

If you fit lower quality handles, not only will you let down the look of your door, but you will also negatively affect its performance.

We have even seen high-end aluminium sliding doors being fitted with age-old traditional ‘D-style’ design patio door handles. That’s no way to make a positive impression.

The growing trend for larger sliding doors has left homeowners searching high and low for a sliding patio door handle that enhances the performance and look of their door. They want a handle, that looks, feels and performs better than what’s been previously available. They want a handle that reflects the aesthetics of the new-style larger patio sliding doors.

Cornish Hotel Sees and Feels the Difference

Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall enjoys a stunning position right on the beach. It’s so close, in fact, that you can watch the surfers from the comfort of the rooms. When their existing sliding door handles quickly deteriorated and corroded they decided to upgrade to blu™’s solid 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Patio Slide Handles. And since they have, the feedback has been incredible.

Their Facilities Manager commented on the difference the handles made, stating:

“We chose blu’s Patio Handles not only because of their durability for our tough environment, but because they are much better looking than the previous handles. Plus they’re more in keeping with the style and environment of the hotel.”

Meeting customer demand and satisfaction is vital in today’s market. So if you don’t fit handles that meet today’s style, or that are likely to corrode and fail in a couple of years’ time then you are likely to miss out on sales opportunities.

And from a fabricator’s perspective, fitting the lower quality option could see you having to make frequent, expensive visits back to site to sort performance issues.

This doesn’t have to be the case any longer!

Blu™’s new style KM9 series Patio Slide Handles not only look stunning but come with a range of features and benefits designed to make the handle look, feel and perform better for you than any other products on the market.
