With the rise in demand of flush casement windows, it’s never been more important for fabricators to partner with a hardware supplier that can offer the full range of hardware solutions for this type of window.
John Crittenden, Managing Director of hardware distributor Carl F Groupco, says: “As an independent company, we’re free to work with a range of suppliers and offer the choice our customers need.”
Carl F Groupco stocks a range of flush hardware from Yale, Maco and Kenrick, including window handles and stays for heritage detailing.
The Maco Flush Sash Shootbolt System was designed for flush casement windows and allows for shootbolt extensions to be fitted to the MACO MACH II centre cases or MACO telescopic shootbolt espagnolettes. It meets all the latest Building Regulations and is available in two cam height sizes and three extension sizes.
The Yale Flush Sash Shootbolt System is a flexible solution that is suitable for most PVC-U standard casement and flush window systems, as well as aluminium and timber profiles. It covers all window sizes from 326mm to 1420mm with just four rod sizes and there is a non-crop option with extendable gearbox and 7 rod sizes to cover 522 – 1510mm. Like the MACO system, it meets all the latest Building Regulations requirements as standard.
The range of Kenrick key lockable heritage window handles and stays are available in two distinct designs to perfectly suit traditional dwellings while the Kenrick monkey tail and tear drop ranges offer fully suited hardware for the window. Both ranges are available in a wide choice of colours to suit every internal decoration scheme.
The range of flush sash solutions reflects Carl F Groupco’s commitment to offering the widest inventory of quality window and door hardware products from leading industry suppliers. Each stocked hardware range results from longstanding supplier relationships and an established pedigree that stretches back over 70 years. The business operates nationally including the Scottish Highlands and offshore islands from its impressive distribution centres based in Peterborough and Cumbernauld.
John concluded: “Our role is to support the UK’s window and door industry by offering the solutions the market needs. Our flush sash hardware ranges help our customers make the most of the current opportunities.”
