Opening doors for fabricators

Don’t let the name deceive you! Contrary to what you might think, Window Ware sells so much more than just window hardware. In actual fact, sales of door furniture and fittings constitute 60% of our business.  Window Ware’s Commercial Director, Richard Bryant, explains more...

"As our name suggests, we offer everything under one roof to furnish any type of window with an extensive range of shootbolts, twin cam locks, espag bars, handles, friction stays, restrictors, and trickle vents. What’s more, we also offer a wide range of bench tools, machinery spares, and factory consumables too. What may surprise you though is that around 60% of our sales is from our door hardware and furniture ranges."

We offer a vast selection of multi-point door locks, euro cylinders, hinges, handles, and furniture from industry-leading brands like Yale, Maco and Trojan. But it’s not just about offering the biggest range. Our customers also need hardware and furniture that allows them to meet the latest home improvement trends, satisfy any customer demand and deliver quality products that comply with the latest security standards. No matter what you are looking for, whether it’s for timber, uPVC or aluminium, or for an entrance door, bi-fold, patio door or emergency exit, you are guaranteed hardware which meets our high-standards and can enhance your operation.

Of course, the biggest growth area in the door market in recent years has been composite doors. This rise in popularity reflects the consumer-led trend towards the premium end of the home improvement market. Instead of uniform, white uPVC doors across the neighbourhood, homeowners are taking advantage of the customisation options that composite doors p[rovide to create something completely unique. As part of this, consumers are returning to more traditional ‘pull-door’ furniture, combining key-wind or auto-fire locks with contemporary pull handles or heritage-style cylinder pulls.

Window Ware offers fabricators everything they could need to furnish a composite door, so it saves them having to go to multiple suppliers. Whether you need standard furniture or knockers, panic bars or pet flaps, you're sure to find what you need from our extensive choice of over 800 door hardware products. We even have a full range of accessories, covering everything from restrictors, chains and spyholes to keypads, closers and digital locks. 

What's more, you can count on Window Ware to ensure you meet the latest security standards with a hand-picked selection of high-quality door hardware and furniture options. The Yale 3-star Platinum cylinder for example, is TS007 approved, and has been independently tested by BSI to be awarded the British Kitemark TS007:2014 3-star accreditation. The Trojan Athena door hinge offers fabricators and installers an increased load bearing of 100kg, a 10-year mechanical guarantee, and exceeds requirements for PAS 24: 2016 when used as part of a door assembly. A wide range of multi-point door lock options are readily available, with eye-level heritage locks now stocked for that traditional look. This is complemented by a vast choice of pull handle styles and low thresholds, alongside high-security letterplates, cylinder pulls, and escutcheons. And with 97% of our products available for next-day delivery, Window Ware is the perfect hardware partner.
