HWL has added the ultra-high security Brisant Sweet door handle to its furniture offering, creating additional opportunities for its customers to up-sell on hardware.

The Sweet Collection is pitched by Brisant as a high-security premium door handle. “It features a unique curved almost edgeless design”, explained Graham Howatson, Director, HWL.

“That gives it a really stunning appearance but also enhances security by making it much harder to grip with pliers or mole grips, so it’s much more difficult to force entry.”

The Sweet Handle range has been put through its paces in rigorous testing including over 8,000 hours of salt spray testing – that’s 30 times more than the requirement under EN1906:2012.

The door handle has also had its build quality checked during a cycle test. A typical door handle would be expected to achieve the accreditation standard of 100,000 cycles, the Sweet door handle was still in working order after 360,000.

“There’s been a shift in the market, with a now higher demand for ultra-secure hardware, and premium styling in new doors”, Graham continued. “With the introduction to Sweet door handles, we can now offer customers who are selling into that premium market, a premium hardware solution.

The Sweet handle has been designed and engineered by Brisant to move door furniture forward with a more contemporary design but also to underpin it with better performance.”

HWL has also taken the decision to offer the Sweet handle across its complete range of entrance doors, including composites, French and bi-fold doors.

The specialist fabricator took the decision at the end of last year to drop the manufacture of ‘standard’ products, focussing instead on the fabrication of specialist products, including the non-glass bonded, Timberweld Residence Collection.

As part of this strategy, it also added a new range of monkey-tail and pear-drop heritage handles from Regal Hardware at the end of last year.

Graham added that the other big advantage of the Sweet door handles is that they have marketing resources readily available to installers, so customers have access to all of the sales literature they may need when selling the new Sweet handles.

“Ultion is also an established brand, and installers can rest assured knowing that homeowners are willing to pay extra when safety and security is a priority”, he concluded.
