Patrick Dean, head of sales and marketing, said: “With our contemporary suites rising in popularity, we wanted to extend the range to provide our customers with further options to create a statement front door. We’ve listened to feedback and further invested in the range, to offer our customers even more design configurations, including the new mid-three square door style.” Door-Stop doors are weatherproof, 30 BUILDING PRODUCTS | OCTOBER 2016 police approved, energy efficient and come with a secure guarantee. www.door-stop.co.uk Meeting the demand for double door installations, PC Henderson has released an additional door kit to enhance its Rustic 80 sliding gear. The kit contains all the hardware needed to specify a two door Rustic system. Rustic 80 meets the demand for a traditional look and is now capable of taking an additional door weighing up to 80kg. It is ideal for barn conversions, period properties, or as a feature in the home or workplace. Andrew Royle, sales & marketing director at P C Henderson, commented: “Up to now, customers wanting to hang two doors to cover one opening would have had to buy two systems, meaning that one track would not be used. Customers can now just specify one Rustic 80, with the option of the additional fixing kit for double door installations. “As the demand for double door applications increases our customers will benefit from a lower cost of specification as it eliminates the need to buy two systems when hanging double doors.” www.pchenderson.com 0191 377 0701 Double in single kit Complete solution prescribed for hospital building Work has begun on the installation of Kawneer curtain walling, windows and doors on Dumfries and Galloway Hospital.
