Can you recommend a glass supplier?

As we cover the entire country, we suggest you look at the trading standards “Buy With Confidence” website and use their trader search to locate a glass supplier near to you.  Companies who appear on the Buy With Confidence site are audited by trading standards and are therefore reputable.

What is a “back-to-back” pull handle?

March 24, 2011 by · Comments Off on What is a “back-to-back” pull handle? 

When pull handles are needed on both sides of a door – for example a double action door which swings both ways – back-to-back pull handles are purchased in sets.  The bolts pass through the door and fix into the handle on the other side using a grubscrew hidden on the underside.  This method makes them very strong and unlikely to loosen over time, like surface mounted pull handles sometimes do.  Back-to-back pull handles can be used on timber doors AND frameless glass doors.  If using on glass, you’ll need to get the glass drilled before it’s toughened.  The usual bolt thread is 8mm diameter (M8), but it’s always best to get the handles before doing the drilling, because if may differ.  Tiny clear plastic washers are supplied for use on glass doors.

Can I fit the glass door at a later date after the pocket sliding gear has been fitted into the cavity?

With the iMpero there is access built-in to do that, the Hideaway cannot be used with frameless glass.  In fact it is recommended that you fit the gear first, so you can measure the exact size of glass to buy, perhaps by making a template from chipboard.

Interested in your Projeto 150G sliding door kit. Could you recommend a firm to make the actual frameless glass doors?

We don’t make the glass itself, we suggest you try your local glass supplier.  National companies that can supply glass made to measure would be Pilkington and Solaglas.  We can supply a drilling diagram for the glass people.
