April 2013: Narrow Style Hardware Design
Our entry-level sliding door products (Series’ 1070, 1050, 1000) come with hardware available from the “industry”, which is primarily overseas production. The quality of this hardware falls short of our customer’s expectations. We have made a commitment to design our own hardware, which will aptly be called “Archetype Narrow“. It will come standard on all entry-level sliding doors silver painted but will also be offered on the premium product lines (Series’ 3070, 3050, 3300, 3000) with a narrow lock stile and in #316 alloy stainless steel. The designs were completed weeks ago and we anticipate the arrival by September.
