10-year hardware surface finish guarantee – as standard

We’re offering an industry leading 10-year surface finish guarantee across our entire inline sliding and composite door Fab&Fix hardware ranges, plus selected bi-folding door hardware ranges – as standard.

Smooth operation, stunning design

Fab&Fix HardexPLUS patio door handles from Sliders UK feature feature a heavy-weight zinc construction, with ergonomically designed ‘D’ ring shape and integral latch leaver.

Composite and bi-fold door handles feature the same solid zinc construct and extended returned lever offering ultra-smooth operation and ease of use.

They’re available in a choice of HardexPLUS chrome, satin, bronze, gold, graphite, and antique black.

A complete hardware and door furniture range

Our industry leading 10-year HardexPLUS surface and mechanical guarantee extends right across our Fab&Fix range.

This includes a complete suite of hinges, letterplates, door knockers and numbers.

Built for life by the sea

Forget about call backs for surface damage or mechanical failure caused by salt-spray. HardexPLUS has been exposed to rigorous prohesion testing.

This goes far beyond traditional neutral salt-spray accelerated corrosion testing to replicate ‘real world’ conditions in a series of cycled tests. This includes exposure to a dilute salt solution followed by a period of drying.

This allows residual salt deposits to accumulate and concentrate on surface coatings, replicating rain and sun.

Withstanding this repeated cycle for more than 1,000 hours HardexPLUS delivers exceptional performance, which means that we can offer you and your customers an industry leading 10-year surface and mechanical, hardware guarantee.

HardexPLUS surface coating technology:

  • Salt-spray corrosion resistance: 1,000 hours
  • UV light resistance: 500 hours
  • Abrasion resistance: 18 litres sand
  • Smear resistance 1,000 double rubs
  • Sweat resistance: 4 passes
  • Acetone rub: 500 times
  • Adhesion cross cut check: 1mm for 100 squares
  • Pencil hardness 4N-5N

Also available on Duraflex bi-fold systems

This new 10-year surface finish and mechanical guarantee is offered by Sliders UK as standard across all new Fab & Fix, composite door and patio door handles.

It also extends to Sliders UK’s new Duraflex PVC-U bi-folding doors plus ancillary and decorative hardware.
