Divisional responsibility

Richard Reeve, sales director of The Parkside Group, will be exclusively looking after one of its major divisions: Axim Architectural Hardware.

“Axim is one of the most trusted brands in the industry for reliability and quality,” Richard said. “Axim celebrated 30 years of business last year and having worked throughout the industry I know that the Axim TC-8800 series of concealed transom closers is well known for its superb long-term performance and, as part of TPG, Axim, is backed up by market leading delivery to its European-wide distributor and partner network.

“Everyone knows the top performer the Axim TC Series of Concealed Closers, however, I am not sure that everyone is aware of how extensive the Axim product range is. The Axim PR Series Panic Exit range is comprehensive, and the Axim Panic Exit Locking Handle is one of the most high-quality products I have seen which fits across the entire range.”

The Axim branded product range includes: emergency and panic exit devices that are certified to BS EN 179 and BS EN 1125; a range of handles including D-handles, lever handles, pad handles, pull handles and tube handles; floor springs that can take a door weight of up to 150kg; and locks including mortice, dead latch, and extension flush bolts for security slave doors.

Last year Axim had a face-lift with a new revamped logo, which joined the new website and technical Lilerature, which offers extensive technical, specification and installation information.
