New innovations launched
Barrier Components will be exhibiting at the FIT Show.
The company has launched new products at all the FIT shows since 2013 and this year will be no exception with new pocket door and concealed door kits, new hydraulic patch fittings, a stainless steel Barrierslide addition, and a single sided glass balustrade system to view.
Its new Evokit Pocket Door systems to be revealed are from Ermetika. This system, manufactured from aluminium, easily adjusts for installation into either 100mm or 125mm plasterboard walling providing discreet pocket door systems with or without architraves – saving on floor space when set against swing doors.
A 30-minute fire rated option is also available, and the concealed door kits are supplied complete with flush door and feature reversible framing.
The Barrierslide door kits, featuring exposed tracks and hanging hinges, created a lot of interest when launched at the last FIT Show, the company said, and sales have been booming since.
They are ideal for both residential and commercial applications and will work with solid, framed and frameless glass doors. Due to popular demand the range has increased with a new option: Barrierside Stainless Steel.
GCC is a long-standing Taiwanese partner to Barrier, and its new hydraulic patch fitting and Brisa Sliding Systems will be displayed at the show. This patch fits straight to the floor requiring no preparation, has the advantage of full speed control, and comes supplied in polished and satin stainless and other finishes on request.
The effect on a glass opening internal door for commercial or residential use is stunning and highly affordable, the company said.
The Barrier-Sabco range of glass balustrade systems, along with accessory spigots and coloured LED lighting options, have grown in popularity since the last show. The range, developed by Sadev of France, offers some unique features and comes with a 1.5kN rating.
This year a single-sided fix option will be revealed allowing for even easier installation, especially in high rise properties. The clamps in this system are tightened using a high strength Kevlar belt allowing for even pressure to be applied on the glass and for easy adjustment.
“We are delighted to be attending FIT again this year at the NEC,” managing director, Graham Walker said. “It has become a great platform to launch new innovations and we hope it will be the same this year with plenty of footfall visiting the stand.”
