Rise in sales

The Trojan Group has reported a steady rise in sales for its stainless steel hardware range.

Tony Chadwick, Trojan Group’s managing director, said: “Hardware finish failure is something that’s constantly on installer’s agendas because it’s increasingly a problem. Quite simply, zinc or aluminium based plated or painted products will corrode sooner or later as a result of salt or acid erosion attack especially if the surface coating is damaged. Cold winters have accelerated the process for many products and this has a detrimental effect to the bottom line.”

Tony said more fabricators and installers are turning to high grades of stainless steel, which is durable and products can withstand winters without losing their good looks or functionality.

“The Stainless Steel construction means no corrosion and it’s something our customers really appreciate because it puts an end to disappointed homeowners and expensive, time-consuming callbacks,” Tony said.
