Three new ranges
Launching three new hardware ranges alongside glass handling equipment, hardware and consumables, Bohle reported a successful FIT Show.
VetroMount, Bohle’s new balustrading system, was developed for the growing residential market, and simplifies installation, eliminating the requirement for specialist tools and reducing fixing costs, with live installation demos attracting a high degree of interest at the show.
MasterTrack Bohle’s new internal sliding door system – which can be easily fitted by following simple instructions and requires no glass processing to install – also generated significant interest, alongside Aqua Light, Bohle’s new full-height aluminium shower door hinge.
Helen McKerracher, Bohle’s customer services manager, said: “There’s been a very high level of attention throughout the show to the VetroMount demos.
“What was interesting was that we seemed to be reaching a wider home improvement and refurbishment market in addition to the specialist glass sector and people we already know. The simplicity of the installation process and the classing options generating a high degree of interest.
“And with health and safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds there was a lot of interest in glass handling solutions, including the Lift Master B1, as oversize sealed units make the safe handling of glass more complex.”
Available in standard 2.5m and 5m lengths in top and side-mounted options, VetroMount accommodates glass thickness of up to 21.5mm.
The easy-adjust modular balustrading system features a patented push and pull glazing mechanism and click-and-fix stainless steel finishing option.
Vetromount is counterbored making it suitable for use with standard, rather than more expensive countersunk, fixings. The design of the system means that drill holes can also be set further apart at distances of up to 400mm (top-mounted) requiring less fixings than comparable systems.
MasterTrack applies the same principles to internal sliding door systems. Able to accommodate glass thickness from 8mm to 12.76mm and maximum sash weights of up to 150kg using a single wall-mounted or ceiling-hung track, it’s been designed by Bohle to simplify installation and requires no glass processing or cut-outs to install.
Aqua Light can also be installed Bohle’s new full-height aluminium shower hinge has also been designed to be easy-to-fit and requires no onsite glass processing. Available in black, anodised and polished anodised finishes, the contemporary and adjustable hinge accommodates weights of up to 35kg and door widths to 800mm.
Part of its industry-leading Veribor suction lifter range, the LiftMaster B1 manual lifting device has been developed to combine the safe and secure movement of glass units with maximum flexibility, handling weights of up to 180kg, while packing down to fit inside the boot of an estate car.
“The quality of leads appears to be good, and we attracted visitors across all three days with the stand busy throughout,” Helen said.
