Yale has been chosen as the new supplier of door handles for the Korniche range of bi-fold doors from Made for Trade.
The handles have been tested to 100,000 cycles and meet BS 1670: Grade 5 for 480 hours of neutral salt spray and BS EN 1906:2012 for strength.
Made for Trade technical director Ashley Gaunt said: “Our Korniche range is all about attractive design combined with robust functionality – it is the finer detail such as the handles that make or break the overall delivery in the eyes of the customer.
“That’s why we’ve selected Yale as our new supplier of bi-fold door handles for the range, as we feel they are the best fit to complement our premium product feel, quality, brand, and aesthetics.
“Integration of Yale’s well-proven mechanism into Made for Trade’s innovative handle design has subtly enhanced the Korniche doors while maintaining the signature look and exclusive appeal. We’re delighted with this new collaboration and the finished product.”
Yale technical director Brett Evans added: “Made for Trade came to us with a strict brief for the bi-fold door handles to suit their Korniche range. Primarily to evolve from the existing design while delivering a high-quality specification that is expected from a Yale product in terms of quality and reliability.
“We worked closely with them to create the perfect solution and it’s satisfying to hear that they are happy with the finished result. We hope this is the start of a long-term partnership.”
