One-Stop Shop for Strand Solutions

July 2022

One-Stop Shop for Strand Solutions

Strand Hardware has introduced new products to its panic and emergency hardware range to provide customers with a one-stop shop for complete solutions to key products.

Armoured door loops, power supply units (PSU) and PSU batteries to provide battery back-up are now available to purchase alongside the Strand Antipanic Motorised Touch Bar range.

Until now, Strand Hardware customers have needed to source these items from other suppliers. Being able to buy them in one place should save time and money by incorporating into existing orders, thereby reducing costs.

The power supply units (PSU) are used to convert the external mains voltage, 240v into the required voltage current to operate the motorised touch bar which is 12 – 24v DC or 12v AC.

The additions have been competitively priced and meet Stand Hardware’s exacting quality standards.

Said Strand Hardware Sales Director Craig Fox: “These products are useful additions to our key motorised touch bar products: the PHTM0, 55 and 57. Most businesses are currently experiencing increased costs throughout their supply chain, so it makes sense for Strand to stock items as a total solutions package and help our customers save time and money.”

Strand Hardware - Buy Quality, Buy Once

June 2022

Buy Quality, Buy Once

Not all finger protection devices are made the same – that’s the message from Strand Hardware which is urging customers to apply the “gold standard” for safety and durability.
BS 8613 specifies requirements and test methods for durability, strength and effective function of finger protection. This includes assessment of durability and effectiveness applied to conditions and temperature.
But not all products sold in the UK meet this standard. In recent years, the market has been flooded by cheap imports, many with components that are far from durable. Often made from plastic, they can become brittle and break, becoming a hazard in themselves.
As the UK’s market leader in the supply of quality finger protection, Strand Hardware only stocks products that ‘meet the mark’.
All BS 8613 products must clearly bear manufacturers markings and classification – making them easy to identify.
Said Strand Hardware’s Sales Director Craig Fox: “None of our stock can be defined as ‘one product fits all’. Our extensive range provides a range of devices for various door materials and applications. We prefer to work closely with customers to provide the ideal solution for their project needs.
In addition to product durability - some products come with a lifetime guarantee - there are other benefits to buying quality: bespoke sizes for items up to 2500mm and special RAL powder coated finishes for customisation.
Often buying choices come down to budget but safety should never be compromised, added Craig.
“When it comes to finger protection, don’t be tempted to buy cheap. It makes sense to buy once and buy quality.”
BS EN 8613: 2017 defines finger protection as “a device intended to minimise the risk of crushing injuries to fingers in the gap between the hanging stile of the door leaf and the door frame".
In premises that are used by the public - especially children, the elderly or vulnerable adults - retail establishments, schools, hospitals, care homes and health centres it is essential to minimise risk.
When it comes to the development and management of commercial buildings, risk assessment and identification of appropriate solutions is essential.
British and European standards provide specifiers, architects/designers, health and safety professionals and facility managers with guidance as to what works well, what type of devices should be applied to various door sets, what’s durable and essentially, what is safe to use.
It is estimated that between 40,000 and 80,000 accidents occur every year, mainly involving children who trap their fingers in doors, leading to serious injury, and in some cases amputation. Many more minor injuries are believed to go unreported.
The standard is a benchmark to which professionals can refer, fulfilling a duty of care with an understanding of appropriateness and performance values. It also assists manufacturers to design fit-for-purpose products.
There are various types of finger protection devices available, some are integrated within the door system, others cover the gap between door and frame.
