    P C Henderson is pleased to launch our new Twinbolt locking system for use with our leading exterior door hardware system, Securefold. Twinbolt is a sophisticated locking system for exterior folding doors whereby one simple turn of a handle engages a 22mm throw to securely lock the doors at the top and bottom of the system. Designed as a stylish and more concealed alternative to flush bolts, which require manual locking in two separate areas, we anticipate the product to be a popular addition to the range.  New features include the system being able to work with any euro cylinder lock meaning installers have the freedom and flexibility to use their preferred choice of lock – as well as an increased throw of 22mm, providing added security. This also provides installers with greater flexibility in regards to the gap between the door and the frame, an important factor due to timber doors being known to expand and contract after installation.A range of accessories are available to add to the refinement of the product including a stylish Malta Handle Kit and routing rubber cover strips available in a variety of colours. Finer details such as the inclusion of a factory set handle height (1050mm) and easy adjustment of the top lock rod - to suit standard and non-standard doors heights - demonstrates the high standard of design and manufacturing from P C Henderson.Andrew Royle, Sales and Marketing Director at P C Henderson, commented, “Although the previous version of Twinbolt worked extremely well, customer feedback told us that it required increased flexibility. The new system will accept any standard euro cylinder lock which makes the system a lot more future proof for any future lock or handle changes. The system as a whole is the perfect add on for our Securefold system, it’s discreet, stylish, convenient, requires effortless operation and we’re confident it will be received well by the market”.Developed as a direct result of customer feedback, the system is available in five kit variants suitable for top hung, bottom rolling, mortice and non-mortice Securefold systems as well as our heavier weight capacity system, Securefold 150.

    P C Henderson is pleased to announce the launch of our much anticipated Securefold Bottom Rolling hardware – a folding door solution that carries the load of the doors at the bottom of the system, removing the need for major structural building support and allowing the doors to be installed into virtually any space.Typical ApplicationsDesigned for timber framed exterior doors, the new hardware is ideal for applications where top hung structural support is often lacking such as in conservatories, extensions, orangeries and outbuildings. The product allows us to cater for a much more niche type of market where perhaps product options for end users are slightly limited.Features and BenefitsAs well as utilising advanced bottom rolling technology, the system also features some further innovative design elements, including the roller being purposefully situated directly underneath the door making it barely visible when the doors are closed. Eliminating the need for an often restricting upper beam also frees up design space – a feature which may be of particular interest to architects and designers.The system can be used in both residential and commercial properties and is extremely easy to install as it uses pre-existing components from the Securefold range, one of our most popular products which is familiar to many of our customers.

    P C Henderson is pleased to announce the launch of our latest product – Roomflex.Changing lifestyles, such as people working from home and multi-generational living, has led homeowners to seek more flexibility from the spaces they occupy. The launch of our brand new Roomflex hardware helps meet these ever changing needs.Roomflex - an innovative, internal folding door system that has been designed to create and enhance flexible living environments whilst maintaining an open plan feel by fully opening up interior walls. What makes it different? Unlike other internal folding door systems in the Henderson range, Roomflex has been designed to completely eliminate the need for a bottom channel, allowing for an aesthetically pleasing, seamless walkway from room to room. The system operates with effortless ease and combines the space saving benefits of folding doors without compromising on style or functionality. Homeowners can combine both open and broken-plan living by neatly storing the doors when the spaces are opened for entertaining or socialising. When closed the smaller rooms can be used for independent activities such as reading or catching up on TV shows or to simply reduce the space to what is necessary at varying times, minimising the cost of heating the property. Due to the components used the system, when closed, can also be used to reduce noise and smells, for example when used as a partition between a kitchen and living area.
