Hardware manufacturer VBH, the company behind the greenteQ brand, has forged a strong reputation as a supplier to specialist patio door manufacturers.

The greenteQ range includes hardware and furniture solutions for aluminium bi-fold and lift/slide patio doors and, most recently, PVCu inline sliding doors.

VBH advise that the greenteQ Clearslide lock has been well received by manufacturers of Deceuninck, Kömmerling, Rehau and Veka PVCu sliders since its launch.

The lock and keep are manufactured from hardwearing stainless steel, and both are covered by a 10-year guarantee.

Eight sliding hooks and two anti-lift pins ensure that Clearslide locks provide a very strong connection to the frame. The lock meets the requirements of all relevant security standards, and is covered by Kitemark KM727991 (Building Hardware used in Windows & Doorsets.

As a consequence of this, VBH have added Clearslide to the Approved Hardware list for its Q-secure PREMIUM consumer guarantee. This means that Q-secure installers can offer a guarantee of up to £8000 on their sliding doors.

Clearslide can be operated by the greenteQ standard Alpha Patio P-Handle with its 10-year guarantee, or by the Coastline stainless steel handle set that is supplied with a 25-year surface guarantee. The handles are interchangeable so upgrading when required is easy.

VBH Business Development Director, Rob Norman, says; “We do great business with Clearslide on the four profiles that we launched with, and have had many requests from users of other PVCu systems who want to use the lock on their doors.

“We’re busy developing further solutions that will satisfy these requests and expand Clearslide’s reach. Watch this space.”
