Blu launches KM9 series patio door handle range to meet growing consumer demand for larger sliding door systems

Performance door and window hardware manufacturer blu™ has launched its new KM9 series Patio Slide Handles to meet growing UK demand for larger sliding door systems.

The handle range - all manufactured from 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel - has been designed to combine contemporary styling and aesthetics with guaranteed anti-corrosion performance -

Key features of the KM9 Series Patio handles range include:

  • Guaranteed Lifetime performance, enabling you to provide your customers with a better warranty
  • Manufactured from solid 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel to prevent corrosion
  • Designed with a new solid 316 Stainless Steel backplate to operate even the largest, heaviest of sliding door leaves
  • Supplied with an easy-to-operate latch lever
  • Available with Euro Profile Cylinder cut out or blank plate options
  • Compatible for use with most locking systems such as Yale and Sobinco
  • Part of blu’s suited range of door and window hardware to keep consistent design across a property

As with all blu™ door and window hardware, the patio handles feature its unique ‘Super-Satin’ finish providing a soft feel and reducing the chance of any airborne contaminants settling on the hardware and causing tea-staining.

“The growing trend for larger sliding doors is a definite opportunity for fabricators in the UK. Many are spending time, money and effort trying to enhance their patio doors, yet continue to overlook the importance of the hardware when it comes to giving their products a competitive edge.

“Poorer quality handles not only let down the look of the door, but also negatively affect performance and are likely to corrode and fail in a couple of years’ time. This results in visits back to site to sort performance issues and unhappy customers,”said blu™ MD Loren Jenner.

“Our KM9 Series Handle is the first of its type in the market - contemporary, modern looking Straight Slide Patio Door Handles mounted on a solid back plate and universally handed. It’s been designed to operate a range of lock systems including Sobinco and Yale. When used in multiple scheme applications the dummy handle has been designed to look the same as the working handle providing vastly improved aesthetics over other existing designs in the marketplace,” added Loren.

Cornish Hotel Sees and Feels the Difference

One of Cornwall’s leading hotels - The Watergate Bay Hotel – recently fitted the new KM9 Series handles and has already seen the benefit.

Enjoying a stunning position right on the beach, their existing sliding door handles quickly deteriorated and corroded as a result of its location.

Consequently they decided to upgrade to blu’s new solid 316 Stainless Steel Patio Slide Handles.

Since being fitted feedback has been incredible. Their Facilities Manager commented on the difference the handles made, stating:

“We chose blu’s Patio Handles not only because of their durability for our tough environment, but because they are much better looking and performing than the previous handles. Plus, they’re more in keeping with the style and environment of the hotel.”

Meeting customer demand and satisfaction is vital in today’s market. Be different and see how blu’s stunning KM9 Series Stainless Steel Patio Door Handles catch the eye of your customers. Try fitting a handle set to the sliding doors in your showroom.
