TIMco, one of the UK’s largest, independent and fastest growing wholesalers to the construction industry, has further expanded their VETO Security & Ironmongery range with the official launch of the innovative Fantom Doorstop, as well as the unveiling of a new range of Quality Steel Hinges. These new extensions follow the recent successful launch of the TAURUS range of external fence and gate hardware, whilst also helping to deliver on the company’s strategy of being a ‘one stop shop’ for builders’ merchants.
The Fantom Doorstop is the world’s first fully concealed, flush finish and trip hazard free doorstop like no other in the market. The flagship product from the Fantom Hardware range was invented in order to solve two problems; to reduce trip hazards and improve aesthetics. Unlike conventional door stops today, the Fantom Doorstop poses no trip hazard due to its innovative design. The doorstop uses a powerful rare earth magnet to activate a pin that is recessed into the floor to stop the door and hold it in place.
The magnet is so powerful that even fast-swinging doors can be stopped in their tracks. When the door is open in a controlled manner, the Fantom Doorstop will also act as a door hold open device making it ideal for preventing doors from slamming.
Because of its clean flush finish, the Fantom Doorstop can be fitted to all floor surfaces including wooden floors, tiles, polished concrete and even carpet. The product is available in six different finishes: Clear, White, Black, Chrome, Brass and Brushed Alloy, and all finishes come with a stainless-steel striker plate.
The new range of Quality Steel Hinges, also launching under the VETO Security & Ironmongery range, have been designed and manufactured to meet the high standards associated with TIMco. The range comprises of 116 hinges in total and is set for further expansion over the coming year.
The VETO Security & Ironmongery range can be merchandised on the existing TIMco stands in dedicated trays, along with supporting POS. The products will be individually packed in polybags with a bespoke label and barcode, making the merchandising an easy task for the merchant, whilst also improving both the ease and navigation of the shopping experience for the end user.
Paul White, Ironmongery Product Manager for TIMco, comments: “We are excited to be further developing our ironmongery range with the additions of the Fantom Doorstop and the Quality Steel Hinges. We are committed to providing everyday products with the signature ‘TIMco quality’ to our customers, but with added POS solutions to make the merchandising an easy task for our merchants. Introducing new and innovative products to the market like the Fantom Doorstop gives our customers new and unique solutions for problems and outlines our company mission to be that ‘one-stop-shop’ for builders’ merchants.”
The Fantom Doorstop and Quality Steel Hinges will be available to purchase from April 2019 and will sit amongst TIMco’s VETO Security & Ironmongery range, as well as featuring in the updated VETO Specialist Product Guide.
