A new name in knockers!

December 19th 2012

DorPro Hardware is a division of Solidor Ltd, one of the UK's fastest growing and most widely regarded composite door manufacturers. This new venture has been specifically set up to supply the entrance door market with high quality hinges and a range of decorative knockers.

Solidor’s own experience in the door hardware sector suggested that the market would benefit from a new dynamic player. After many months of working with carefully selected manufacturing partners, DorPro Hardware has now begun trading with the same business ethics as Solidor, namely quality, service and competitive prices.

The new slimline face fixed flag hinge, is dedicated to single rebate doors and offers 4mm of adjustment both laterally and horizontally and the feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive. These hinges are available from stock in brushed chrome, chrome, gold, white and black in boxes of 10. This new flag hinge, significantly reduces labour and hanging time during production and often only requires one man and no trestles to hang a door on site.

To accompany the flag hinges, DorPro have also launched a range of door knockers with a high quality finish in chrome, gold, white and black. The styles include 6″ urn, 4″ lion, pony tail, doctor and matching spy holes, all designed specifically for door panels and composite doors.

Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor commented: “We’ve invested over £100,000 in stock and are already looking at other complementary products for DorPro. Our experience in composite doors and door panels has given us a great basis in which to develop and launch these new products. We’re here to make a real impact in the market.”

There will soon be a website launched at www.dorpro.com, but in the meantime call the Solidor sales office on 01782 847300 for further information or follow them @Dorpro on Twitter.
