See the difference your window handle can make

21st April 2020

BLU Window Espagnolette Handles

There’s no doubt that flush casement windows with timber look joints are disrupting the industry and becoming an increasingly popular choice with customers.

So the last thing you want is to get left behind or overlooked by fitting the usual cheap, typical PVC window handles. And when it comes to flush casement window aesthetics, the type of handles you fit can make a massive difference.

See the Difference that Quality Window Handles Make

To show you just what a difference they make, and how easy it is to add value to your windows by upgrading the handles, we’ve shot a short video below.

Rehau PVC Flush Casement Opera FrontThe reality is that handles can make a significant visual difference to your flush casement windows, helping them stand out. And with homeowners increasingly interested with window aesthetics you can use it to your advantage. In the video we’ve used a Rehau Rio Flush Fit Window, which has been perfectly complimented with our range of BLU Window Espag Handles in a variety of finishes including the popular Oil Rubbed Bronze. You can clearly see the difference for yourself and envisage how a quality handle can elevate your Flush Casement Windows.

Increasingly, customers appreciate and want the finishing touches and detail - and a handle with the right style and quality can deliver just that. After all, when the windows are fitted, the handle is the thing they all touch and feel the most.Today, many fabricators are investing heavily in both design and equipment infrastructure to help make quality flush casement windows. But they are often missing out on a prime opportunity to fit a handle upgrade - whether that’s contemporary window handles or traditional window handles – that will enhance their windows.

Yet for a proportionally low cost you can dramatically enhance the look and feel of your windows by simply upgrading the handle as we demonstrate in the video. Whether you're creating a contemporary, classic or traditional heritage style, our BLU range has a quality handle to suit your flush casement windows. Made from 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel, they’re built to last and come with a Lifetime Guarantee, providing extra peace of mind and quality assurance for your customers.

ModernHandleOperaHandleOur BLU range of window handles are available in a variety of finishes to suit different styles and come as part of a suited range of door and window hardware.

Don’t lose out on sales opportunities by ignoring the value that quality handles can make. We are confident you will see the difference a window handle upgrade can make, by fitting these handles in your showroom.

COVID-19 Coastal Group Update as at 1st April 2020

1st April 2020

Durodeen Beading - Your silent skilled joiner

Message from Loren - our CEO - Reference COVID-19

As the COVID-19 situation continues to change rapidly I wanted to take a moment to update you how we’re handling the situation here at Coastal. Our focus is two-fold:

  1. To protect our customers and our staff, following the government advice and guidelines, and
  2. To continue to provide you with an uninterrupted service.

I sympathise with the difficulties faced by all – since we started we’ve always been more than 'just a seller of hardware'. Our philosophy has always been to think beyond products, and focus on building long-term relations by helping our customers grow, delivering value and solutions.

 

Ordering and Stockholding

At present we are well stocked with all of our core items which you can continue to order between 9am-4pm by phone on 01726 871 025, or by email to [email protected] or 24/7 on our online store at www.coastal-group.com.

Remember to login to view your account prices on our website. If you have not yet set up an online account with us, please email [email protected] to request your login.

 

Deliveries

We will keep providing our delivery service to you until such times as guided otherwise.

Our carriers – Tuffnells - are still operating a next day delivery service on orders placed with us before 3pm.

 

Our Staff

Whilst we're keeping the business open to serve you, around 80% of our staff are working remotely from home. Any employees working from our premises are maintaining social distancing and regular hand sanitising.

You can contact us on our usual channels between 9am and 4pm - [email protected] or on 01726 871 025.

You can also continue to contact your Account Managers who are working remotely and available on email and mobile.

 

How can we help?

If there is anything either myself or any of our staff can do to help you through this current crisis then please reach out to us.

Now is a good time to adapt, plan and organise your business so you're ready to run in a changed landscape. As Abraham Lincoln once said "If I had nine hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first six sharpening my axe."

Many customers have been contacting us over recent days to discuss development projects they are working on during this time they cannot actively sell. We're available as and when you need us - whether to discuss a new suite of hardware to enhance your door or window range, how we can help you with Part Q, request product images and info for a new website you may be working on or just to simply talk to someone.

 

Stay safe, look after each other, and together we can get through this.

Kind regards

Loren Jenner
