Total Hardware and UAP celebrate longstanding relationship

Leading independent hardware supplier Total Hardware and door hardware supplier UAP are celebrating a longstanding relationship that adds value to both companies.

Total Hardware sources Fullex, the leading brand of high-security multi-point locking systems for doors, through UAP which has led to a mutually-respected partnership. Chris Pell, General Manager at Total Hardware, says: “Fullex locks have been part of our portfolio for over 15 years. We always had a great working relationship with Fullex, and it’s something that continued when UAP purchased Fullex back in 2016.”

Barry Halpin, Group Sales Director at UAP, adds: “We enjoy a great relationship with Total Hardware. Like us, it’s a strong, proactive business and, as a result, the partnership has gone from strength to strength over time.”

Fullex is one of the most recognised brands in the fenestration and specification markets, and its multi-point locks are suitable for PVC-U, composite, timber and aluminium doors. The range includes the respected Crimebeater and XL locks alongside Secured by Design and PAS 24:2016 certified products, all with a 10-year guarantee.

Chris says: “Fullex has a well-deserved reputation for product excellence, and customers seek it out by name.”

As one of the UK’s leading independent trade stockists, Total Hardware continues to evaluate its offering to ensure they deliver the depth and breadth of products its customers need.  And with the rise in smart technology, Total Hardware will be adding the newly launched IONIC Electronic Lock by Fullex-ai, giving their customers a further competitive advantage.

The new IONIC is an ultra-secure electronic lock enabling access via a smartphone App. Manufactured for timber, aluminium and composite doors, the IONIC is the first in a series of ‘smart’ products set to be launched under UAP’s Fullex Ai brand.  Chris said: “The new IONIC door lock is the next generation of smart technology.  It’s secure, easy to use and presents an additional upsell for our customers. It’s an exciting product to be adding to our range.”

Chris continues: “We are a dedicated and customer-centric business that proactively offers new hardware solutions that will add value to our range and to our customers’ businesses. We also believe in stocking the stalwarts that never stop adding value – Fullex locks from UAP are the perfect example and we look forward to further developing our successful relationship into the future.”
