A new series of step-by-step videos for installing door hardware is now available to help installers ensure optimum door performance the first time around.
The new videos from ARRONE, a HOPPE brand, give information and guidance on the installation and maintenance of the AR1500 door closer, AR880 single panic bolt and AR915 mortice escape lock.
Each product has a series of three videos – product overview, installation and maintenance – that have been produced to provide a quick and easy way for installers to access the technical information they need.
The product overview videos highlight the specifications, features and certifications to help make sure the correct product is being selected for its intended use. The installation videos show everything from what is in the product box and measuring up through to how to use the template provided to guarantee a perfect fix. Advice is also given on the checks to do after initial installation. To complete the series, a maintenance video is also available to help know what to do when it comes to future inspections and to make sure all is working correctly.
Small errors can lead to inadequate performance
Rob Adams, technical manager for ARRONE, said the videos have been created to ensure that all of the people who have contact with the products have the information they need to specify, install and maintain products correctly. “Even the smallest of errors during the installation and poor maintenance can lead to inadequate product performance of door hardware," he said. "These videos are to help eliminate those errors. They provide a simple step-by-step process for what needs to be done as well as having overlaying text displayed on the screen, making the videos more useable by more people.”
The new AR1500 and AR880 ARRONE videos are available on YouTube with the AR915 videos set to launch later this year.
ARRONE products are designed and manufactured to complement the HOPPE range of door and window hardware. Within this extensive range are door closing devices, panic and emergency exit devices, hinges, rim and mortice locks, door and pull handles, access control, signage and accessories. Many of the products in the range are extensively tested and certified to the very latest British and European standards where applicable and certified in line with national regulations.
