Adding the finishing touch

When a supplier of sliding wardrobe systems, window and door products needed a new supplier of glass door handles, hinges and latch systems, it turned to Blue Diamond. The project presented a number of challenges to B
The project presented a number of challenges to Blue Diamond's design engineers. Fixings in glass are difficult to engineer and manufacture. Glass is a heavy material and the tolerances are critical. In addition, all visible components had to be polished or plated to complement the clean lines of the glass. Finished parts needed to be strong and have the right 'feel'.
Blue Diamond worked closely with the customer to develop and agree the new design. The project required a range of cast and pressed components, springs, metal and plastic parts, some of which had to be plated or polished. Blue Diamond's engineers were able to improve the assemblies by enhancing their appearance, reducing cost and increasing durability.
