With Laidlaw now celebrating a new chapter in its history as an independent business, the company has relaunched its popular Orbis collection.
While the brand remains the same superlative quality that customers have come to expect, the collection has been supplemented with new levers and has been renamed. Orbis 500 is ideally suited to the contract market, while clients can also choose from Orbis 600, 800 and 900, which provide an extensive range of architectural ironmongery for architects and specifiers for all applications up to high-end residential or commercial projects.
It’s good news for anyone in the building and construction sectors who require exacting standards and technical expertise in premium door hardware products and door signs.
The extensive Laidlaw architectural ironmongery range is suitable for a wide range of market applications – from residential to commercial and from healthcare to educational establishments. It includes handles, locks and closers and, to assure safety and performance, every element is tested to the latest BS EN standards.
Managing Director, Peter O’Brien said: “We remain one of the country’s leading names in architectural ironmongery and our comprehensive and fully co-ordinated Orbis range demonstrates that commitment to quality.
“We pride ourselves on manufacturing premium products that are both stylish and incredibly durable and providing only the highest quality products and best technical expertise.
“Because we work closely with manufacturing partners and ensure we are fully up to date on the necessary market requirements, our products remain at the forefront of excellence and offer superb value for money.”
