Following the success of the greenteQ Kappa Slim and Classic Urn door knockers, VBH will add to the range with this summer’s launch of the Doctor and Pony Tail styles.
Both are hugely popular on traditional period properties, where timber doors were personalised by a huge choice of furniture styles from local ironmongers. Doctor and Pony Tail allow modern door manufacturers to offer their customers increased personalisation through a wider choice of greenteQ knocker styles.
The Doctor knocker features the flamboyant flowing lines often chosen by the Victorian professional classes. The fact that the design allows for a hefty rap on the door to wake a sleeping physician in the event of an emergency may also be a factor in the name!
Making less of a statement, perhaps, but according to VBH, no less stylish, the Pony Tail knocker offers a more compact and subtle design that provides homeowners with another attractive alternative to the standard knocker styles.
Both new knockers feature the greenteQ quick fit fixing method to speed up and simplify the fitting process, whilst removing the need to fix through the door. They also both feature the familiar groove that marks them out as part of the popular greenteQ Suite.
Doctor and Pony Tail knockers are available in PVD Gold and Polished, Satin and Smokey Chromes and will be available from August.
Gary Gleeson, VBH marketing manager, states ‘We previewed both knockers on our FiT Show stand back in April and they met with great approval. Although it’s only a small detail, the message coming back to us from installers was that the ability to offer a wide choice of knockers as a finishing touch could be the difference between gaining and losing a sale.’
