CARMEL, Ind., Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Schlage®, a brand of Allegion that has been creating stylish, innovative door hardware for more than 95 years, today introduced Schlage Custom™ Door Hardware. This major innovation features premium style alongside combined interior locks that offer both bed/bath and hall/closet functionality in one. This universal functionality allows homeowners to change from a doorknob to a lever, a traditional look to a modern look—even a non-locking door to lockable—in just minutes, without having to remove the inner core of the lock. Premium handlesets in ¾ trim and 2-piece styles will be available in the Spring, so homeowners can coordinate their hardware style inside and out.
Schlage Custom Door Hardware will make its debut at the International Builders' Show (IBS) on Jan. 9 at Schlage booth #W3183. Ted Roberts, Allegion's Style and Design Chief, and Amy Matthews, contractor, DIY aficionado and HGTV®, DIY and TheDesignNetwork.com host, will be onsite at the booth to meet with attendees and discuss vignettes they've created showcasing the style possibilities of the new collection.
"We developed Schlage Custom Door Hardware to inspire homeowners and trade professionals alike to see door hardware the way we do – as an essential part of the home's style. This new line is highly customizable and offers premium designer features like low profile trim, concealed screws and lustrous, long-lasting finishes at a much more affordable price point than competitors," said Roberts. "It's even easier to shop the line, with the Combined Interior offering which includes one lock that works for both bed/bath and hall/closet doors. In addition to all that, homeowners can easily update the style and finish of the hardware later without installing a whole new lock."
Other key differentiators of the Schlage Custom Door Hardware collection include:
- The line is backed by outstanding customer service, sales and merchandising support.
- Quick-shipping is available for its dealers when ordered through wholesalers.
"When Schlage first approached me about working together to introduce the line at IBS, I knew this evolution in door hardware was something I wanted to be a part of," said Amy Matthews. "Schlage Custom hardware makes it easy to create a consistent look throughout the home that also adapts to the changing life of any room with just one flexible system. There's truly nothing else on the market like this at such an affordable price point."
