ERA’s Fab&Fix range; showing that beauty is more than skin deep, as an attractive range of matching door and window hardware meets an unrivalled level of strength and durability, courtesy of the range’s unique Hardex coating.

Decorative hardware adds the finishing touch to door and window projects, with the ability to make or break the overall look of the project; the Fab&Fix range incorporates over 200 products in three distinct styles – Classic, Architectural and Heritage, with no less than eight complementary Hardex finishings.

Fab&Fix products look great and will also stand the test of time, proven by rigorous prohesion testing carried out across the product range.

Prohesion testing, which is designed to expose even the slightest of coating weaknesses, is the only method of corrosion testing to provide true peace of mind in ensuring long-lasting performance in the real world.

Ben Penson, ERA’s Technical and Quality Director, commented: “We moved on from neutral salt spray testing (NSST) a long time ago as it isn’t representative of real world conditions. Instead, we use far more rigorous prohesion testing to put Hardex through its paces.

“This combines an electrolyte spray sequence with drying cycles at high temperatures to concentrate salt deposits on the hardware.”

“Hardex can sail through 1000 hours of this barrage, confirming it’s still the most durable finish on the market.

“That being said, there’s still no replacement for the rigours of the field and Fab&Fix products have racked up plenty of test hours since the brand was launched 30 years ago.”
