Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now, we are putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, a bit more information and a bit more detail about the products that we have to offer.
Today I want to talk to you about a door friction stay that we have. It's designed to produce friction when a door opens. It allows you to be able to apply a degree of friction to that door so therefore you do have the ability to hold it open at any angle that you may want to set the door at. And of course, also, by having a degree of friction if you've got an area where there is a strong amount of wind or something like that blowing against the door, then using this friction stay actually helps you control the door much better.
This is the actual friction stay here, it's quite a heavy duty device as well, made out of a cast composite. This is the stainless steel version but it's also available in a grey and also a brass version as well. So the idea is that this would actually be fitted either to the head of the door up into the frame. It also comes with a bracket as well that allows you even more permutations on the fixing as well. There is information on the site explaining how that works and a bit more of a planned drawing.
This can actually swivel as well so as the door opens this will actually swivel to compensate as the door actually hinges open and also this then slides out, there like that, as the door actually opens, so you can imagine that opening all the way to there. This particular part would be fixed to the door, so that might be fixed up to the frame and that particular piece fixed to the door and as you close the door there then, that is designed to close in tight like that.
Now, this particular one here is designed for doors around 700 to 910 millimetres wide. It comes with its standard fixing screws as well and the application of how it actually works is that as you can see here, this particular part here is adjustable, so if I was to screw that in tighter, then that actually then makes it a lot harder to actually open this particular part with quite a bit of pressure on it now and you can actually screw it up really tight and therefore then you won't be able to open it at all. Yeah, I can hardly put any pressure on that now and it will go tighter again. So once you've set it to the desired strength that you want or the desired friction then really, that's all that you really need to do. It's actually a well-built product. I got to say I'm quite impressed with this.
But listen, if you need a bit more information on that or any of the products that we have, by all means, pop online, use the live chat that we have or by all means, pop us over an e-mail or simply do it the old fashioned way and pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you and more importantly, we'd love to see you as a customer of ours. So from me Darrel and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in and catch up with you real soon. Bye.
