Think you have an unusual situation and you need advice? Contact us and we can help. Here is a super example.
We just had a customer purchase 3 sets of 96 inch "The Gears" hardware from us; really beautiful hardware that will work for many years.
What made this purchase different was the doors the guy was making for his customer. They were 90X44 inches in size and were - not kidding - lined with lead! He was worried about how much weight our hardware could handle as lead is very heavy. We helped him find data sources for the weight of wood and weight of lead and he determined a weight estimate for the doors, which fell under our weight limit of 220 pounds per door.
Now you may be wondering if this guy was a comic fan who took things too far - nope, he was building these doors for a dentist who wanted them for his X-ray booth.
The customer was Super detailed, and asked us a ton of questions about the hardware to make sure it met his requirements, as he wanted his client to be happy. In the end, our conversation gave him the confidence he needed to proceed with the project and build these doors for his client.
We will post images of the doors as soon as we get them. Hopefully they will do justice to the coolness of the project. As soon as we get them they will be up in a flash.
OK, enough Justice League jokes for one day.
