Allegion is proud to support Zane and Suzanne on their renovation project, and give focus to sustainable, energy-efficient renovation projects.

Suppliers of door hardware brands such as Brio, Legge and Schlage, Allegion’s global focus on sustainability is driving them to do more to minimise their environmental impact. This includes improving energy efficiency, reducing waste, and providing a safer environment for employees and customers.

How Allegion became involved in the project

Zane has used Schlage door hardware products extensively throughout his career “In fact, I only ever show my clients the Schlage door hardware range”, he says. “The style and finish are excellent, and I know the Schlage product is very reliable”. He adds “We also installed a Brio rail system in our office which we really liked, and we wanted to use it again for this project”.

When the renovation started to gain momentum, Zane called Allegion and explained what he and Suzanne wanted to achieve. Allegion were happy to contribute to such a worthwhile project, and provided Schlage stainless steel door hardware and also a Brio Open Rail System for the living area of the home.
