Together with our client, we produced a door handle installation system that aided professional joiners and significantly reduced installation time.
We wanted to fulfil the product's purpose whilst still ensuring that it had a responsible product lifecycle.
The purpose of the jig is to allow a user to quickly mark and rout the rebate for a door hinge of lock, using a standard hand drill. The jig will clamp directly to the door, enabling the user to rout various sized rebates to accommodate different size hinges and lock face plates.
We had to create an aesthetic device that would make the lives of professional joiners easier when it came to fitting a door handle. This had to be a universal product that would work on multiple applications. The product had to be designed to be portable and easy to use.
Whilst making a functional product, we had to be aware of the material, manufacturing processes & assembly as well as disassembly needed to ensure it has a responsible end of life plan.
