SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Schwinn Hardware has introduced the Schwinn Design Assistant, a tool for selecting and specifying hardware.
Available in two versions with a total of 150 designs, the Design Assistant features a fan deck of cardstock samples with products in actual size printed on each page, providing a solution as close to having physical samples as possible without the bulk of having to carry them to every project. Using the Schwinn Design Assistant, architects, designers and cabinet manufacturers can hold up the deck to a cabinet or panel to see how it looks and whether it’s sized properly for the cabinet or drawer.
Each page of the two fan decks has the hardware shown in front and top view. All the images are actual size, and the back of each sheet has all the specification details of the product and a ruler to ensure proper placement.
“For many years, architects and designers have had to either carry actual hardware samples with them or know the precise specifications of any piece they might want to specify. Our Schwinn Design Assistant fan deck allows them to get an actual ‘to scale’ visual without having to hold up physical hardware,” says Ulrich Hauser, CEO, Schwinn Hardware in Scottsdale, AZ.
The Schwinn Design Assistant:
- Provides precise measurements included for each piece
- Includes 150 cabinet and hook designs to choose from; each shown in actual size
- Reduces the need to carry actual samples
- Includes finishes and product information about each collection included
- Offers front and top views for additional visual input
Using the Schwinn Design Assistant is similar to using a paint color fan deck. The difference with this deck is the amount of information contained on each piece.
