Service & Maintenance

Acorn has the experience and products to meet continuing expanding markets and client’s expectations, with a large proportion of our work awarded to us on a repeat order basis, from our ever growing client base. We are here to support and guide our customers throughout all stages of the project, from submitting sample blocks at pre-scheduling stage, to the detailed master key schedule, offering on-site technical assistance to general telephone enquiries.

Our ironmongery is usually delivered to site by our own transport and packed and labelled into door sets at no extra cost, to match the ironmongery schedule produced. On completion of every project, we issue a fully detailed maintenance advice manual along with master key charts, schedules, fixing instructions and details to assist the end user in the long term maintenance of the ironmongery fitted.

All ironmongery specified and supplied by Acorn, is supported with a manufacturer’s mechanical guarantee.
