Corona Virus

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

Agetek, as with all businesses, are following closely updates by our government, the health service and our social responsibility. We know that we have some customers that have to get jobs finished as there are people trying to move into homes, or complete renovations. We are doing our best to make sure we get those jobs completed.

We are taking a number of steps to safeguard our Staff and our customers. These are as follows:

  1. The Showroom is closed. We would ask that you do not send any homeowners to us to see the showroom.
  2. All supplier meetings are off. We would strongly prefer not to have any suppliers visit us except for deliveries.
  3. Trade customers can still collect their orders, The use of gloves is mandatory, and will be provided if you do not have your own with you. Please let our own staff roll the trolleys over and back.
  4. We would prefer bank transfer and card based payments. We are currently still accepting cash, but would prefer cashless payments.
  5. Restricted access in our building. We have placed yellow lines beyond which customers cannot go. Our staff will bring your order right to the door, where you can load it into your van/truck. We would prefer if our staff do not handle any part of your vehicles.
  6. Product Returns: We would prefer if you did not do any product returns during this period. If you need a replacement, and want to get a credit for something you have, Please send in photos by email of what the problem is, as well as the invoice / delivery note that went with the product, and we will take it from there.
  7. Our staff have new procedures to recycle gloves, keeping their social distance etc. if you visit us, please be aware they are taking this very seriously as are we.
  8. Please use email to submit any orders, in preference to dropping in pieces of paper.
  9. If you have an order that you think you need to cancel, please talk to us as quickly as possible. once it’s made, its made!
  10. If you have an order that you will not be collecting for quite some time, let us know that too. We only have so much storage space, and we need to use it efficiently.

In Summary, We are currently open, with very much reduced public contact. This may change in the coming days, but for now its business as best we can. Wednesday 18th March.

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Our supplier has stopped production of the Elmau beech foil, and we are down the last roll of Tauren beech.

We are looking for an alternative, but as of now we have withdrawn beech as a color in our foiled range.

We still have Beech chipboard, edging tape, cornice and lightshield.

Drilling doors for Hinges

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Did you know that we can drill your doors for Blum hinges? We also can supply 100 degree, 180 degree and cranked hinges. We offer soft close hinges as an option in 100 degree hinges.

When drilling doors, we will bore them 100mm from the top, 100mm from the bottom, and 1 or 2 more in the middle if they are tall doors. On doors that are “Handed” because of an arch in the pattern, an inset handle or with 2 panels, we need to know if we are to drill left or right. If you do not specify, we must assume you do not mind.

Expando Hinges

We can drill for Expando or regular mount hinges.

Expando Hinges have plastic plugs that require alignment holes beside the main hinge hole

When ordering doors to be bored, be sure to state which type of hinge you would prefer. If you do not specify which type, we will drill for regular hinges.

Drilling doors for hinges is an extra cost service we offer. If it’s not specified otherwise, doors will not be bored.
