More about QS Products
By building trust for sixteen years, QS has worked tirelessly to become the most trusted South African brand in ironmongery in terms of quality, style, service and value for money.
QS Products was created as a joint venture in 2001 by Andrew Osborne-Young and Martin Humphry in order to supply the South African market with affordable stainless steel ironmongery and reasonably priced door controls.
Martin, the owner of Doorware, was the Managing Director of Dorma Door Controls SA from 1985 to 2001 having been the Financial Director of Union Locks (Josiah Parkes) for four years prior to that.
Andrew is the owner of Mercury Fittings, a company started in 1992 that has sole agency for amongst other products, the following:
- Lefroy Brooks
- Frank Allart
- Imperial Locks
The QS specification team consists of eight experienced specialists operating from two autonomous, fully stocked, branches in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
The signature range of stainless-steel door handles is fully supported by a full complement of stainless-steel accessories, locks, cylinders, hinges and hydraulic door controls. All products are covered by a five-year warranty and are available on an ex-stock basis. The overhead, surface mounted, door closers have full fire certification for all applications.
QS Products has sold more than 500,000 units since inception. Over the last 16 years, QS has grown into the largest supplier of stainless-steel ironmongery in South Africa. QS prides itself on being able to offer the entire range on an ex-stock, immediate delivery basis.
QS Products, Further Developments
We recognise that ironmongery is just one of the crucial elements of the access and egress of a building. Thus in 2017 we created QS Access and partnered with three other companies that share the vision of building trust to offer our customers a complete building solution. These companies, all experts in their fields, are:
- Security Equipment Centre (mag locks)
- Frost International (automatic doors)
- Silhouette (glass)
Through constant development QS Products is growing and increasingly making its mark on the South African landscape.
