“We have built our reputation for quality and innovation by working closely with our clients, so that we can guarantee to supply premium-quality doorsets, which precisely meet their requirements. We are looking forward to meeting existing clients and making new friends at The Sleep Event, and discussing with them how we can provide the products they need,” explains Tom Moir, HUET’s UK Sales Manager.
At The Sleep Event, HUET will be featuring a full selection of timber doorsets that are designed specifically for the hotel industry, and are suitable not just for guests’ rooms, but also for boardrooms, function rooms, and meeting rooms.
This selection will include the Chorus 42 doorset, which features a multi-layer, 41mm-thick, acoustic core and high-stability leaf created by the inclusion of two steel sheets. As part of the multi-million pound refurbishment of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London, 250 of HUET’s Chorus 42 doorsets were installed in the hotel’s bedrooms and suites.
HUET will also exhibit its ISA DX43, which, at just 48mm-thick, is one of the slimmest doorsets to provide an acoustic rating of 45 Rw dB.
All of HUET's doorsets have a European and British fire rating of EN1634-1 and BS 476 respectively, with resistance to fire guaranteed for either 30 or 60 minutes.
Visitors to stand G46 will be able to see the quality and craftsmanship that have made HUET a leading producer of fire- and acoustic-rated timber doorsets. They will have the occasion to examine samples of the range of woods available and the finishes that can be supplied. HUET’s specialists will provide visitors with the opportunity to discuss, in detail, all aspects of the company’s products and range of services.
HUET will also exhibit a full-size doorset that is identical to those the company designed for the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris. Once the home of Napoleon’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, the former palace has been transformed into one of Paris’ most elegant and luxurious hotels.
The renovation process of the Parisian hotel called for doorsets that combined high technical performance with a bespoke finish. HUET satisfied both requirements by creating tailor-made doorsets finished in varnished Okoume (a type of hardwood found in equatorial West Africa) and mahogany, with matching hardwood frames.
The Shangri-La Hotel, Paris and the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London are just two of the prestigious hotel companies which have chosen HUET doorsets. Others include Accor (which encompasses the Mercure, Ibis, Novotel and Sofitel chains), Monte-Carlo SBM, Lucien Barrière Hôtels & Casinos, and Marriott of the USA.
A key reason for HUET’s growth and success is its policy of working closely with everyone involved in the decision-making process, whether they are architects, interior designers, specifiers, installers or proprietors.
Because of the importance of interior design, the company hand-makes a life-size model of its products during the approval process. This means that specifiers can see exactly what will be delivered to the site and any changes can be discussed and agreed before production begins.
HUET is headquartered in Challans, in the département of Vendée (in Western France). Founded 65 years ago, HUET, part of the JH Industries group, is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of high-performance acoustic- and fire-rated timber doorsets.
Since 1945, HUET has specialised in designing and manufacturing fire- and acoustic-rated doorsets made of timber. Every year, it produces nearly 600,000 interior doors and over 150,000 exterior doors and windows.
In addition to being a pre-eminent supplier to the hotel industry, HUET also specialises in producing fire-rated and acoustic-rated timber doorsets for a wide range of buildings, including hospitals, surgeries, health and medical centres, schools, colleges, universities, and television/recording studios.
