FIGHT UGLINESS


Design has an impact on everything. 

 

Good design can be very difficult to pull off.

MIghty forces conspire against designers, builders, and owners who try to execute spaces with integrity. 

The battle can hinge on a single unrealized detail or an incomplete spec.

Just forgetting something basic (like a doorstop), can leave a bad impression in the end.

There's the constant fight to keep on schedule and on budget without losing the ideas that inspired everyone. 

 

index-d can help you win that fight.

index-d can guide you to the right hardware solution to fit both the form and function of your design. We have the best hardware available anywhere. Not just the Featured Solutions on this site, we can provide something for every part of your project.  We provide you with all the support you need to integrate our hardware into your project, specified in a way that reassures everyone that it will work. We make sure that the specification is understood and supported all the way through the process so that your design intent is intact when all is done. We can provide the literature and samples you need to help you sell your idea. Whether you are clueless about hardware and it's the last hurdle you need to jump, or you're a total hardware geek, we work with you to make the process of specification as deliberate and efficient as possible

 

If you're a MILLWORKER or FABRICATOR

index-d is a knowledgeable and experienced partner. We can provide detailed engineering and installation support. Whether you are a large CNC/BIM-driven shop or a one-person out-of-the-van operation, we make sure you have everything you need––tools, CAD files, drawings, and samples, etc–– to finish the job efficiently and on time. We understand the challenges of bringing new technologies into a shop, and therefore, have to be very good at educating our customers on new hardwaret. If our hardware is going to succeed, it is in your hands.

If you're an OWNER or DEVELOPER : 

index-d shepherds the product information through the entire design-build process so that higher performance solutions can be realized in your building project in the most economical way. Our focus is on fighting the ugliness that results from decisions based on the assumption that what's best for the bottom line is to purchase the least expensive solution. We work at the high-end of the market bringing efficiencies to every stage of the spec-purchase-install-maintain cycle so everyone involved to knows and can consider the better solution. 

Our involvement does not stop with the last delivery to the site. We understand the value for you (and our manufacturers) that the hardware you purchase is supported throughout the entire life of the building.

Fewer Choices for a Reason

Fewer Choices for a Reason


We are constantly searching and evaluating solutions for every part of the spec, but we're very picky about what we do end up offering. Sometimes there is only one product in a certain category that meets our criteria, and that we're willing to support. Our manufacturers will tell you how exacting we can be. We figure there are plenty of places to source the cheap stuff. That road leads to job site wincing, and costly callbacks. We keep our choices limited to the stuff we know will work for the project, for your customer, and for the reputations of everyone involved. 

We won't sell ugly junk.
