HARDWARE&SECURITY New retro lock to save lives in style Award-winning window lock supplier Jackloc has created a new retro-look restrictor to combine safety with style. Jackloc, which exports its unique window and door restrictors all over the world, has come up with the new transparent design to fit in with the modern trend for a more stripped-down, utilitarian look to fixtures and fittings. The lock has all the features of existing Jacklocs but has a chrome finish with a transparent sleeve to reveal the metal cable beneath. ‘Improving safety and reducing the risk of falls from windows is still the driving force behind our work’ It was produced after two prestigious hotels in Dubai asked Jackloc to create a purely polished chrome lock, to fit in with the modern décor in their rooms. Emma Wells, Director of Jackloc, said: “Improving safety and reducing the risk of falls from windows is still the driving force behind our work. “But, with this new retro-style product, we can cater for different modern trends and tastes. It is vital now, with people’s increasing interest in interior design, to provide a product that can fit in with this environment. “By appealing to modern tastes, we hope to appeal to a wider range of customers, and thereby help save more lives. “We believe this new product could open up a whole new market, offering a design which fits in with a variety of settings – whether the rustic charm of a cottage, the minimalist chic of a contemporary apartment or the characterful features of a renovated Victorian home. “Safe does not have to mean dull or stuffy – the new retro lock combines style with substance, making safety more appealing. “We are really excited by this idea, which has been suggested by hoteliers in the Middle East. It’s not only potentially a huge deal but it really opens up the way in which we design our new products moving forward.” Family-run firm Jackloc, which created the original universal window restrictor 11 years ago, also recently unveiled a new ‘push-and-turn’ design which doesn’t need a key to lock it into position or release it. ‘Safe does not have to mean dull or stuffy - new retro lock combines a style with substance, making safety more appealing’ To find out more, go to www.jackloc.com or call 01455 220616.
