HARDWARE& SECURITY RIGHT FOR NIGHT SHOOTBOLT » » THE SECURITY SPECIALISTS AT YALE have launched a new Shootbolt lock to fit modern flush sash systems that offers the usual security credentials you would expect from Yale, with the additional convenience of a night vent facility. Along with chamfered security shootbolts, the new Shootbolt variant features a secondary cam. This addition allows for the ‘night vent’ position which enables the window to be partially opened but still locked via the window handle. This position offers a means of ventilation and can improve the air quality in a home but should only be used when someone is inside the property as the lock is more secure when fully closed. Manufactured to the highest specifications and complying with British security standards, the Yale Shootbolt Flush Sash Window Lock delivers superior security performance; safeguarding homes from intruders. It also helps to protect against the elements by delivering optimal levels of weather-proofing. Windows fitted with a Yale Shootbolt on flush sash as part of a Yale PAS 24 specification are also protected by Yale’s ‘Lifetime Security Guarantee*’ which allows fabricators and installers to take advantage of Yale’s reputation for excellence with the consumer. A Reputation to Protect » » QUALITERE WINDOWS IS THE latest installation company to fit Lock Lock security handles as standard. After on-site testing and both employee and customer surveys, Joint Owner Martin Harris announced the move, fitting all 20 showroom doors with Brisant Secure’s Lock Lock. “Lock Lock’s performance and security are first-class but it’s also the clear market leader in anti-corrosion,” says Martin. “Pitting and tarnishing is an issue in the hardware industry, but we’ve never bought cheap products as we have a reputation to protect. Customers come to us for top-of-the-range quality, so we needed a secure handle that would stay looking good. After trialling and feedback from customers on the functionality and looks, I was so impressed I made Lock Lock the standard option rather than an upgrade.” Qualitere Windows is a family-run business in the East Midlands. “We’d been looking to improve our premium security handle offer for a while,” continues Martin. “We got a fantastic reception when we started fitting Brisant’s Ultion cylinders as standard over a year ago, and I knew Lock Lock could be another game changer for us.” BRINGING HISTORY BACK TO LIFE » » P C HENDERSON HAS seen an increase in the number of enquiries from customers looking to restore original designs back to their former glory.
