HARDWARE& SECURITY Double Growth »»TOTAL HARDWARE HAS celebrated another year of impressive growth with the company achieving recordbreaking sales with not one, but two locking systems from its long-standing partner Kenrick. The Leeds-based distributor has trebled its sales of Kenrick’s Interceptor high security espagnolette in just three months and has also seen sales of Kenrick’s Standard Euro Profile cylinders leap by 40% in the last year. Chris Pell, General Manager at Total Hardware, explains: “It has been a fantastic period of growth for our business and we are really pleased to mark this great double success with Kenrick. Our long alliance with Kenrick dates back to when Total Hardware was established in 2004 and it has stood the test of time because Kenrick delivers consistently high quality products at competitive prices, which is just what the fabricator wants. With such high volumes in this sector, a reliable service is essential and Kenrick has been instrumental in helping us to maintain our very high standards of distribution. Steve Williams, Kenrick’s Sales and Marketing Director, added: “We’re delighted to celebrate this double milestone with Total Hardware. Our 12-year partnership with them is built on trust, reliability and innovation.” DOORS NOW AVAILABLE WITH LEADING LOCK »»AMBITIOUS BRISTOL-BASED fabricator, The Window Outlet, one of the fastest-growing businesses in glass and glazing, has partnered with leading lock suppliers Ultion to offer high-security Ultion Cylinders as standard on all its Solidor composite doors, and as an optional extra on all of its aluminium doors. Where many standard locks are highly susceptible to snapping, Ultion’s innovative system shifts into lockdown mode when physically attacked, putting the central cam lock down, and engaging two sacrificial sections protected with molybdenum, a substance 25% denser than iron. Ultion locks have been tested to the highest TS007 standard of 3 stars, and feature 11 pins that can create a staggering 249,970 pin combinations. Also, whereas the anti-snap capabilities of many locks are completely nullified if the key is left in the lock, Ultion Cylinders are snap-proof regardless. “According to the Office of National Statistics, 73% of household break-ins focus on the front door. When end-users are selecting a door product, security is at the forefront of their mind – and offering your customers chance to upgrade to an Ultion Cylinder is the perfect way to win over security-conscious end-users,” said The Window Outlet MD Ben Warren.
