HARDWARE& SECURITY TS008 UNICORN LETTERPLATE COMPLIANT WITH PAS24:2016 » » THE TROJAN GROUP’S TS008 Unicorn Letterplate remains one of the few letterplates on the market that complies with the requirements of PAS24:2016, the latest standard for enhanced security performance. Trojan’s TS008 Unicorn Letterplate is a masterclass in the type of intelligent design for which the company is known. It features an inner protective housing with a unique concealed hinge mechanism to prevent attack, an inner lap with a positive stop feature for maximum protection from ‘fishing’ and a projection that is below door handle height for added protection. It is manufactured from 304 Stainless Steel for ultimate corrosion resistance and has simple but elegant styling that will complement any doorface. It is suitable for both Composite and PVCu doors and is available in an array of colours as well as Polished, Brushed and Satin Stainless Steel and PVD Gold. PAS 24:2016 is a primary reference in the Building Regulations Approved Document Q1, which relates to security in dwellings. It supersedes the requirements of PAS:2012 and changes to the latest specification include more robust requirements for letterplates and a wider scope that increases the range of security doorsets. TRICKLE VENTS ADDED TO RANGE » » VBH (GB) ADDS TO ITS GROWING range of high performance hardware with the Link Vent Mk2 - a next-generation trickle vent from Glazpart. Designed for both new-build and the Repair, Maintenance and Improvement (RMI) markets, the innovative redesign allows homeowners to position the vent so airflow efficiently passes through while reducing draughts. Complying with Building Regulations Part F1:2010, the new Link Vent Mk2 incorporates aerodynamic features to help direct airflow through the vent. The external canopy has been reduced to just 25mm for improved noise reduction and a more attractive external appearance without affecting airflow performance. Available in two sizes, 2500 EQA delivers similar performance to a traditional 4000mm2 vent while the 5000 EQA is significantly better than a 4000mm2 vent. The 5000 EQA also features a split internal flap for ease of use and added comfort. Dan Powell, VBH Regional Sales Manager (South) comments: “The Link Vent Mk2 has excellent added features to its predecessor. Supplied with pre-fitted fixing clips, the clips automatically centre the vent in the rout, ensuring a level fit. The screw cover caps are supplied pre-fitted, but are removable if installers choose to screw-fix the vent instead.” £5,000 FOR 5,000 HOURS TO GM FUNDRAISING » » BRISANT SECURE HAVE DONATED £5,000 to GM Fundraising, to celebrate the revolutionary Lock Lock door security handle surpassing an unprecedented 5,000 hour salt spray test.
