HARDWARE BOTTOMS UP » » P C HENDERSON IS PLEASED TO announce the launch of its much anticipated Securefold Bottom Rolling hardware – a folding door solution that carries the load of the doors at the bottom of the system, removing the need for major structural building support. Designed for timber framed exterior doors, the new hardware is ideal for applications where top hung structural support is often lacking such as in conservatories, extensions, orangeries and outbuildings. Securefold Bottom Rolling allows P C Henderson to cater for a much more niche type of market where perhaps product options for end users are slightly limited. As well as utilising advanced bottom rolling technology, the system also features some further innovative design elements, including the roller being purposefully situated directly underneath the door making it barely visible when the doors are closed. Eliminating the need for an often- restricting upper beam also frees up design space – a feature which may be of interest to architects and designers. Fergus Pickard, Product Development Director at P C Henderson, comments: “The system is extremely easy to install as it uses pre-existing components from the Securefold range.” Do your suited cylinders meet Kitemark requirements? » » YALE DOOR AND WINDOW Solutions is now offering a re-pinning service that maintains the British kitemarked accreditation of its maximum security Platinum 3 Star cylinder. Yale’s Platinum 3 Star cylinder is Secured by Design approved and provides the highest level of security. To achieve TS007:2014 3 Star accreditation it has been independently tested by BSI (British Standards Institution) against known cylinder attack methods. Paul Atkinson, Sales Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: “Under this new offering, customers who take the Platinum 3 Star cylinder can now have it at our Centre of Excellence for Door Products (Willenhall) under our BSI kitemarked license. This means there is no compromise to the cylinder as it still maintains the superior Yale quality and security and, more importantly, maintains the Kitemark accreditation. If cylinders are suited and re- pinned by non-accredited organisations they no longer qualify as Kitemarked products.” Delivering multiple benefits to fabricators, installers and homeowners alike, the maximum security Platinum 3 Star cylinder has been designed to protect homes with its anti-snap, anti-bump, anti-pick, anti-drill and anti-pull technology. Available in both brass and nickel finishes, the cylinder has sacrificial break away front section designed to release if attacked.
