hardware&security ELLANOR WINDOWS CHOOSES MILA PROSECURE MULTI POINT LOCK Ellanor Windows in Bridlington, East Yorkshire, has become the latest company to switch to the new Mila ProSecure multi-point door lock for all of its PVC doors. The Swish fabricator, which supplies trade and retail customers throughout East Yorkshire and beyond, says the new Secured by Design lock meets the quality and performance standards of the lock it was using previously but at a more competitive price. A key benefit for Ellanor in using the ProSecure solution is that it can now offer customers a complete Mila solution on its doors – from the multi-point door lock to the ProSecure door handle and the ProStyle letter box. This, the company says, is a positive message in both the trade and retail markets where the quality, design and finish of the Mila products and the power of the Mila brand helps to win business. Ellanor has been using the ProSecure lock for three months and during that time has been impressed both with how easy it is to fabricate and how easy it is adjust on site if required. Cutting edge Yale Blade Window Locking now available from Sealco Sealco, one of the largest independent hardware distributors in the UK, is amongst the first to stock Blade, a new cutting edge technology window locking system from Yale that is set to take the industry by storm and make manufacturing quicker and windows more secure. With revolutionary design, the Blade espag is a fully retractable window lock that sits flush within the Eurogroove and allows fabricators and installers to easily place the keep in any position removing the potential for error when aligning cams and keeps. Frames can be pre-drilled for keep alignment to reduce manufacturing time even further. The Blade lock rotates into place compressing the gasket consistently to improve weather performance over the life of the window. Blade will also last. Tested to over 30,000 cycles, it comes with a 12 year guarantee. The Yale Blade lock connects along the full length of the keep so there’s no cam clash. This also offers greater security. The integral strength of Blade can allow some systems to achieve PAS24 security without additional reinforcement.
