74 • HARDWARE&SECURITY PROUD SPONSORS OF THIS PAGE Westminster Chelsea Barracks enlists Aspex » » ASPEX, ONE OF THE UK’S LEADING architectural ironmongery companies, will supply doorsets to Chelsea Barracks, a luxurious residential development in Westminster. Aspex will be supplying Novista Riser Timber Doorsets to the £3 billion range of townhouses and penthouses. The Novista Riser, with a timber door leaf, has been developed to help blend access and riser doors into the adjoining wall so that they are virtually invisible with no architrave, and concealed door frame. The Novista Riser Timber has a solid timber core, and has been tested to both FD30 and FD60 fire safety standards and is acoustic rated to 35dB. The door leaves are hung on concealed hinges that are three- way adjustable, which helps to ensure that there is a consistent gap around the door. They can be locked with either a square or security key. Ashley Burberry, MD at Aspex UK, said: “One of the benefits of the Novista Riser Timber Doorsets is that they can be assembled in a matter of minutes using our unique connecting system, and provide a rigid frame which is ready for installation. Our doorsets are an ideal solution for this project as they will create a minimalistic and contemporary look and feel which will blend into the surroundings.” CHOICE WITHOUT COMPROMISE » » SECURITY EXPERT, ERA HAS launched its Extreme shootbolt locking system, offering up to three versions of high quality window security. The heavy duty ERA Extreme has been certified to PAS24 standards, with the standard version benefits from a combination of mushroom cams and shootbolts. Upgrading to either a centre deadbolt or a combination of cams and centre deadbolt provides additional security features and enables the fabricator to provide that choice to customers allowing them to upsell with increased locking points on the Extreme3. For maximum window compression and ‘around the corner’ security, there is also the option of adding 3D pins to the corners of an Extreme window, which provide ultimate window security and ensure protection against attacks from every angle. ERA Customer Services Engineer, Steve Ward said, “The Extreme shootbolt lock has been designed to offer the fabricator choice when it comes to premium window lock systems. The more advanced combinations offer more locking points and the shootbolt up to three times more contact area with the keeps, for absolute security.” Available for use across all domestic window sizes, the Extreme is easy to fit and features visual locking points for added appeal amongst the end consumer.
