Composite door manufacturer, Solidor, has added to its ‘superior’ range of security hardware with the Winkhaus AV3 autolock – a new automatic multipoint locking system. Solidor’s security range already includes what it claims is the most secure locking system Ultion, and the most secure door handle on the market, Lock Lock, which is said to affirm Solidor’s ‘leading position in proven security’.
The AV3 autolock is said to ensure immediate secure locking when the door is closed. Key features include a magnetic trigger in the frame, two self-locking sturdy hooks for claw action and two sealing elements for correct closure. This means that when pulling the door closed, the magnetic release triggers the sealing elements and sturdy hooks for automatic locking. This reportedly ensures that the door remains securely locked and firmly in its frame, even without additional locking. It is also said to reduce stress marks on the door frame and dampen the closing sound of the automatic locking system.
A daytime latch function is included as standard in the lock for all Solidor doors, and a simple button within the keep disengages the lock, so the door can be opened from the outside without a key to avoid users getting locked out from their homes.
Solidor technical director, Pierre Mifsud, said: “Our solid timber core composite doors are the most secure in the market, so it’s important the hardware we use is top of the game too. The addition of the AV3 lock means our customers can now benefit from even more choice on security. It is particularly relevant for installations where a guaranteed compression from the auto lock is needed.”
