Trojan extends Elite stainless steel range Trojan has announced that it has added new contemporary bow pull handles to its Elite stainless steel product range. Tony Chadwick, Trojan’s group managing director, said: “The new bow pull handles are a welcome addition to our popular stainless steel range and have an upmarket contemporary look which suites in perfectly with other products for a coordinated door hardware approach.” The Elite stainless steel range is Trojan’s premium 316 Grade stainless steel offering. The new bow pull handles join the T-bar pull handles, central door knob and escutcheons. Other suited stainless steel products include door handles, letterplates, door knockers, numerals and letters and, like all Trojan’s stainless steel products, come with a 25- year anti-corrosion guarantee. The new bow pull handles come in a brushed stainless steel finish and are designed to suite with not only the brushed stainless steel options in the Elite range, but also in the Premium range, too. The contemporary bow pull handles are available in two size options, 625mm and 1,200mm. Tony Chadwick concluded: “ By extending our Elite range with the new bow pull handles we are rolling out the anti-corrosion benefits of stainless steel to more products and opening up new opportunities for our customers to differentiate their offering.” www.trojan-hardware.com 96 HARDWA R E & S E C U R I T Y First for ProSecure Maximum security Endurance Doors has reportedly become the first composite door manufacturer in the UK to start using Mila’s ‘fastest to fit’ ProSecure door hinge. Mila says it has produced a new version of the hinge specifically for composite doors and Endurance Doors has ‘leapt ahead’ of the competition by becoming the first in the UK to start offering it to customers as its standard flag hinge option. Mila’s ProSecure hinge, which was launched last year, is a one piece unit designed to be fitted straight from the box in less than a minute. In test installations before launch, Endurance Doors’ says its fabrication team was immediately able to reduce the average time taken to fit three flag hinges onto a door from six and a half to less than five minutes and is now on target to get that time down even further to less than four minutes. Managing director, Stephen Nadin, said: “Once we’re in full production, we expect to be able to reduce the average hinge fitting time on each door by almost 50%, and when you’re making as many doors as we are, that’s a hugely significant saving. “It’s not just about speed of fitting though – the ProSecure hinge has lots of other benefits which we’re keen to pass on to our customers. For instance, it’s available in a range of colours to suit changing consumer tastes and it’s easy to adjust onsite – from the front and not just from the side.” Endurance Doors attributes much of its success to its product proposition and the fact it chooses to partner with quality, trusted names in the industry like Mila. Mila’s managing director, Richard Gyde, added: “The ProSecure hinge is an ongoing success story. It has already won significant market share in PVC-U doors and now, with the launch of this new composite door version, it looks set to do the same in that sector as well.” www.mila.co.uk MD is SBD consultant CENSolutions, supplier of quality certification in the window, door and glass industries, has announced that it has further extended its offering, with joint managing director, Mike Gaillard, becoming a Secured by Design (SBD) licensed consultant for the fenestration industry.

The new Platinum 3 Star cylinder has been designed to protect homes with its anti-snap, anti-bump, antipick, anti-drill and anti-pull technology. According to Yale, the TS007:2014 3 star accreditation means the anti-snap, British kitemarked cylinder offers an innovative solution that will deter even the most determined intruder. To achieve the highest TS007:2014 3 Star accreditation the Secured by Design Yale Platinum 3 star cylinder has been independently tested by BSI (British Standards Institution), against known cylinder attack methods. The benefit of the 3 star accreditation means no additional security door furniture is necessary to achieve the highest level within the standard. Paul Atkinson, sales director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, said: “The Yale Platinum 3 Star cylinder can work together with other door furniture, such as the recently launched Yale 2 Star cylinder pull, to make up a door set of superior security or used with any furniture of choice whilst still meeting the standards.” The Yale Platinum 3 Star Cylinder has a sacrificial break away front section designed to release if attacked. Available in both brass and nickel finishes, the cylinder has a horizontal keyway and comes supplied with three, dimple cut keys as standard and each comes supplied with a key code identification card for ease of purchasing additional keys when needed.
