Ultion’s unique ‘Lock-Down Mode’ has been designed to stop burglars gaining entry even when the cylinder is put through the most aggressive attacks. It is BSI Kitemarked TS007 3*, has achieved the Master Locksmiths Association’s Sold Secure Diamond, and is Secured by Design. Brisant CEO, Nick Dutton, said: “Ultion isn’t just a secure cylinder door lock, it comes with a free 10 year £1,000 guarantee against lock snapping. Ultion sells doors because it isn’t just a cylinder door lock – it’s a complete security ecosystem, and that’s why door manufacturers, installers, and homeowners love it. “We’ve grown incredibly fast so far, and have no intention of slowing down. There’s a lot more to come from Brisant Secure!” www.ggpmag.com February 2017 THE UK’S CHOICE 0121 521 2180 SPECIALISTS IN FIRE RATED GLASS AND GLAZING NORTH SCOTLAND EAST DERBY 01773 712 920 INSTALLATION BIRMINGHAM 0121 521 2180 MANCHESTER 0161 728 8080 EDINBURGH 0131 526 4141 UK BIRMINGHAM 0121 521 2180 SOUTH COLCHESTER 01206 222 090 Yale Door and Window Solutions has announced that it is the first hardware manufacturer in the UK to obtain the BBA certification for its window product range. The BBA certification is an industry recognised symbol of product quality and is distinctive in that all certified products are not only subject to a QA assessment, but also have to pass a full product and manufacturing process audit every year. This testing includes laboratorybased testing, online evaluation, product inspections, life expectancy assessment, a quality management review and a training review, which all need to be passed to a high standard. Grant Stratford, technical director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, commented: “Unlike the BBA assessment reports, where the products are assessed once and then no further evaluation is conducted for five years, the certification scheme inspects the product and factory on an annual basis. This proves the ongoing consistency of the product’s performance and the manufacturing process – giving the end user added peace of mind and confidence in the product’s reliability and longevity. “We previously held the BBA certification for our Defender and Defender egress hinges, but are thrilled that this now also covers the Yale hinge and Virage handle. We are also currently in the process of obtaining the certification for the Yale shootbolt” Paul Atkinson, sales director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, added: “The BBA certification helps to reinforce the quality of our window hardware and is another example of our continued effort to provide customers with products they can trust. “This certification is a recognised guarantee of product performance, letting our customers know that not only have the products been independently tested to ensure they conform to the required standards, but that our factory is regularly inspected too.” Yale says its range of steadfast high security window hardware is also tested to the police approved ‘Secured by Design’ standard.
