Hardware supplier, Kenrick, has joined forces with Carl F Groupco, the UK distributor of quality window fittings, to create what it describes as ‘a bespoke hardware solution’ for the Peder Nielsen reversible window system.
The special version of Kenrick’s Interceptor high security locking system is the result of six months intensive work to develop a system that would suit the unique profile of the Peder Nielsen window and achieve PAS 24:2012 to meet Secured by Design requirements. The new product incorporates a specially developed 11.5mm high mushroom cam to fit the profile and provide optimal performance on the window, which is particularly popular in social housing and multi-storey buildings.
Richard Duncan, director at Carl F Groupco, said: “We have been working with Kenrick for more than a decade now and have a great deal of confidence in the quality of their products and service. We had no hesitation in approaching them to develop this tailor made solution which comfortably passed all the required security tests both in-house at Kenrick and at an accredited UK test house.”
Steve Jones, managing director at Kenrick, said: “We were very pleased to collaborate with Carl F Groupco and develop this bespoke version of Interceptor. Its launch underlines our commitment to develop new and innovative hardware solutions for the market, which provide the very best in performance, security and convenience for the end user.”
Secured by Design approved, Interceptor comes with a 10 year mechanical guarantee and has reportedly been successfully tested to more than 100,000 operations of opening and closing the window. It also provides more than 240 hours of intense salt based corrosion testing to exceed the requirements of BS7412.
