ERA combines security and aesthetics

ERA has launched a dedicated suite of certified hardware that has been independently tested to the latest standards. The suite is available in a wide range of finishes and was launched to support fabricators in reflecting the latest design trends for timber, composite, aluminium and PVC-U entrance doors, according to the home security and fenestration component provider, whilst simultaneously providing homeowners with high standards of protection.

The range includes the TS 008 Shield letterplate, the TS 007 Berwick high-security 2* door handle and the TS 003 door restrictor and chain. All are available in patented Hardex finishes that match over 200 hardware and door and window furniture products within the Fab and Fix range.

Sarah Knight, ERA’s product manager, said: “As one of the UK’s leading home security and fenestration component providers, we have a responsibility to ensure we consistently support our fabricator partners in achieving complete compliance with the latest standards. However, that shouldn’t be achieved at the expense of visual appeal, which is why we have created a range of certified high-security hardware that is available in a range of unique patented Hardex finishes that offer unrivalled durability and longevity.”

Going beyond neutral salt spray testing, ERA’s prohesion testing process includes an electrolyte spray sequence with drying cycles at high temperatures to concentrate salt deposits, achieving real-world accelerated testing. Due to this, the Fab and Fix patented Hardex finish is supplied with a 10-year function, finish and security guarantee, after undergoing 1,000 hours of prohesion testing.

Also central to the portfolio of certified solutions is ERA’s new high-security 3* Euro Profile cylinder, which is supplied with a £2,000 anti-snap guarantee as well as the 3* BS Kitemarked Invincible Cylinder. The cylinder is marketed as offering five times the strength of a conventional cylinder. Independently tested and certified in accordance with TS007:2014+A2: 2018 and EN 1303:2015, the cylinder has been proven to provide the highest possible levels of protection.
