Long lasting partnerships

Timber fabricator, Glyngary has partnered with VBH to develop a PAS24 certified door solution. Glyngary is said to have identified an opportunity to develop a door specification and security hardware package to help it stand out from competitors. The partnership also includes Yale and Accoya.

Glyngary is reported to have wanted a long-lasting product using hardware that could match the performance of Accoya, that guarantees against rot for 50 years. Corrosion resistant, with a long-projected lifespan and a proven security record and a 25-year guarantee, VBH says that its stainless steel greenteQ Coastline range ‘was the obvious choice’. It was used with the stainless-steel Yale Mantis 3 multipoint door lock which is also corrosion resistant.

The range is made from Grade 304 stainless-steel, so is said to be resistant to corrosion in the harshest of conditions. According to VBH, this is particularly relevant when using Accoya as, in common with most durable timber, there is a small amount of acid present in the wood which will attack base metal fittings. Coastline’s 25-year guarantee is the first of its kind and the range is also covered by the company’s comprehensive Q-secure security performance guarantee, which makes it ideal for compliance with PAS24.

Gary Yates, director of Glyngary, commented: “The support we’re getting from VBH, Yale and Accoya throughout the testing process is very valuable to us, as it will result in compliant products. The service we’ve had from VBH has been very good too. They have a wide range of products – and the support from Tyler Shutts and Adrian Gale in particular is second to none!”
