Two additions to UAP’s Soterian letterplate range

Soterian letterplate with the inward opening option

UAP has enhanced its Soterian letterplate range with two new innovations: the Soterian TS 008 iPlate and an inward-opening option. Both of the new additions have been cycle tested for 20,000 cycles to underscore durability, the business’ representative said.

The Soterian TS 008 iPlate external letterplate was developed for installation with the UAP Soterian Slim internal letterplate section and is for use with any 44mm or 54mm composite or timber door. Created for the high end retail market and new-build developments, the new iPlate enables specifiers to benefit from the robust security and ease of installation associated with UAP’s Soterian TS 008 letterplates, according to UAP’s representatives, while offering a choice of aesthetic.

Julian Roberts, UAP’s technical director, said: “When we developed the Soterian letterplate system, we envisaged a range of mix-and-match options that would enable customers to select the right Soterian letterplate for each door and property. For the inward-opening model we studied Victorian letterplates and the inward-opening systems that have been popular for generations, taking that concept and adapting it to include the security, ease of installation and aesthetic considerations that have made our Soterian range so successful.”

UAP’s new inward-opening option offers a more traditional design combined with a contemporary look suitable for modern homes. It features a shiny surface finish in mirror-polished stainless steel, satin stainless steel or PVD-gold-coated stainless steel.

The new inward-opening Soterian letterplate has rounded and bevelled edges for a designer look, business leaders have said. The product’s pivoting stay mechanism reduces the internal flap opening for protection against key fishing and lock manipulation. There are no fixings to the exterior of the letterplate, preventing the outer frame from being unscrewed.

Of the two new innovations, Julian said: “We believe they will make Soterian even more popular across the delivery chain, from door manufacturers and architectural ironmongery specialists through to contractors and homeowners.” For further product information, see
