Tradelink Trades Up To Kenrick Door Lock
Tradelink Window Solutions has strengthened its link with Kenrick after choosing the high security Excalibur door lock for its ‘Homeguard’ branded PVCu doors.
Tradelink wanted to further enhance its trusted Homeguard brand with a locking system that was guaranteed to meet the highest security standards. Having reviewed a number of systems, the team chose Kenrick’s Excalibur door lock. The companies worked closely together to finetune the lock before it was fully tested in-house to ensure that it comfortably achieved PAS 24 to meet Secured by Design.
Jim Moody, MD at Tradelink, explains: “We looked at several systems and eventually opted for Kenrick’s Excalibur door lock because it’s a proven and robust solution that we knew would guarantee years of trouble-free service for homeowners. They supported us throughout the transition, so much so that they’ve now taken the top spot on on our supplier list.”
Every PVCu door made by Tradelink is now fitted with the lock and Kenrick trained the firms fabricators on how to fit them correctly. They were impressed with the design of the product, particularly the ease with which the lock and keep can be directly aligned.
The lock features three sintered steel hook bolts, which are supported by two steel anti lift pins for added security and three roller cams to provide compression and very smooth operation. The lock is fully extendable to give the fabricator maximum flexibility and the gearbox is sprung on both spindles, which eliminates the need to buy more costly sprung handle sets. A one piece keep is available as are individual hook roller and centre hook latch and roller keeps. It has been function tested to in excess of 100,000 cycles and exceeds the requirements of BS EN 1670 Grade 4 (severe) rating for salt spray corrosion resistance.
