Aztec Windows ‘had to offer’ Ultion as standard on ALL doors


Katrina Earl says take security seriously

Coventry based Aztec Windows, fabricators of one of the largest ranges of PVC-U windows and doors in the West Midlands, has standardised in Ultion, Brisant Secure’s high security flagship cylinder lock, for all doors.

Aztec Windows (Coventry) Ltd Director Michael Hagan explains: “We’re a fabricator that offers customers high quality products with unrivalled service, so we’re always looking to improve our product range. I started to talk to Brisant about Ultion after reading about it in the press and on social media. I tried using Ultion as an upgrade but it quickly became clear that I had to offer it as standard because real security shouldn’t be an option. From October 1st last year all our doors have come equipped with Ultion.”

Ultion has achieved Sold Secure Diamond (SSD) having passed real-life security tests that most other cylinders can’t. There is no time limit in SSD tests. Testers choose from a range of tools and try to break the cylinder in any way they know how. If the cylinder breaks, it fails. If it doesn’t, it passes. Testers stopped trying to break Ultion after 2½ hours of testing.

“It seemed silly to sell insecure doors when we have a solution to secure them,” adds Michael. “We’re talking to all our customers about Sold Secure Diamond and Ultion to make sure they know what they mean by real security. So far the reception has been great because our customers would rather pay more for a secure door.”

Brisant Secure CEO Steve Stewart comments: “Security is a problem in the window and door industry. But the fact that fabricators like Aztec Windows are taking positive steps to improve the security they sell is reassuring, and marks a real change in the way the industry is thinking.”

Brisant Secure is led by cylinder lock expert CEO Steve Stewart. Steve designed Brisant’s range of innovative, premium quality, top performance cylinders, which have been widely accepted by the locksmith market and now making rapid in roads to the replacement door market. Having previously run ABS and designed Avocet’s ABS lock, many consider Steve the leading cylinder lock designer in the UK.

In an industry that relies on £3 Euro cylinders, standards and guidelines are complicated and often confused, so installers are misled as to the real security they are selling, and homeowners think they are more secure than they are. Brisant wants to change that.

Sold Secure Diamond testing has no rules. All cylinders are tested using any and all means known to breach cylinders. There is no time limit to how long a trained MLA locksmith can have to dissect the lock. If the lock breaks, it failed. If the lock isn’t breached by any attack, it is awarded Diamond status. Cylinders that have achieved this rating are truly the locks that lock.
