Leading hardware manufacturer, the Trojan Group, has a policy of bringing competitive hardware products to the market, so it’s no surprise that their new TS007 2 Star High Security door handle has received an unprecedented response from customers since it was launched last year.
Tony Chadwick, Group Managing Director of Trojan Group explains the concept, “Our New TS007 2 Star High Security door handle allows fabricators to fit a low cost 1* cylinder and still meet Document Q requirements. This option has proven to be a far more competitive package compared to 3* cylinders and low specification door handles.
The take up of this new product has been superb, with fabricators’ indicating that the product’s 2 Star cylinder guard gives a clear visual deterrent compared to the expensive 3* cylinder variants as would-be criminals cannot always see what is fitted to the door.”
The new Trojan 2 Star high security door handle comes with a 10-year mechanical guarantee and because it is manufactured from high quality stainless steel it has a 25-year anti-corrosion guarantee too. Available in a full choice of colours including Polished Gold (PVD), Brushed Gold (PVD), Polished Stainless, Brushed Stainless and White and Black powder coated over stainless colour options.
Document Q, which came into effect on 1st October, 2015, requires all windows and door sets to meet the requirements of PAS 24: 2014 or other similar standards (which are all listed in Document Q). Tony concludes, “While this sounds like a big change, for Trojan we were well ahead of the game. The majority of our products already conform to Document Q compliance so we are ensuring our customers have the latest accredited products but at a very competitive pricing point. Since we launched the Trojan 2 Star high security door handle our sales have continued to grow month or month which demonstrates that we have once again developed a product that the market readily accepts.”
