Ambitious Bristol based fabricator The Window Outlet, one of the fastest-growing businesses in glass and glazing, has partnered with leading lock suppliers Ultion to offer high-security Ultion Cylinders as standard on all its Solidor composite doors, and as an optional extra on all of its aluminium doors.
Where many standard locks are highly susceptible to snapping, Ultion’s innovative system shifts into lockdown mode when physically attacked, putting the central cam lock down, and engaging two sacrificial sections protected with molybdenum, a substance 25% denser than iron.
Ultion locks have been tested to the highest TS007 standard of 3 stars, and feature 11 pins that can create a staggering 249,970 pin combinations. Also, whereas the anti-snap capabilities of many locks are completely nullified if the key is left in the lock, Ultion Cylinders are snap-proof regardless.
“It’s a fact – locks matter,” said The Window Outlet MD Ben Warren. “According to the Office of National Statistics, 73% of household break-ins focus on the front door. When end-users are selecting a door product, security is at the forefront of their mind – and offering your customers chance to upgrade to an Ultion Cylinder is the perfect way to win over security-conscious end-users. It’s also a way for our trade clients to differentiate themselves in an increasingly crowded and competitive market.”
The Ultion is now a standard feature on the Window Outlet’s composite door, which is made with the Solidor slab and Kommerling outer frame, and is an optional upgrade on all aluminium doors, which are made with a choice of AlUK, Reynaers and Exlabesa (formerly known as Kaye Building Systems) profiles.
The Window Outlet are famed for offering a 24-hour quote turnaround and quick lead times on all aluminium products – which was one of the main reasons company MD Ben Warren was recently shortlisted for the Trailblazer Awards, an event which is run by prestigious South West magazine, Business Leader. The company supplies installers across the South West of England and beyond.
