Document Q requires secure doorsets to be fitted with handles and cylinders that meet the requirements of TS007 by offering 3 star security as part of a PAS24:2012 accredited doorset. Three star cylinders attract a price premium, which makes them unattractive for many projects. However, the combination of Trojan’s stainless steel TS007 2 Star Handle plus a 1 star cylinder enables fabricators and installers to meet the requirements in a very competitive package. It’s a combination that is proving very attractive, with very strong take up from Trojan’s customers.
Tony Chadwick, Trojan Group’s Managing Director, commented: “The take up of the TS007 2 Star handle has been superb, with fabricators indicating that the product’s 2 star cylinder guard gives a clear visual deterrent compared to the more expensive 3 star cylinder variants as would-be criminals cannot always see what is fitted to the door.”
One example of a fabricator that is using the combination of Trojan’s TS007 2 Star Handle and a 1 star cylinder is Consort Ltd. The company has recently switched to offering stainless steel hardware on its residential doors and it is using Trojan’s TS007 2 Star Handle and a 1 star cylinder on some products as part of this switch. Jeff Dunn, Head of Sales and Marketing at Consort, said: “Trojan’s stainless steel TS007 2 Star Handle helps us deliver a product that is reliable and secure. Our installers have a valuable USP which should significantly reduce costly remedial visits. The homeowners can have confidence they are investing in a high-quality product that meets all of the regulations and can keep their home and family safe.”
The TS007 2 Star Handle from Trojan is manufactured in 304 stainless steel, so as well as offering a competitively priced security solution it also offers the ultimate in corrosion resistance. As proof of this, it comes with a 25 year anti-corrosion guarantee and a ten year mechanical guarantee. It is available in a full choice of finishes including polished gold (PVD), brushed gold (PVD), polished stainless, brushed stainless, white and black powder coated over stainless
Tony concludes: “Sales figures of the TS007 2 Star Handle are proof that if you want to meet the requirements of Document Q at a competitive pricing point there’s no reason to fit anything else!”
