Earlier this year, leading hardware manufacturer, the Trojan Group launched one of the industry’s very few Document Q compliant letterplates. Manufactured from Stainless Steel for ultimate corrosion resistance, the TS008 Unicorn Letterplate meets the exacting requirements of TS008 which means it can be used on doorsets that need to comply with the requirements of PAS24: 2016 or Document Q of Building Regulations.
In order to help potential customers discover for themselves the importance of the new high security TS008 Unicorn Letterplate, Trojan have commissioned a short 90 second video that demonstrates the anti-fishing properties of the product compared with a standard letterplate. Tony Chadwick, Trojan Group’s Managing Director explains. “The TS008 Unicorn Letterplate has an inner protective housing and a unique concealed hinge mechanism to prevent attack. The inner flap has a positive stop feature for maximum protection from ‘fishing’ while the inner flap projection is below door handle height for added protection. When it comes to explaining these technical features of the letterplate we find that video is much more suitable so fabricators and installers can see straightaway the benefits for themselves.”
The TS008 Unicorn Letterplate has simple but elegant styling that will complement any doorface and is suitable for both composite and PVC-U doors. It is available in a full choice of external finishes including Polished, Brushed and Satin Stainless Steel, PVD Gold, Black and White. The internal letterplate can be colour coded to match the door colour.
The external flap is manufactured from 304 Stainless Steel for ultimate corrosion resistance (galvanised mild steel is used for painted finishes). The letterplate has a 25 year anti-corrosion guarantee on all Stainless Steel product finishes and there is a 10 year mechanical guarantee on all versions.
