Solidor has chosen the dedicated Winkhaus Stable Door Lock (SDL) for its stable door that has helped the product to become the first stable door to achieve a Secured by Design (SBD) license.
SBD is a national police initiative developed to specifically encourage and recognise manufacturers who design security into their products. Ensuring products like doors and windows meet stringent physical security standards reduces crime by improving security of homes and commercial buildings.
With a unique laminated-hardwood timber core, the Solidor composite door is structurally strong and secure. This strength means it can be split into two sections, which support the improved functionality of a stable door while providing the essential security requirement.
Gareth Busson, Head of Sales and Marketing at Solidor says their decision to specify the Winkhaus multi-point locking system was largely influenced by its ‘ability to meet the robust physical security standards’ demanded by SBD accreditation.
Designed for timber and composite doors, the Winkhaus SDL is a purpose-made locking system comprising two separate locks. It is supplied with a substantial 20mm faceplate to allow for increased machining tolerances. A sprung latch and nickel-plated steel deadbolt provides maximum strength in the centre of the door, while 45mm and 55mm backset options allow for a wide range of furniture options.
Gareth comments: “Our commitment to making the most secure composite doors as standard now includes stable doors. They are an increasingly popular choice with homeowners and using the Winkhaus SDL means we can assure them that they meet the highest possible standards of security, quality, aesthetics and ease of use.”
