Origin thoughts : Security is more important than ever

By Ben Brocklesby, sales and marketing director of Origin.

New research shows that almost one third of home break-ins come through the front door. With this in mind, we at Origin have introduced our latest product: the Origin Residential Door. It has been designed with heightened security in mind, ensuring optimum safety, performance and reassurance for a homeowner.

From the locks and barrels, through to the hinge design and aluminium composition, all the components of our new Residential Door combine to make for an ultra-secure system.

Like our Bi-fold Door, it offers an exceptional multipoint locking system and 3-Star barrel. There are two different locking mechanisms available, of which will be determined by the handle choice. For the doors with a bar or pull bar handle, a five-point automatic locking system with key only access will be supplied.

For those who opt for the Yale security lever handle, it comes with Origin’s unique eight-point multipoint lock mechanism with an offset spindle function for complete security performance.

The exclusive eight-point multipoint locking system combines a sophisticated style and elegance with the very latest in high performance. Chamfered 20mm linear bolts offer a smoother operation when engaging the lock, as well as giving maximum compression for increased weather resistance, while the lock and 25mm security hooks – the deepest engagement available on the market today – deliver the best in both security and weatherproofing.

Additionally, it offers two barrel choices, both of which are 3-Star British Kitemarked, proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping.

All of this, on top of the innately robust and strong aluminium profile and panel composition with specifically designed hinges, provides complete peace of mind and unsurpassed security. Without compromising on aesthetics, these hinges can be colour coordinated in any RAL colour, or are available in stainless steel.

Combining security and style with thermal performance, the Origin Residential Door has been expertly engineered for optimum energy efficiency. Both the frame and sash feature an advanced polyamide break to limit heat transfer from the interior to the exterior, while the panel is manufactured with a highly efficient Thermimax core and aluminium layers for optimum thermal performance.

Origin exclusively manufactures its own systems in the UK, combining precision engineering, expert manufacturing techniques and premium-grade aluminium, allowing us to offer an industry leading 20-year guarantee on our products.
