Hot topic

Growing demand for high security hardware has been reported by Carl F Groupco.

The introduction of Document Q, which stipulates adequate prevention of unauthorised access and safe means of escape for new buildings, has triggered an increase in fabricator enquiries for compliant high security hardware solutions.

Security standards are also a hot topic for hardware manufacturers developing affordable solutions to achieve accreditation. For example, the Trojan Sparta 2-Star door handle, introduced in the 2017 edition of Carl F Groupco’s catalogue, is intrinsic in achieving TS 007 when used alongside a 1-Star cylinder, such as the CFG1-Star profile cylinder, the company said.

John Mitchell, technical manager for Carl F Groupco, said: “We ensure that we understand the standards that impact hardware and we share this knowledge with our customers to support them both in product selection and throughout the testing process. Document Q has been a particularly significant development that has impacted the industry and is driving change in hardware selection.”
