New high-security locks

Total Hardware has launched two new high-security Quad Locks.

Designed for use on PVCU windows, the new Quad locks feature bidirectional locking cams for improved security performance with a new flush sash option.

Gary Cox, director at Total Hardware, said: “Quality and security is extremely important to us and we continually evaluate our hardware components to ensure we are offering our customers the best combination of quality and value. Our high-security Quad Locks offer a wealth of features and benefits that will enhance our hardware portfolio even further.”

Both new Quad Locks have been designed to be fast fitting with no cropping and offer quick and easy compression adjustments offering time-saving benefits to fabricators.

The larger locks, 750mm-1150mm sizes, feature eight cams for additional product security. Both Quad locks are available in 7.7mm and 9mm cam heights with a choice of 20mm and 22mm backset variants. The locking cams maximise both engagement and frame clearance and, together, these features offer fabricators superior product performance. The flush variant is available in both left-hand and right-hand versions with additional cams for secure locking in the night vent position on popular flush window styles.

The locks have been tested to 50,000 cycles, corrosion resistance tested to EN 1670:2007 Grade 5, and achieved both PAS24:2016 and Secured by Design accreditations. They come with a 10-year mechanical guarantee.
