New lock offering

Coventry-based Aztec Windows now offers the autoLock AV3 from Winkhaus across its range of composite doors.

The AV3 lock is now available as standard on all its Solidor Italia doors, while the AV3 Heritage version can be specified as an upgrade on the Traditional range.

Michael Hagan, Aztec Windows director, said: “The AV3 fits perfectly with our range of top-quality designer composite doors and it’s already proving popular with our customers. As soon as they see it, they say ‘we’ll have that’. They think it’s fantastic.”

Launched last year, the AV3 multipoint autoLock features a ‘daytime latch’ function that delivers added practicality for the end-user by allowing the door to be opened from the outside without a key when activated. This facility is useful when instant access is needed over a short period of time, for example when carrying in shopping bags.

Mike Rushen, Winkhaus national sales manager, said: “Since the launch of our state-of-the-art AV3 autoLock, our customers are discovering how it can increase the versatility of their door ranges, in turn further enhancing their product portfolios and their offer to homeowners.”
