New twinbolt locking system

PC Henderson has launched its new Twinbolt locking system for use with its exterior door hardware system, Securefold.

Twinbolt is a locking system for exterior folding doors whereby one turn of a handle engages a 22mm throw to securely lock the doors at the top and bottom of the system.

It has been designed as more concealed alternative to flush bolts, which require manual locking in two separate areas.

The system can be used with any euro cylinder lock, and has an increased throw of 22mm. This feature also provides installers with greater flexibility in regards to the gap between the door and the frame, an important factor due to timber doors often expanding and contracting after installation, the company said.

A range of accessories are available including a handle kit and routing rubber cover strips available in a variety of colours.

Andrew Royle, sales and marketing director at PC Henderson, said: “Although the previous version of Twinbolt worked extremely well, customer feedback told us that it required increased flexibility. The new system will accept any euro cylinder lock which makes the system a lot more future proof for any future lock or handle changes.

“The system as a whole is the perfect add on for our Securefold system; it’s discreet, stylish, convenient, requires effortless operation and we’re confident it will be received well by the market.”
