New standards of security and extra peace of mind have been added to the Framexpress range of PVCu and composite doors, complete with a £5,000 AI Secure Guarantee for homeowners.

The new, improved security comes from the Ingenious Locks & Hardware (ILH) DUPLEX Multipoint lock which has five hooks, four rollers & extension teeth to accommodate high security shootbolts. It’s PAS24:2016, Secured by Design (SBD) and Document Q compliant with a 10-year ‘Fit & Forget’ guarantee. This is fitted with a one-piece keep with plastic roller inserts for super-smooth operation and an adjustable centre latch for compression optimisation.

The DUPLEX lock is completed with the APECS AP BSI 3 Star Kitemark, Sold Secure Diamond Standard Cylinder. Engineered with a unique sacrificial point, if tampered with, the cylinder sets an interlocking cam mechanism into action, preventing further damage whilst keeping the lock operable from inside. It has a double locking mechanism with 9 pins and a restricted key profile, offering protection from all methods of lock attacks. It is anti-bump, anti-pick, anti-drill and anti-snap, with added plug extraction protection.

The partnership of ILH’s DUPLEX lock and APECS AP cylinder gives installers a top security solution backed with a £5,000 break-in guarantee to pass onto homeowners.

Stuart Green, Director at Framexpress says: “Our philosophy at Framexpress, is ‘higher spec as standard’, so adding this level of security to our doors was a no-brainer. Security is at the top of the list of priorities when homeowners are choosing a new front door, so being able to offer a genuine, £5K break-in guarantee is a big benefit.”

The new lock is backed by CLUB Framexpress marketing support, complete with videos for installers to
use on their own websites and social media channels.
