Manufacturers’ choice
Fail-safe, no quibble
Solidor has launched a new, 5-Star Security guarantee worth £5,000. Installers can now offer this guarantee to homeowners who buy a Solidor with a TS007 3-star Ultion cylinder and 2- Star Lock Lock handle.All homeowners have to do is register for the guarantee within 14 days of installation, and they’re covered for up to five years.
“It’s a fail-safe, no quibble guarantee that totally removes the risk of purchase,” says Gareth Busson, head of sales and marketing at Solidor. “If a burglar breaks into a Solidor with a Lock Lock handle and snaps the Ultion 3-Star cylinder, the homeowner can claim up to £5,000 of uninsured losses.
Pembrokeshire-based Trade Frame Manufacturers went to the FIT Show 2016 specifically to look for new machinery. Committing to purchasing a pair of machines from Kombimatec was an easy decision to make according to Trade Frame’s Russ Evans.
The company went for a 4HDV four combination head welder and 6 Axis CNC corner, transom and cruciform cleaner. Evans says: “The fact that it is a UK based manufacturer was a huge plus for us.This way if we ever need any replacements parts or a service it will be easy enough to sort out.”

Rehau windows and doors have been selected for a new major project secured by SEH Commercial in partnership with manufacturer Climatec.
The Rosebank project of 37 new residential dwellings for the contractor Mizen Build will see a total of 90 new Rehau Agila sliding doors installed at the site in North London which will be complemented by Rehau’s Total 70C windows.
buttons for each head that enables the machine to be operated from any head. Essentially two machines in one, it can be used as 4 heads together, 2+2, 3+1 or 1+3.
The EV475 6 Axis CNC corner, transom and cruciform cleaner is the fastest and most reliable of its kind.With two separate sets of cleaning tools, each with their own independent programmable movements, it can work on both sides of the joint at the same time. This speeds up the overall cycle time because transoms and cruciforms can be cleaned in one complete clamping sequence. ❐
No other door manufacturer offers that.”
The Lock Lock handle from Brisant Secure was introduced to the market at the FIT Show, with Solidor as its official launch partner. Flick the switch on the inside and Lock Lock’s unique, patented spindle block is activated, so the door can’t be opened from the outside, even if the cylinder is breached.“It also looks fantastic, and complements our range perfectly,” says Busson.
“With the 3-Star Ultion cylinder PAS24:2016, approved document Q and Secured By Design as standard, Solidor is already the most secure composite door on the market. Lock Lock sets us further ahead, and we’re putting our money where our mouth is by offering a unique guarantee that sells itself.” ❐
The two products were selected for a number of reasons, including meeting the client’s brief for performance, the thermal and acoustic credentials, and the large sizes – particularly concerning the Agila door.
The wide range of colours available was also a key factor in selecting Rehau, with the frames specified in slate grey externally and white internally, meeting the required aesthetic of the architect. ❐
