Twinbolt is a sophisticated locking system for exterior folding doors whereby one simple turn of a handle engages a 22mm throw to securely lock the doors at the top and bottom of the system. Designed as a stylish and more concealed alternative to flush bolts, which require manual locking in two separate areas, we anticipate the product to be a popular addition to the range.
New features include the system being able to work with any euro cylinder lock meaning installers have the freedom and flexibility to use their preferred choice of lock – as well as an increased throw of 22mm, providing added security. This also provides installers with greater flexibility in regards to the gap between the door and the frame, an important factor due to timber doors being known to expand and contract after installation.
A range of accessories are available to add to the refinement of the product including a stylish Malta Handle Kit and routing rubber cover strips available in a variety of colours. Finer details such as the inclusion of a factory set handle height (1050mm) and easy adjustment of the top lock rod – to suit standard and non-standard doors heights – demonstrates the high standard of design and manufacturing from P C Henderson.
Andrew Royle, Sales and Marketing Director at P C Henderson, commented, “Although the previous version of Twinbolt worked extremely well, customer feedback told us that it required increased flexibility. The new system will accept any standard 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”.
Developed as a direct result of customer feedback, the system is available in five kit variants suitable for top hung, bottom rolling, mortice and non-mortice Securefold systems as well as our heavier weight capacity system, Securefold 150.
Securefold is a an exterior folding door hardware system which is available for top hung wooden doors weighing up to 50kg, 100kg or 150kg as well as bottom rolling doors weighing up to 80kg. A high security version of the product – Securefold Ultra – is also available which Twinbolt can be used with.
