UNION, part of ASSA ABLOY, Security Solutions, is improving ease of installation across a wider range of jobs through its new extended StrongBOLT® range.

Known for its superior strength and exceeding the requirements of BS3621:2007, the StrongBOLT® British Standard 5 lever mortice lock fulfils the security needs of home insurance policies. However, installers can now benefit from an extended StrongBOLT® range, allowing them to save time, without compromising on quality.

UNION’s new StrongBOLT® range of 5 lever, 3 lever, bathroom locks and Euro and Oval profile cylinder lockcases enable installers to benefit from its time saving properties across a wider range of jobs.

The range is designed using the same common footprint, allowing for quick and easy door preparation, as each door can be prepared in exactly the same way. Plus, the unique chamfered dead bolt design with hardened rollers for increased side load resistance provides increased strength and durability.

StrongBOLT® locks also have an easily reversible radius latch, using UNION’s unique SwitchLatch technology. This allows installers to simply pull, twist and turn to adjust the lock, so it is suited for the handing of the door; saving time, enabling installers to complete jobs faster, and therefore improving profitability.

The new StrongBOLT® range features an anti-rattle adjustable strike, which allows on site fine-tuning once installed, to eliminate snagging. The range is also supplied with radius splinter guards to ease installation further, requiring only a drill bit to provide a professional finish.

Tina Hughan, Marketing Director of ASSA ABLOY, said: 
“The original StrongBOLT® mortice lock is known in the market for its quality, durability and value for money. A number of installers fed back to us that they would benefit from having these features across a wider range of products. So, we extended the range, and further developed StrongBOLT® to save installers time when fitting locks to all projects, from bathrooms, to front doors.

“The extended StrongBOLT® range is a great example of why UNION is the first choice for the trade. Over the years, UNION’s product innovation has been led by convenience and quality, with this complete offering from StrongBOLT® showing how UNION is helping installers prepare for any kind of call, from new builds, to emergency repair and retrofit jobs.”
