Allegion adds Brio 286DL Locking Handle to its Established Range of Brio Dual Point Locks

Allegion UK, a leader in safety and security, has added the 286DL locking handle to its established range of Brio dual point locks for exterior folding applications. 

It is ideal for both residential and commercial facilities, joining other Brio accessories for the 286 dual point lock used on Weatherfold 4s and 5c.

Designed to ‘suite’ with Brio 288 lever furniture, the 286DL locking handle has been specifically design engineered to secure timber and aluminium folding panels. The single action handle is a stylish alternative to two flush bolts. The product also enables the doors to fold flat.

The intelligent security-conscious design of the 286DL is discreetly hidden inside the aluminium stile or edge of a timber panel with minimal machining and quick fixing points thanks to the patented hinge blocks.

A variety of keepers allow for neat dressing and accurate alignment of the throw and panel, which improves the performance of perimeter weather seals.

This new addition allows joinery manufacturers to offer a lock and handle for access doors that can be used with a cylinder of choice.

David Newton, Brio UK general manager, explains:
“We routinely research and review the marketplace for folding and sliding door hardware systems, to see where Brio can add value for customers.
 “The 286 dual point lock was developed as an alternative to using flush bolts on panels. The lock is less intrusive than flush bolts and also has the very considerable advantage of eliminating any bending down or reaching up to lock or unlock the door which is the downside of flush bolts. This makes it very friendly with regards to disabled access as wheelchair users will not have to rely on help to open doors.  
The new locking handle is stylish, secure and simple – the perfect accompaniment for our folding door systems.”

Added to the design and manufacturing excellence is the company’s rigorous product testing and quality assurance.  The 286DL locking handle is cycle tested in excess of 100,000 operations and comes with a 10-year warranty. It’s available in a variety of finishes for matching flexibility, including stainless steel for coastal areas.
