Could Your Door Lock Sustain A Manual Attack For Up To Three Minutes?

As a small Window and Door Installation company we are always striving to offer our local customers, in Bury St Edmunds & Suffolk, the best quality products on the market. We are an innovative business and like our products to reflect this. The technology of the window and door industry is constantly advancing so we are always reviewing products and speaking to new manufacturers so that we can look at ways to improve and build upon what we already have on offer to our customers in Suffolk. We love it when we get the opportunity to add something different to our extrusion range and have just introduced a new luxury, high security, composite door range to our existing products. The “Solidor” range is available in 18 colours inside and out including Chartwell Green, Duck Egg Blue, Irish Oak and NEW Mocha, Aubergine, Painswick Green and French Grey. Add to this the options of Black, Grey, Cream, Blue, Red, Green, Foiled White, White, Rosewood, Golden Oak and Schwarz Braun and you have 256 colour combinations to choose from! 

Could Your Door Lock Sustain A Manual Attack For Up To Three Minutes?

Solidor Video This video proves how secure the solid timber core doors are in comparison to other standard composite doors.

As you can see from the video, the Avantis lock easily passed PAS 24 for security by sustaining a manual attack for three minutes. 

The Avantis Lock is exclusive to Solidor and was recently subject to the very highest testing procedures. According to the testing house at Mila it was ‘the strongest composite door yet tested’ thanks to the hardware and the fact that the Solidor slab is a solid timber core, rather than a foam filled GRP door that other manufacturers use. This new lock provides the largest and strongest hook and bolt system in the door sector. Like many features from Solidor, this new locking mechanism carries the market’s first 25mm triangulated dead bolt, which makes for greater compression and security on a closed door. Another key feature is the deadlock, which also operates from the action of lifting the handle, rather than a key turn.
