Ground-Breaking Remote Locking System Introduced By Solidor

April 28th 2014

Living up to their reputation of leading the way in composite doors, Solidor can now integrate the revolutionary blueMatic AV2-B battery operated automatic multi-point locking system into its complete selection of contemporary composite solutions.

Created by Winkhaus, the blueMatic AV2-B is operational via a remote control device, similar to most motor vehicles, with the locking mechanism engaging automatically and immediately upon closure of the respective front or back door for instant security.

The remote control is functional up to a range of 30 metres away from the door and there is a possible 18.4 billion, billion rolling codes with the code scrambling each time the lock is utilised.

AA battery functionality does away with any need for an electrician or trades person and users can expect to get a full two years of usage (up to 10,000 cycles) before any required battery replacement.

The blueMatic AV2-B also complies with the forthcoming EN15685 European Standard for multi-point locks, including annex EN14846 electronic access devices and has been tested in doorsets to PAS23/24 durability and security standards.

Solidor believe that keyless operating systems have the potential to become as commonplace in composites as they are in cars and were therefore keen to capitalise on the opportunity to gain a stranglehold on this aspect of the market and become a launch partner for the product.

Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor Group concludes: ‘We’re delighted once again to be a launch partner with Winkhaus. This is yet another industry first to add to our growing list, as we push composite door manufacture and specification forward.’

Justin Harris, commercial director, Winkhaus UK Ltd, comments: ‘It’s important for us not only to develop cutting edge multi-point locking systems, but to work with the leading pioneers in door and window manufacture. For the last two years we have built an incredibly close working relationship with Solidor which we believe will continue for many years to come.’
