Ultion Lock

It seems only fitting that the UK’s most secure composite door now features the country’s most secure locking system; the Ultion.

It’s called the ‘Ultion’ because it offers the ultimate in locking protection, all with a £2000 homeowner guarantee*, capable of sensing an attack and subsequently engaging via a hidden lock to prevent intruders gaining entry, even when snapped twice.

Analysis has shown that the Ultion easily outperforms the very best 3 star locks in a variety of different tests and when locked, stays locked.

No key, no chance of burglary; the Ultion really is that good.

Winkhaus AV4 Autolock

Introducing the cutting-edge Winkhaus AV4, the newest advancement in automatic multipoint locking systems. With this innovation, your door automatically locks when you close it – no need to lift a handle or use a key.

Enjoy the convenience of an optional daytime latch, providing temporary and flexible entry and exit without requiring a key. The magnetic release feature activates the locking mechanism, safeguarding your door frame and reducing the noise during operation.

Experience 40% lower operating forces, making it effortless to unlock your door using a key or thumbturn. Upgrade to the Winkhaus AV4 for a smarter and more user-friendly locking solution.

AV3

The AV3 locking system is an automatic multi-point locking system with independently acting hooks for claw action and sealing elements for a dynamic contact pressure. By pulling the door closed, the sealing elements and the sturdy hook are triggered by means of a magnetic release on the frame and the door is secured against undesired entry. This ensures that the door always remains securely locked and remains firmly in its frame even without additional locking.
The sturdy hooks, sealing elements and latch can be retracted manually using the locking cylinder or door handle.

Heritage AV2

As you would expect from a pioneer in the composite door market, we've pulled off yet another first in the door market with the introduction of the AV2 Heritage Door Lock. This new lock satisfies the need for traditional looking rim latches on composite doors, yet with the benefit of high security, multipoint locking. The AV2 is seen as an upgrade from the standard Key Wind Up and traditional rim lock used on our doors. Up until now, modern multi-point locking systems haven't lent themselves to doors that feature pull door furniture, particularly Georgian and Edwardian period doors and it has been a topic of discussion for the composite door sector.

The AV2 Heritage Locking System has the euro profile locking cylinder at a similar height to a traditional round cylinder and the lock is operated automatically as soon as the door is closed. This key feature means that an external lever handle is not required to operate the locking points and the lock can be opened externally by turning the key a quarter of a turn or deadlocked with an additional full turn. From the inside, the door can be opened by an internal thumb turn, again with a quarter turn. The door is automatically locked when closed from the inside or outside and the key is then required to gain entry from the outside. The AV2 has been engineered and manufactured in Germany as a quality product and is Police Secured by Design and PAS23/24 accredited.

Avantis Lock

The Avantis Lock is exclusive to Solidor and was recently subject to the very highest testing procedures at a UKAS accredited Test Centre. According to an independent testing house 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.

The Avantis lock easily passed PAS 24 for security, which requires that the lock can sustain a manual attack for three minutes. In fact after two men had attacked the door for five minutes, they gave up to test the Solidor hinge, which also comfortably exceeded the required specification. Look at our video to see for yourself just how secure our doors are. Solidor can boast that not only are their doors some of the most secure in the market, they are also some of the most innovative!

Key Wind Up

Our Key Wind Up locking systems are used on doors where there is no locking handle, but traditional pull door furniture. Typical Edwardian and Georgian period doors had large pull handles and knobs and also our luxurious Italia Collection features the Key Wind Up locks, to enable the introduction of some very striking contemporary door handles. We also incorporate Key Wind Up locking when our traditional hand made antique door furniture is specified. Behind the Key Wind Up lock is an STV Cobra 2 mechanism, which is tested in accordance with DIN18103 (burglar resistant doors) and approved by major UK insurance companies.

The deadbolt and hooks are thrown by turning the key and it also features a secure locking mechanism using sintered metal gears, which ensures a long service life. The STV Cobra 2 has been tested in accordance with PAS23 & PAS24 standards and the deadbolt can withstand in excess of 4.5kN end load, to comply with the additional Police 'Secured by Design' initiative. Reliability is provided by the fact that it has been endurance tested to 100,000 cycles and 30,000 cycles under load.
