Established in 1996, UAP Limited has been running for over 20 years, and in this time we have become a leading household name in the UK as a door hardware supplier, offering not only the finest door hardware and security products, but also key cutting machines and specialised locksmith tools. With over 3,500 product lines in stock, which include door knockers, viewers, letterplates, handlesnumbers and letters, as well as door and window security products including window restrictors, door chains and the brand new Soterian TS008 letterplate, there is something for everyone.

All items are perfectly suitable for both commercial and domestic purposes and can be customised or personalised with our engraving machine if needs be, adding logos, text or images to any product. So if you have something specific in mind then please do not hesitate to ask.


We test all our products to the highest and latest standards, and we have been awarded Secured by Design and BSi Kitemark accreditation for a majority of our security product ranges, helping them to pass Document Q standards. We also have a large range of 1 hour and 30 minute fire rated hardware, including Certifire accredited products which use our specially designed heat absorbers.

Our 1* UAP+ euro cylinders, and the new 3* Kinetica euro cylinders are taking the market by storm. Available in a range of sizes and up to 5 different finishes, we have in-house locksmiths who can create custom keyed alike cylinders or can help you design simple of complex mastersuite systems – ideal for apartments or tower blocks.

In 2016 UAP took over Fullex Locks, one of the oldest manufacturers of multi point locks. We can now offer a full range of MPLs for PVCu, timbers and composite doors, including the famous Fullex Crimebeater. Other locks include patio door locks, which go perfectly with the UAP patio door handle, as well as the Gemini double door lock and the Exodus panic exit system.

Through Tradelocks, we also provide tools for domestic and auto locksmiths. Our team of experts has collaborated with highly skilled, innovative engineers and locksmiths such as Chris Belcher and Martin Pink, to design and devise our fantastic, unique signature range of entry tools. They have also developed a range of security systems which can be found in many of our security products, such as the Patented Chris Belcher anti bump timing pin system which is used in our euro cylinders.

As well as this, we have launched MAX6MUM SECURITY (MAX6), a collection of retail packed door hardware and security products designed for DIY stores and trade counters. Each product is high quality and architecturally specified, whilst being low cost and easy to fit, meaning consumers can upgrade their current home security in seconds. The brand is endorsed by ex-Coronation Street star Sean Wilson, who appears in all the advertising and promotional videos.
