UAP OPTIMISES FLEXIBILITY WITH NEW MULTI-POINT LOCK
UAP, the specialist in locks and hardware for doors and windows, continues to expand its product range with the launch of Flexi Lock.
Thanks to a revolutionary design, the multi-point lock can be paired with a vast range of rose handles, offering fabricators, installers, and consumers more choice and flexibility.
“The popularity of rose handles is growing rapidly, especially in the new build market,” explained David Jennings, CEO of UAP. “From our own research, we know that more customers want to use these handles on front doors to match interiors and provide a more contemporary appearance throughout a property.
“In response, we wanted to develop a multi-point lock with more design freedom. The Flexi Lock is compatible with lever handles on rose as well as traditional handles on a backplate, providing a highly flexible solution which also maximises security and reliability.”
Keeping it simple
Launched under UAP’s Fullex brand, the Flexi Lock is suitable for timber, composite and aluminium doors with a 45mm lock backset.
Ideal with 1* or 3* cylinder, it has a non-handed easily reversible latch. Quick and easy to install, the Flexi Lock is prepared in the same way as the Fullex XL Crimebeater lock.
UAP’s high security escutcheon is also available with the Flexi Lock. Designed to colour match the door handle, this further enhances aesthetics. Security features include a bevelled edge, making it a lot more difficult to grip the escutcheon with pliers to pull it off, and high tensile strength fixing bolts, which secure the escutcheon to the door.
In line with the latest design trends, UAP has bolstered its range of door handles with several new additions, which can all be paired with the Flexi Lock.
Introduced by UAP’s Intelligent Hardware brand, the new products include the ‘Calla’, ‘Fern’ and ‘Lyra’ lever handles on round rose as well as the ‘Ava’ lever handles on square rose.
Designed in-house and following customer feedback on shapes and styles, the range is targeted at the high-end residential sector. Each handle features a contemporary design and is available in a variety of finishes, including a new matt black option plus polished chrome, satin chrome, and gun metal grey.
Uniquely, the handles have been developed to operate with the lift and lock function, which is has been made possible thanks to a mechanism created by UAP’s design team.
Other handles in the range offering the lift and lock function, and which can be used with the Flexi Lock, include the Enterprise, Jade, Ruby, Falcon, and Truro plus the Ventura, a range targeted at the developer market plus the Nevis stainless steel range.
Each handle can be purchased with matching accessories and comes with a five-year guarantee.
One for all
“Innovation is at the heart of UAP enabling us to keep evolving our range and meet the changing needs of our customers,” added David. “The Flexi Lock is the latest example of this proactive approach. Cost effective and affordable, it provides one multi-point lock to secure every type of door and eliminates any design constraints.
“Combined with our recently expanded range of lever on rose door handles, the Flexi Lock means fabricators can offer their customers a high quality, versatile design which improves the security of a front door and meets different lifestyles.
“When choosing our products, customers can also be assured of high stock levels, fast deliveries, and technical support and guidance.”
The Flexi Lock comes with a 10-year mechanical warranty and a free registration scheme. For further details or to download the Flexi Lock information pack, visit: www.uapcorporate.com
