Improving door security requires protection not only against break-ins while homeowners are away but also protection from intruders knocking at the front door. The impressive UAP sliding door chains are the perfect choice for all.
The UAP sliding door chains are made from high grade steel and what makes it stand apart from other door chains is that it can exceed a breaking force of over 2kN (200Kg). This is achieved by each link in the door chain being individually machine welded, providing additional strength and resilience to forced entry!
To compliment the door chains, we have also developed hollow wall anchors. Hollow wall anchors are used to fix the screws into the plastic door frame to get a good, solid fix. The reason these are needed is because a door frame maybe 2mm thick, so there is not enough material for the screws to grip. These are especially needed when fixing many products such as door chains etc. into thick skins of uPVC panels or composite door skins.
Unlike other wall fixings, we adjusted the grip spike to get a good fix, but not making it too big so that it can shatter or crack plastic. We then specified counter sunk bolts in either Brass or Chrome, so they suit most colour by volume, and fits into our counter sunk furniture. Each pack comes with 6 fixings and plated bolts.

At UAP we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.
With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:
Tensile Strength Testing Machine
The tensile strength machine tests the resistance of a material to breaking under tension. It is used to see how well our door chains perform when pressure is applied to them. The door chains are attached to pieces of timber or plastic to see how well the fixings perform with the overall product, which gives a more accurate test on the overall product performance. Door chains are tested to 100kg and are in accordance with DHF TS 003:2012 standards:
Salt Spray Test
This machine tests the corrosion resistance of the door chains. The salt spray cabinet produces a corrosive environment, by releasing a dense saline fog into the chamber which the letterplates are exposed to. This creates an accelerated corrosion of the letterplate and allows us to test how well the letterplate would stand up in harsher environments. The door chains are tested for 480 hours, and we offer a 2 year inland coating guarantee.
UAP Ltd distributes a wide range of door security products, including but not restricted to door chains; door restrictors; cylinder guards; door stays; door closers; cabin hooks; security mail bags and rack bolt sets.
