Exclusively from Caddy Windows
Solidor Composite Doors
Britain’s most secure composite door has just got even better thanks to Ultion, a revolutionary locking system that when locked, stays locked.When it detects attack, a hidden lock within the Ultion automatically engages, so that even when snapped twice nothing gets past it. Leaving a key on the inside of the lock won’t affect its performance either. Caddy windows is pleased to be the main Solidor showroom in the South West.
Rigorously tested, nothing beats the Ultion, not even the finest 3 star locks, making it the UK’s best and most secure lock guaranteed. If however an intruder burgles your home by snapping the Ultion lock we pay you £1000.
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.
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.
With Lock Lock, better security is built right in. Because when you lock a door featuring Lock Lock, you lock the spindle. This patented design features a simple, super-safe switch which replaces the need to turn a key to lock your door. There’s no fuss, no risk and no searching for keys. You simply press down the switch and your door is more than locked.
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 the testing house at Mila 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.
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.
