Developing a door lock that is secure and simple to use and easy to fitwas the starting point in the development of the new SUREFIRE multi-point lock from ERA. Already seeing significant sales following its launch at the FIT Show this year, SUREFIRE delivers effortless multi-point locking; simply close the door to engage the trigger and turn a key to deadlock.
The versatility of SUREFIRE for timber or composite doors coupled with the flexibility to have a different gearbox position depending on the style of the door delivers maximum security and effortless door operation.
For PVCu doors, SUREFIRE is coupled with SURESEAL to ensure compression and optimum alignment between door and frame before the locking points are thrown. This ensures full engagement the whole length of the lock for the best security and weather proofing
An access control device can also be added alongside a concealed motor to any SUREFIRE lock to drive the movement of the hooks and latches. Finally, with the range of Fab&Fix handles, escutcheons and accessories you also have access to the complete mechanical and decorative door package from ERA.
As Kerry Blackford, Head of Product Development at ERA explains, giving fabricators locking solutions that deliver high levels of security and added convenience for the homeowner is paramount: “SUREFIRE solves a lot of issues when it comes to front door security. Principally the effortless functionality of SUREFIRE coupled with clever design means that a door fitted with SUREFIRE will always be pulled into the correct position avoiding issues associated with misalignment and reducing calls backs.”
As with all product development at ERA, the needs of the fabricator, installer and the homeowner are at the centre of the innovation programme. SUREFIRE not only delivers many layers of security, including anti-jemmy hooks, anti-saw protection and anti-drill inserts, it also improves the overall performance of the door by bringing the door in and sealing it tightly against the frame every time.
