Gate and Fencing Hardware
Designed to provide superior gate security, the GATEMATE® Euro Profile Long Throw Lock from Birkdale features a unique, hardened core bolt design, with a high-security six pin lock barrel and High Security Escutcheon, making it far harder to cut through. Additionally, as the bolt used on the patented solution is of a greater length than those used on standard systems, the locks are not affected by a gap between the gate and gatepost.
Ideal for high-level security illumination in commercial, retail, and domestic environments, as how Knightsbridge is describing its trio of LED floodlights in 6000K Daylight. The three floodlights come in 100W, 150W and 200W and 9200, 14100, and 18400 lumens respectively, with die-cast aluminium casings, and offer instant ignition, making them suitable for use with LED-compatible external sensors.
Traditional designs and operating mechanisms with modern smooth-running systems and durable timber frames – that’s the promise from Patchett Joinery for a range of Sash Windows. The units meet all of today’s thermal insulation, draft proofing, and noise reduction demands, whilst the wood sliding sash windows can be created to any specification, with latest versions including curved frames.
With the demand for outside space soaring, platform balconies have become the latest addition to the SMART Balustrades portfolio. Steel frame platform balconies are subject to planning, but can easily be attached to the walls of properties and are a cost-effective way to add additional space and value to homes.
It is the complete control of single or multiple skylights through Wi-Fi connected smart phones – and virtual assistants like Siri, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home – that makes Smartsquare from Sunsquare unique in the flat-roof skylight market. In addition to asking Alexa to open and close the skylight, users will be able to programme the Smartsquare to automatically open and close the skylights based on weather conditions, humidity, inside temperature, and sunrise or sunset, as well as the user’s proximity to the building.
Whether it is an orangery, full rear extension, basement conversions or roof terrace, TuffX Infinity rooflights are designed to increase the flow of natural light into the home and offer an effective modern alternative to roof lanterns. A sleek, contemporary yet low-maintenance aluminium finish, along with a hassle-free ‘drop and bolt’ installation that requires no additional assembly on site, makes the units popular with the trades.
One touch of a pre-paired wall switch is enough to control the Velux Integra roof windows. The technology can adjust windows, blinds, and shutters, whilst rain sensors automatically closing the units at the first sign of a downpour. Velux Active with Netatmo takes the concept further, with smart sensors that continuously monitor temperature, humidity and CO2 levels in customers’ homes and adjust their roof windows to create a healthier indoor climate.
