At Framexpress, we are always looking for superior quality product options, so you can differentiate yourself from the competition.

The latest addition to our range is the Ingenious Locks & Hardware (ILH) DUPLEX multipoint lock and APECS AP BSI 3 Star Cylinder, complete with a £5,000 homeowner guarantee.

We fit this top security lock combination for all our composite doors and PVCu residential doors, as standard, ensuring quality, durability and performance for added peace of mind for homeowners.

In the unlikely event that the products fail as a result of a break-in, the homeowner will receive £5K compensation, as part of the Al Secure Guarantee – a joint initiative by APECS and Ingenious. This means that your customers will always receive a higher spec as standard composite door hardware solution, guaranteed.

To ensure the highest security for your composite door installations, the ILH DUPLEX multipoint lock features five hooks, four rollers and extension teeth to accommodate the high security shootbolts.

It’s fitted with a one-piece keep and plastic roller inserts for a smooth operation and an adjustable centre latch for optimised compression. These super-secure features help the lock achieve Document Q, PAS 24:2016 certification and Secured by Design accreditation topped with a 10-year ‘Fit & Forget’ guarantee.

To complement the DUPLEX lock perfectly, the APECS AP BSI 3 Star Kitemark, Sold Secured Diamond Standard Cylinder adds a further layer of security.

It’s engineered with a unique sacrificial point, and if tampered with, the cylinder sets an interlocking cam mechanism into action which helps to prevent further damage to the lock, whilst keeping it fully operable from the inside.

A double locking mechanism is used, that features 9 pins and a restricted key profile – offering full protection from all methods of lock attacks.
