Working with established manufacturer partner FUHR, Carl F Groupco has created a bespoke stainless-steel locking package for Senior Architectural Systems PURe® aluminium door range. Carl F Groupco’s hardware met the fenestration system company’s requirements for quality and innovation for its high-performance door profile, which features an expanded polyurethane thermal barrier for advanced thermal performance.
Carl F Groupco’s brief was to source stainless steel multipoint locking solutions to address every door type in the PURe® range including lever, key wind up and SmartSecure electronic operated single commercial doors, panic/emergency escape and French doors. Working with FUHR, a tailored package of door locks was created to Senior’s exacting specification, all with bespoke keeps designed specifically for the profile. Flexibility of the hardware supplied enables special extensions and add-ons for full multipoint locking for doors up to 3m high.
Commenting on the choice of FUHR locking solutions supplied by Carl F Groupco, Mark Wheatley, Senior’s Technical Director said:
“Our relationship with Carl F Groupco dates back to January 2016 when the hardware distributor first worked with us with the supply of FUHR multisafe lever operated door locks for the PURe®FOLD door range. The FUHR brand was a natural choice as they are one of the most trusted names in the locking market with a product range and ability to fulfil our requirements that couldn’t be matched by any other supplier.
“As a leading fenestration system company, we offer an extensive range of aluminium and composite timber architectural façade systems. We are constantly looking for products, processes and service enhancements to make us stand out from the crowd: this ethos of innovation is supported by Carl F Groupco.”
Supporting Senior’s commitment to supplying products that deliver performance and durability, all hardware provided by Carl F Groupco for PURe® products has been tested to PAS 24 to the most extreme tolerances and maximum door heights to ensure complete range compliancy.
