Pickersgill-Kaye will be showcasing its portfolio of high security and custodial locking products at the Home Office’s 2013 Security & Policing Exhibition in Farnborough, during March.
The innovative manufacturer will be launching its latest model at the show, the L8774, an electro-mechanical custodial lock, which is expected to create a large amount of interest. The Leeds based company, which designs and manufactures all its locks in the UK, will be demonstrating its renowned range of Custodial Class 1 cell locks, Pass Locks and High Security Multipoint Locks (MPL). Also on show will be a range of high security slide bar and claw gate locks for perimeter security applications and the industry standard Kaye-Rota padlock.
The Class 1 Cell Lock is made from a single billet of high quality solid steel and fits all standard cell doors. Tested against 300,000 door and handle operation cycles, the cell door locks are considered to be the best on the market and are used by various police forces at home and abroad including the Met.
Also on display will be Pickersgill-Kaye’s Class 2 Pass Lock and Auto slam Pass Lock. Heavy duty with double sided key operation, they have unique functionality coupled with a robust reliability ideal for high security applications, while the MPL includes emergency and panic exit devices and specialised function locks with modular lock cases to suit either panic bar, paddle handle or lever operation.
The Push Pad claw locks and Slide bar gate locks for perimeter security applications are also fitted in solid casing suitable for a variety of gate standards and have ingress protection against dust, moisture and insects to increase defence against corrosion and provide a life-long reliability.
Following another successful year, Pickersgill-Kaye is recognised as one of the UK’s leaders in design engineering and manufacture for custodial and high security locking solutions and, through its growing product range, is able to offer a complete commercial package for new build and refurbishment projects across the UK and overseas.
All Pickersgill-Kaye products are designed on state-of-the-art CAD software and are manufactured entirely in the UK using high-tech production techniques. Its cell locks undergo extensive and challenging testing on key operation, lock construction and overall durability and resistance to attack in order to satisfy the operational requirements of the national and international custodial market sectors.
Pickersgill-Kaye’s Business Development Manager for Security and Engineering products, John Moore, is looking forward to the Security & Policing Exhibition 2013 (organised by the Home Office Centre of Applied Science and Technology which has expanded its remit to include National Defence issues as well as police matters).
He commented: “We are delighted that once again our locks will be taking centre stage at this important security exhibition. The comprehensive range of products we have on show will attract many visitors at the event to our stand.
“Our custodial and high security locks are already in use to protect national critical infrastructure assets sites and police cells across the country, while due to our continuing export drive we are successfully selling globally to regions such as South East Asia, the Middle East and other EU countries including Ireland.”
