High security residential lock for New York housing

Marks USA : 23 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Marks USA has won another USA green building contract for the use of Grade 1 stainless steel Mortise Locksets in the Visionaire Development in New York
High security residential lock for New York housing
Marks USA Custom Lockset Division will provide security and style at The Visionaire in New York City; another reference in its prestigious list of condominiums that have chosen to use Marks Grade 1 Mortise Locksets. The Company's Custom Lockset Division manufactured solid stainless steel trim of modern design for the thirty-five storey, two-hundred forty seven unit luxury condominium. Marks USA's custom lockset design matches the striking architectural form of The Visionaire, located at the southern tip of Battery Park City, a ninety-two acre community with thirty-five acres of open park space bordering New York's Hudson River.

Architect Raphael Pelli of Pelli Clarke Pelli, envisioned streamlined contours and focused on how The Visionaire was perceived from within, optimizing natural light and river and city views. The Visionaire has received LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council marking it as the greenest residential condominium in the United States. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a nationally accepted Green Building Rating System, developed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and provides a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction. MARKS USA Custom Lockset Division locksets are manufactured from metals using mixes of virgin and recycled metals (post consumer) to reduce environmental impacts from extracting and processing virgin materials.

Marks USA, a NAPCO Security Group Company, was founded in 1977 to manufacture mortise locks and meet the needs of the growing security hardware market. Since then, the product line has been expanded dramatically. Products include architectural grade, BHMA & UL code compliant life safety, mortise, cylindrical and tubular locksets, electronic "free standing" access control, biometric fingerprint locksets, ornamental iron locksets, deadbolts, locks for woven wire and patented HI-Security Cylinders.
