Lock durability testing facility opened

Adams Rite Europe : 07 September, 2007  (Company News)
Test facility enables rigorous evaluation of lock assemblies against European standards during product development and prototyping
Adams Rite has opened what is believed to be one of the first facilities in the UK able to test products to the highest grades of European lock durability and safety performance standards BS EN 1125 and BS EN 179.
Simon Guy, Technical Manager at Adams Rite explains: 'The Test Room is an important part of Adams Rite's extensive and ongoing European product development program. We use this state-of-the-art facility to rigorously evaluate locking products specifically designed for commercial shopfront and thermally broken aluminium door systems.'

The facility consists of a double door assembly, which is capable of testing prototypes for durability, and locking equipment up to and in excess of BS EN 1125 and BS EN179.

Door nose sections have been designed so that they can be fitted with a wide range of door profiles, which enables Adams Rite to evaluate the compatibility of their designs with a variety of customer door profiles. This means that Adams Rite can develop its designs in conjunction with the customer's design team, in order to achieve a solution that is mutually beneficial to the supplier and the customer.

The facility is also able to test prototypes to BS EN12209 in excess of the highest grades for strength, durability, drilling and torque.
