Brio 286DL Locking Handle
Allegion UK has has added the 286DL locking handle to its range of Brio dual point locks for exterior folding applications.
Described as "ideal for both residential and commercial facilities", the product is designed to 'suite' with Brio 288 lever furniture and is engineered to secure timber and aluminium folding panels.
A single action handle is used to provide a stylish alternative to two flush bolts, with the lock's design allowing doors to fold flat whilst remaining discretely hidden inside aluminium stiles or edges of timber panels.
Keepers allow for neat dressing and accurate alignment of the throw and panel, which improves the performance of perimeter weather seals.
David Newton, Brio UK general manager, says:
"We routinely research and review the marketplace for folding and sliding door hardware systems, to see where Brio can add value for customers.
"The 286 dual point lock was developed as an alternative to using flush bolts on panels. The lock is less intrusive than flush bolts and also has the very considerable advantage of eliminating any bending down or reaching up to lock or unlock the door which is the downside of flush bolts. This makes it very friendly with regards to disabled access as wheelchair users will not have to rely on help to open doors."
