Epwin Window Systems has further enhanced the security credentials of its PatioMaster Sliding Door System with the introduction of a new and exclusive Yale 10-Point Locking System.
Designed in collaboration with Yale, a global leader in security solutions, the new Yale 10-Point Locking System redefines door security by delivering the equivalent of a standard lock plus additional shootbolts at the top and bottom of the sash. By incorporating this advanced 10-point locking mechanism in addition to the Yale 3* cylinder, the PatioMaster Sliding Door System has exceeded the stringent requirements of PAS24:2022 enhanced security accreditation, underscoring the company’s commitment to security excellence.
Commenting on the upgrade, Phil Parry, Technical Director at Epwin Window Systems, said: “The introduction of the new PAS24 Yale 10-Point Locking System further demonstrates our commitment to adopting and meeting the latest industry standards. The high security locking system ensures the operational forces are within the allowable limits and delivers a step-change in door hardware security for our customers”.
Every component of the PatioMaster System is impressive and has been intelligently designed to elevate its technical performance. A new sash profile increases glazing options and means the system offers outstanding thermal performance with U-values as low as 1.0 W/m2K with triple glazing. It also has class-leading weather performance and has achieved a market-leading wind loading of 1600Pa which means PatioMaster is the superior sliding door solution for coastal or high-rise properties.
Compared to mass market offerings, the PatioMaster doors are 33% stronger by design. And a new interlock prevents intruders from prising the panes open to gain entry. The door system delivers enhanced performance with superior aesthetics, while self-levelling rollers ensure an easy-glide operation, making it a pleasure to use.
PatioMaster’s impressive performance credentials make it well-suited for the diverse range of sliding doors applications, establishing the door as the superior solution for ground level, coastal and high-rise environments.
Phil concluded: “PatioMaster has always brought the reassurance of a tried and tested brand with an exceptional market pedigree. With the new Yale 10-Point High Security Locking System and PAS24:2022 accreditation, the high-security benefits build on an already powerful proposition.”
