Pickersgill-Kaye has formed a strategic partnership with fellow ASSA ABLOY Group company in the Middle East, Prometal, a leading global manufacturer of steel and wooden security doors, which has already reaped dividends with a deal for its high security doors with multipoint locking systems (MPL).
We are initially supplying the Dubai-based company with anti-blast multipoint locks and hinges for security doors predominately being delivered to petrochemical plants in the Middle East.
The flexibility and renowned high security footprint of our MPL helps address the large-scale security challenges facing critical infrastructure sites such as fuel installations, especially in regions hit by conflicts, while maintaining safe and easy exit when needed without compromising health and safety issues.
These high-performance locks were adapted to meet the specifications of Prometal, which supplies secure door sets for industries ranging from oil & gas to detention, commercial, education, residential and healthcare, with a customer base including the Gulf region, Egypt, Afghanistan, Africa and STAN countries.
Pickersgill-Kaye’s Product Sales Manager – High Security Locking, Phil Prigg, said: “Our ongoing export drive has been given a major boost by the partnership with Prometal. Our high security locks cover almost every base for Prometal and any modification we make doesn’t really show, unlike our competitors who have to change quite a few of the components.”
High security systems from Pickersgill-Kaye are surface and mortice modular multi and single point locks, manufactured in the UK to the highest technical standards and aesthetically designed to complement the modern workplace.
The firm’s high security locks are already in use protecting critical infrastructure and high value assets across the UK and Ireland. There is also strong interest in Pickersgill-Kaye’s range of High Security Slide Bar, Claw and Pedestrian Gate Locks for perimeter security applications.
High security single and multipoint locks incorporate a number of key features including stainless steel lock cases, aesthetically pleasing colour matched lock and rod covers, cylinder guard protection and hardened steel bolts with anti-thrust prevention. They have also been independently cycle tested to in excess of one million operations.
All Pickersgill-Kaye products are designed on state-of-the-art CAD CAM software and are manufactured in the UK using high-tech materials and production techniques. Its locks undergo extensive and challenging third party testing covering some of the most demanding durability and resistance to attack in order to satisfy the operational requirements of both national and international high security market sectors.
A trading division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, Pickersgill-Kaye’s product range is supported by experienced technical and customer care departments, which can now provide a worldwide service.
Prometal’s high performance, security door sets, coupled with Pickersgill-Kaye’s locks, offer customers across the globe a complete security access solution for the protection of high profile facilities at risk of attack.
