UNION relaunches 3 and 5 lever lock ranges

UNION Architectural Hardware, part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, the global leader in door opening solutions, has re-launched its 3 and 5 lever lock ranges, the first lockcase ‘families’ to be reinvigorated.

The 3 lever range, now called GuardBOLT™, and the 5 lever ClassicBOLT™ will show strong new UNION endorsed branding, and present a consistent look and feel throughout the range.

Representing a significant aesthetic improvement, the re-launch is part of a branding overhaul that began with the launch of new packaging earlier this year.

The 3 lever lock series is one of the most popular UNION ranges encompassing a variety of lock functions including sash locks and deadlocks.  The range boasts over 100 models from the most in demand through to the more diverse and bespoke lockcases, making consistency all-important.

The 5 lever lock range comprises a mortice sash and mortice deadlock for use primarily on timber doors with a thickness of up to 54mm.  Both products are non-handed and are available in either a stainless steel or brass finish.

Karen Hubbard, Product Manager for UNION, commented:

“We surveyed our customers to get a feel for the areas that they wanted to see a change and as a result we are re-launching UNION mortice lockcases, starting with the 3 and 5 lever ranges.

“We are taking the opportunity to name the 3 lever series GuardBOLT™ and the 5 lever series ClassicBOLT™, creating two new lockcase ‘families’ with strong brand continuity to further reinforce the quality that UNION products offer.”
