Leading timber fabricator Glyngary has partnered with VBH to develop a PAS24 certified door solution. Glyngary, a family-owned window and door fabricator since 1985, saw an opportunity to develop a door specification and security hardware package that helps them stand out from competitors. The partnership also includes Yale and Accoya.
Glyngary wanted a long-lasting product using hardware which could match the performance of Accoya, the world’s leading long-life sustainable wood, guaranteed against rot for 50 years. VBH’s stainless steel greenteQ Coastline range is corrosion resistant, has a long-projected lifespan, a proven security record and a 25-year guarantee, so it was the obvious choice. It was used with the stainless-steel Yale Mantis 3 multipoint door lock which is also corrosion resistant. The range is made from Grade 304 stainless-steel, so it’s exceptionally resistant to corrosion even in the harshest conditions. This is particularly relevant when using Accoya as, in common with most durable timber, there is a small amount of acid present in the wood which will attack base metal fittings. Coastline’s 25-year guarantee is the first of its kind and the range is also covered by the company’s comprehensive Q-secure security performance guarantee, which makes it ideal for compliance with PAS24.
Gary Yates, Director of Glyngary, comments: “The support we’re getting from VBH, Yale & Accoya throughout the testing process is very valuable to us, as it will result in compliant products. The service we’ve had from VBH has been very good too. They have a wide range of products – and the support from Tyler Shutts and Adrian Gale in particular is second to none!”
