AUTOMATIC multi-point locking system - locks automatically as soon as the door is closed
With over 160 years experience in producing locking systems for the world market Winkhaus is a market leader producing innovative security solutions to meet the challenges of tomorrows rapidly changing security and ease of use requirements.
Superbly engineered and manufactured in Germany the AV2+ Locking system is approved by the Police ‘Secured by Design ’security initiative. This important independent endorsement is an essential requirement of the Association of British insurers.
No longer is it necessary to lift the handle lever to engage the hook locking mechanism. This has often been difficult for the elderly and the infirm and puts their security at risk. There is a clear indication from the Police that it is not uncommon for doors to be closed just on the latch because of difficulties lifting handles - a fact well known to potential burglars!
Using an Automatic AV2+ mechanical lock, which operates as a slam lock as soon as the door is closed, also reduces the risk of a ‘follow-on’ attack or ‘tailgating‘ as it is sometimes known. Closing the door behind you as soon as you enter a dwelling gives immediate full security and reduces the risk of anyone trying to enter immediately behind you.
