Integrated lock & thermal barrier

Winkhaus have been able to marry a PVCu extrusion to our entire range of multi-point locks utilising purpose designed Winkhaus assembly machinery to permanently "clamp" the extrusion to the lock mechanism, creating a standalone, one piece locking system.

Speed up production whilst enhancing thermal performance!

Unlike separate aluminium lock carriers, which are an additional cost, the Edge™ range is fully integrated and can help speed up production significantly, with the added benefits of thermal performance and cosmetic appeal.

Edge™ is made from quality white PVCu material to BSEN12608 incorporating full UV stability and is supplied complete with protective tape.  The locks retain our standard steel faceplate which is plated to BSEN1670 Grade 4 for higher corrosion resistance.

The Edge™ will be of particular benefit to those manufacturers who do not have edge banding capability or who are considering moving away from traditional edge banding.  Anecdotal evidence suggests that door production cycle times could be reduced from typically 16 minutes to 10 minutes if the Edge™ system is used.




  • Steel and PVCu integrated locking system for improved thermal conductivity performance
  • Scratch free, non-paint PVCu surface for durability and reduced transit/site damage
  • Only 3mm return legs minimise ‘white sightline’ on coloured doors
  • Unique fir-tree location to allow for easy alignment and hands free screw fixing in production
  • Soft thermoplastic fins allow for easy insertion and removal of lock Edge TM if necessary
  • 10 fixing screw ports on Edge TM  locks helps prevent ‘snaking’ which may occur on aluminium faceplate locks if screws are over tightened
  • Radius edge to help eliminate ‘clashing’ with narrow doors or reduce airgaps
  • Optional eurogroove infill
  • Hinge Edge TM  PVCu extrusion supplied pre-punched for 3 hinge mounting
