HOMEOWNER TURNS TO LOCK LOCK REASSURANCE

Homeowner Turns To Lock Lock Reassurance
When homeowner Tim Morgan realised that multiple houses on his estate were being primed by unwanted intruders, he turned to Lock Lock in order to secure his home and more importantly, his young family.

There is little to add to his captivating comment on Facebook that was posted on February 24th, 2018: ‘What an amazing product. Decided to install these after multiple houses on our estate were being tried for entrance. Last night a neighbour had to chase a burglar out of his house too. Delivery was very fast (next day) and they were easy to install (about 10mins each) and only needed a screw driver. Feel extremely safe now they are in place. Can sleep at night again without worry. Thanks Lock Lock.’

Lock Lock is the only door security handle with Sold Secure certification, which is backed by the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) and it also carries a TS007:2012 2 Star accreditation.

An increasing number of door manufacturers are looking towards Lock Lock, not only for its unrivalled security credentials, but also for the fact that it has now reached 6,000 hours in a salt spray chamber against the industry 240/480 standard. Leading Locksmith’s are also carrying Lock Lock as the ultimate security upgrade as other social media posts have shown.

Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure commented: ‘There’s nothing better than a homeowner testimonial to bring to life exactly what Lock Lock can do in terms of securing homes. Tim and his family can now be reassured that they are secure at night and day thanks to Lock Lock and they have joined thousands of other security conscious homeowners with the ultimate door security handle.’

BRISANT AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING AT THE OSPAS

Brisant Award For Outstanding at the OSPAs
Brisant Secure have become the first company in the glazing and fenestration industries to receive an award at the internationally recognised Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs).

In the hotly contested Outstanding Security Equipment Manufacturer category, Brisant was chosen out of a list of 10 companies in total, having put together a strong award entry featuring the pioneering Ultion and revolutionary Lock Lock products.

The OSPAs are sponsored by Secured by Design.  Jon Cole, Chief Operating Officer of Secured by Design was duly impressed with the announcement and commented: ‘We’d like to congratulate Brisant Secure on this outstanding award, as they have quickly positioned themselves as a high-end product design company, with security right at the very core of what they do.’

Steve Stewart, CEO of Brisant Secure was equally as enthusiastic with the award and added: ‘We’re a proud Secured by Design member and so awards such as the OSPA’s are not only driven by us from a product security, design and innovation perspective, but also by the very values of their initiative to design out crime. With Lock Lock and Ultion we’re challenging convention with outstanding product features, desirability, real life security and unrivalled longevity.’

LOCK LOCK SHOWREEL – DON’T MEET YOUR BURGLAR

Lock Lock Showreel - Don't Meet Your Burglar

The latest compelling video from Lock Lock, shows that in less than 10 seconds an intruder can gain entry into a home with only a 1 Star cylinder, while Lock Lock survives a sustained effort several minutes even with the cylinder removed.

The latest video at www.lock-lock.co.uk/protection has been designed to communicate the benefits of Lock Lock’s registered seamless and edgeless design, which doesn’t provide any potential intruder with a surface area in which to grab with a mole wrench in order to break the handle. Lock Lock is also the industry’s only TS007:2012 2 Star security handle with Sold Secure certification.

With over 100,000 homeowners coming face to face with their intruder every year, the issue of both handle and cylinder security has never been so important. Given the relatively high ticket price of an alarm system and the associated monitoring costs, the upgrade to Lock Lock and also the 3 Star Ultion cylinder has never looked so good.

Leading locksmiths already stock Lock Lock as the ultimate deterrent, while an increasing number of door manufacturers are looking to Lock Lock as a proven and tested security upgrade. With industry debate already fuelled about the 240/480 hour salt spray standard there’s also the reassurance of a product that’s now heading for 6,000 in the salt spray chamber.

Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure commented: ‘The latest video isn’t there to scaremonger, but to highlight the importance of door handle security. As much as the industry has adopted Ultion in their droves, we’re starting to experience the same upward curve with Lock Lock and for good reason, it’s unmatched in terms of door security, yet encapsulated within a beautiful design.’

ONLY LOCK LOCK CARRIES THE SOLD SECURE STANDARD

Only Lock Lock Carries The Sold Secure Standard

Not only is Lock Lock taking the composite and entrance door market by storm, thanks to unrivalled product design, performance and longevity, but it is now the only security door handle with the coveted Sold Secure certification, that’s issued by the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA).

Sold Secure is the premier testing and certification house for security products, operated by the MLA and so the independent testing undergone on Lock Lock has been considerable. Now listed on www.soldsecure.com as the only entrance door handle to achieve this important certification, door manufacturers, installers and homeowners can be re-assured that the product has been tested to the highest standards, along with the unrivalled 200,000 cycle and 5,000+ hours salt spray testing credentials.

Lock Lock is also a TS007:2012 2 Star security handle and can be used with the impressive 3 Star Ultion cylinder with its £1,000 security guarantee and so combined, this makes for the most secure handle/cylinder combination in the door security market at present. With security still the number one driver in entrance door sales, this is an unrivalled product proposition for the trade and consumers.

Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure commented: ‘Like Ultion, Lock Lock is being adopted by many of the most prominent brands in the composite and residential door sectors in the UK and this also includes the PVCu and aluminium segments. As the only security handle with Sold Secure certification, it’s also testament that we’ve designed something that is not only beautiful thanks to its registered seamless and edgeless design but is unrivalled from a security perspective.’

£5,000 FOR 5,000 HOURS TO GM FUNDRAISING

5,000 For 5,000 Hours To GM Fundrasing-web

Brisant Secure have donated £5,000 to GM Fundraising, to celebrate the revolutionary Lock Lock door security handle surpassing an unprecedented 5,000 hour salt spray test.

GM Fundraising has been the industry’s charity of choice over the years, raising over £1.8million in the process, with the aim of achieving £2 million within the next 2 years. Several epic cycling adventures and a recent ladies only ‘Paddle2 Pedal’ event, continue to capture the imagination of all those involved, including many long-term supporters.

This donation is a fitting way to mark the fact that Lock Lock, with a bathroom furniture grade coating, has surpassed a never heard of level of durability at 5,000+ hours. Typical testing standards require 240/480 hours, which equates to an improvement of over 1,000% against other tested handles.

Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure commented: ‘We’re redefining expectations for hardware. Our aim is to develop an unrivalled product range in terms of longevity and performance, and with a new suited hardware range tooled up for production in the coming months, we’ll again be challenging convention in the sector. We felt this was a fulfilling way to mark this milestone.’

Gary Morton, founder of GM Fundraising concluded: ‘It’s a hugely magnanimous donation and I’d like to thank Nick, Steve and all the team at Brisant Secure for this kind gesture. It still amazes me just how the industry has adopted GM Fundraising in terms of the events we do and more importantly for the money raised for Hope House Children’s Hospices. We also have news to come in the coming weeks about our 2018 and 2019 plans.’

HOLDING YOUR PRICES!

Nick Dutton becomes Joint CEO of Brisant Secure

The cost of our products have been affected by significant raw material increases. But we’re committed to maintaining the highest quality and specification products as competitively as possible. So, against a backdrop of price increases in the hardware sector, we’re not increasing prices at this time.

We’re absorbing some of these raw material increases by balancing the more recent currency exchange rate improvements.  It is hoped that continued exchange rate increases in 2018 will offset the balance of our cost hikes.

2018 will be a great year for Brisant Secure customers with exciting product innovations and marketing support initiatives being launched. We’re pleased to be able to fully support our customers with these developments, whilst not carrying the burden of immediate cost increases.

NEXT DAY KEYED ALIKE SERVICE, LAUNCHED BY BRISANT

24 Hour Keyed Alike Service, Launched by Brisant
Security hardware design leaders, Brisant Secure, are now looking to revolutionise the way in which customers receive their deliveries, with the introduction of a new next day keyed alike service for their range of cylinders. This includes the pioneering Ultion product which is specified by some of the most influential companies in the door and locksmith sectors.

This next day service applies not only to the 1000+ variants of cylinder stocked by Brisant, but also the in-house workshop builds mixed sized doubles, with or without thumbturns, to the same lead time.  As consumers, we’re all well versed in next day delivery options from retailers like Amazon, so this new service is perfect for door manufacturers looking to deliver quality products, to a short lead time.

Nick Dutton CEO of Brisant Secure commented: ‘Quality and security don’t have to be to the cost of service, as we are proving with a next-day keyed alike service. Our ability to help customers meet the shortest of deadlines with this incredible service is a major part of our unrivalled offering.’

Qualitere installs Lock Lock as standard

Martin and Alex sm

Qualitere Windows is the latest installation company to fit Lock Lock security handles as standard. After on-site testing and both employee and customer surveys, Joint Owner Martin Harris announced the move, fitting all 20 showroom doors with Brisant Secure’s Lock Lock.

“Lock Lock’s performance and security are first-class but it’s also the clear market leader in anti-corrosion,” says Martin. “Pitting and tarnishing is an issue in the hardware industry, but we’ve never bought cheap products as we have a reputation to protect. We did have issues with three handles recently though (despite being 64 miles from the coast!) and that was three too many. This just can’t happen: customers come to us for top-of-the-range quality so we needed a secure handle that would stay looking good. After trialling and feedback from customers on the functionality and looks, I was so impressed I made Lock Lock the standard option rather than an upgrade.”

Qualitere Windows is a family-run business in the East Midlands. “We’d been looking to improve our premium security handle offer for a while,” continues Martin. “We got a fantastic reception when we started fitting Brisant’s Ultion cylinders as standard over a year ago, and I knew Lock Lock could be another game changer for us. Handle and cylinder lock manufacturers approach me regularly with cheaper alternatives. But I’m not interested in cheap, and neither are my customers. I need to be 100% sure on quality and security, and with Lock Lock, I am.”

Brisant wins Best Digital Campaign and Best Use of Direct Marketing at CMAs

CMA-2017-Winner-Best-Digital-Campaign

Brisant Secure was delighted to win the ‘Best Use of Direct Marketing’ and ‘Best Digital Campaign’ awards with MRA Marketing at the recent Construction Marketing Awards (CMA). The wins were for innovative marketing campaigns for Brisant’s flagship lock product, Ultion. The judges were impressed by the “highly sophisticated demand generation activity, focused on a clearly identified target market”.

Ultion is the most secure cylinder lock on the market, uniquely providing homes with real security against real-life attacks. It’s got Sold Secure Diamond, Secured by Design, and is BSI kite marked TS007 3 star – and homeowners are further protected by an exceptional £1,000 break-in guarantee. It’s even been captured on video defeating a real burglary attempt.

An integrated, extensive marketing campaign drives traffic to the ultion-lock.co.uk website and turns those visitors into very high quality leads for Brisant’s trusted trade network through the ‘Find A Door That Locks’ tool.

The tool has been used more than 13,000 times by homeowners to locate fabricators, installers, and locksmiths based on a postcode search. Homeowners enter their email and postcode, and relevant contacts in their area are selected from the network of registered Ultion trade customers. This information is sent to Dotmailer, which then emails the homeowner and prompts them at various different decision points.

CEO Nick Dutton says: “The campaign is essentially a straightforward idea for growing sales for our customers, but it took a lot of hard work (and some very complicated logic maps!) to make it happen. I’m delighted the team has earned this recognition from such a highly-respected award programme.”

The award was presented at a black-tie Gala Dinner at the Radisson Blu Portman Square in London on 30th November. For more information on Ultion visit www.ultion-lock.co.uk
