Zoo Hardware offers new range of London Fire Brigade locks

London Fire Brigade locks and key from Zoo Hardware

Door hardware specialist Zoo Hardware has introduced a new range of London Fire Brigade locks, for use on doors and cupboards where emergency access is required by use of the common London Fire Brigade key.

Now regularly used beyond a firefighting context, London Fire Brigade locks have become a more universal solution, serving as a convenient deadlock for homes and offices. The Zoo London Fire Brigade locks ensure security for shared keys used in a diverse range of environments, from service riser doors, meter cupboards and communal entrances in residential complexes to car park barriers, bin stores and entrances to public buildings.

UKCA, CE and CERTIFIRE approved, the Zoo Fire Brigade locks have been successfully tested in accordance with the requirements of BS EN1634-1. They are suitable for use on 30 and 60 minute fire-rated timber doors, using Flexifire graphite-based intumescents.

Solid brass security

The deadbolts are manufactured from solid brass for added strength and security, and lock keys can be operated from both sides to lock and unlock the deadbolt. The locks are available in both square and radius forends, with a backset of 51.5mm. Supplied in a polished stainless steel finish, additional finishes are coming soon, including polished brass, satin brass, black and bronze.

Commenting on the range, Jason Tonks RegAI, technical product, certification and compliance manager at Zoo Hardware, said: “The ambitious Zoo team has once again applied its technical expertise to the development of this new range, bringing a fully certified option to the market, with healthy stock levels to meet the growing demand for London Fire Brigade Locks.”

Zoo Hardware’s comprehensive portfolio of architectural door hardware spans levers, hinges, cylinders and door closers including its new electro-magnetic devices, all of which are available in a range of finishes to assist professionals in meeting the specific requirements of every project.
