UNION introduces a brand new range of uniquely designed night latches, combining ergonomic form, texture and colour to facilitate easy access. The products have an extended length operating lever and chunky sliding snib for easier location and operation. Contact points feature red tactile rubber surfaces, which provide a comfortable, non-slip grip, whilst the contrasting colour assists the visually impaired. The products are also supplied with a unique oversized, easy grip key bow cover, to aid access from the outside of the property.
The new Easy Access night latch range consists of both 50mm and 60mm backset cylinder night latches and a 60mm roller bolt deadlock. They are available complete with either a UNION cylinder or case only.
When used on entrance doors to dwellings above ground level, the roller bolt variant will prevent accidental lock-out and meet the recommendations of BS5588.
The unique features have been specifically developed to assist in fulfilling duties required under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and satisfy the recommendations of BS8300 and Approved Document M (ADM).
