UNION Announces Launch of New HD72 Lockcase

UNION, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has announced the launch of its new HD72 modular euro-profile lockcases, delivering unrivalled performance while meeting essential security standards.

Designed for areas where high performance, strength and durability are paramount, the new HD72 lockcases cover an extensive range of specifications, including sashlock, deadlock, mortice latch, deadlocking nightlatch, bathroom lock and an emergency escape lock.

Tested to more than three and a half million cycles – twelve times greater than the industry standard – the range’s assured strength is supported by its superior durability, meeting the BS EN 12209 standard and offered with a 15-year guarantee.

The HD72 also features heavy duty springing and a one degree follower. This allows the HD72 lockcase to support handles weighing up to 930g, giving specifiers the freedom to be more design-led in projects, while helping to banish drooping levers. This is a common issue raised by property owners soon after the installation of lockcases provided by other manufacturers.

Its stylish design is enhanced via a two-piece square or radius forend, plus a splinter guard for a professional finish. Cast steel latches and deadbolts are also supplied with a durable chrome plated finish as standard throughout the range, with a further five optional finishes available in stainless steel, chrome and brass.

Karen Hubbard, Product Manager for Mortice Locks at UNION, explains: “Our brand is synonymous with quality, reliability and expertise, and the new HD72 modular lockcases range are no exception. Ideal for both first-fit or easily retro-fitted to all doors, helping to save time and money, we are so confident in the HD72’s capabilities that we’re offering the range with a 15-year guarantee.

“Offering a long service life and proven reliability, our HD72 modular euro-profile lockcases are truly a ‘fit-and-forget’ solution.”
