Commercial Mortice Lock Case Finish
Changes in the Australian Standard AS4145.2-2008 (Locksets and hardware for doors and windows - Mechanical locksets for doors and windows in buildings) have seen an increase in required corrosion resistance ratings.
In order to improve the performance of the Commercial Mortice Locks in accordance with this standard the finishing of these locks has been changed from the traditional wet paint to a powdercoat finish.
Manufacture of the powder coat product will begin on 1st July 2010 with the 3570 series and will begin to be despatched over the following days. The 3580 series, Electro-Mechanical and 3540 series will follow soon after.
In addition, the introduction of this new powdercoat process will improve ASSA ABLOY’s environmental footprint in line with our policy to develop strategies to reduce our overall environmental impact.
