Rocal, the Lincolnshire based manufacturer of solid core composite doors, celebrates its 21st birthday by adding the Yale Keyfree electronic door lock to its Endurance range.
Endurance door leaves are produced from a laminated and engineered solid timber core that ensures that the doors will not warp or twist even in extreme conditions.
Rocal manufactures the complete door set including the unique door leaf and frame. This 100% control over the manufacturing process allows the company to offer customers greater choice in terms of an extensive choice of colours and door designs.
When looking for the best electronic locking solution to allow users to access their doors without the use of a key, Rocal turned to VBH (GB) for advice. The hardware specialist recommended Keyfree, which can be operated either remotely via a key fob transmitter or by entering a 4 – 12 digit PIN code on the polished chrome or gold handle unit.
Rocal MD Stephen Nadin states ‘The introduction of Keyfree allows us to offer our customers even more choice when ordering their Endurance door. Keyless electronic access is gaining in popularity thanks to aspirational lifestyle programs and publications.
‘Traditionally, fitting this kind of product has been troublesome due to the requirement to connect to the mains electricity supply. Because Keyfree is a self-contained wireless unit, it’s easy for us to fit into our solid core doors and there’s absolutely no extra work for our customers, as there’s no requirement for mains wiring like there is with many systems.
‘The Endurance door portfolio and marketing package provides any retail fabricator or installer with the complete solution for increased door sales.’
