Sarah Knight, Product Manager for ERA, said: “As one of the UK’s leading home security and fenestration component providers, we have a responsibility to ensure we consistently support our fabricator partners in achieving complete compliance with the latest standards.


“However, that shouldn’t be achieved at the expense of visual appeal, which is why we have created a range of certified high-security hardware that is available in a range of unique Hardex finishes that offer unrivalled durability and longevity

Going above and beyond neutral salt spray testing, ERA’s prohesion testing process includes an electrolyte spray sequence with drying cycles at high temperatures to concentrate salt deposits, achieving real world accelerated testing. As a result, the Fab&Fix unique Hardex finish is supplied with a 10 year function, finish and security guarantee after undergoing 1000 hours of prohesion testing.


Also central to the portfolio of certified solutions is ERA’s new High Security 3* Euro Profile Cylinder, which is supplied with a £2,000 anti-snap guarantee, as well as the 3* BS Kitemarked Invincible Cylinder, which offers five times the strength of a conventional cylinder. Independently tested and certified in accordance with TS007:2014+A2: 2018 and EN 1303:2015, the cylinder has been proven to provide the highest possible levels of protection.
