Keeping a handle on the business

Hardware manufacturer VBH has unveiled the Alpha 2-Star security door handle set as the latest addition to the greenteQ range. When used in conjunction with a 1 star rated profile cylinder the handle enables manufacturers and installers to provide a 3 star rated solution to BSI Kitemark TS007.

The backplate covers a solid stainless steel core that, in conjunction with steel fixings, provides protection against attack and removal, whilst the profile cylinder hole features a flange that prevents the cylinder from being removed from outside with the handle set in place.

Standard 215mm fixing centres mean that upgrading handles on existing installations is simple, with only minimal additional routing required around the cylinder. No further cylinder protection is required.

Gary Gleeson, VBH Marketing Manager said: ‘We’re delighted to add Alpha 2-Star to our product portfolio as it is the perfect partner for our Q-Star TS007 profile cylinder that has proved so popular since we launched it last year. Customers have been eagerly awaiting its arrival so they can fit an all-greenteQ TS007 solution.”
