Avocet Hardware was a company on the brink of bankruptcy when it was acquired in 2012 by the Jain family, and subsequently saw an inflow of investments that have fortified its position as an authority in the home security industry. The company’s mainstay has been the ABS high-security lock which features a patented snap-secure technology. As opposed to euro cylinder locks, which can be tampered with and neutralised in 13 seconds, the ABS Snap-Secure mechanism locks the central cam into place, blocking access to the door bolt. This unmatched combination is a TS007 3-star rated Kitemark award winner, and is in line with Sold Secure’s SS312 Diamond Standard.
Avocet Hardware is involved in continuous product research and development and maintains a dedicated testing facility. It manufactures its products in privately-owned factories in China, and it designs and tests in products in the UK under current ISO 9001 standards. Avocet Hardware was recently awarded the NFA’s Hardware Company for 2013 award. As the main suppliers of Avocet security systems in the UK, easylocks offer a wide selection of Avocet Hardware products, including window espags, window espag handles, Tilt & Turn handles, multipoint locks, window handle keys, door handles and hinges, to name only a few.
