Trojan’s new TS008 Unicorn letter plate is a great catch for fabricators struggling to meet the very latest requirements of PAS24:2016 and Approved Document Q of Building Regulations.
Anyone who has scoured the market recently for a PAS24 compliant letter plate will have turned up meagre findings despite increasing demand for high security hardware. And unless you’re prepared to spend extra time fitting a separate internal restrictor cowl on a standard letter plate (not to every customer’s taste) or a self-contained external postbox (not always practical), you’re going to struggle to meet the latest requirements of PAS24:2016 and Approved Document Q of Building Regulations. Thankfully, the clever, clued-in engineers at Trojan have responded to this gap in the market with the launch of their TS008 approved Unicorn letter plate which fits most domestic front doors, achieves top-level security in a complete, out-of-the-box solution and is now available to buy from Window Ware!
“The TS008 Unicorn letter plate is the perfect addition to our range”, enthused Window Ware’s technical specialist Robert Vaughan. “Innovative products like this ensure we are always answering our customers’ calls for high-spec hardware that complies with the requirements of the PAS24: 2016 standard or Document Q of Building Regulations.”
A letter plate, in its most basic form, is a hole in the door which lets post through! As such it offers burglars a tempting access point and therefore poses an inherent security risk for any residence. The TS008 Unicorn letter plate’s unique patented design aims to reduce the likelihood of thieves using the letter plate to gain unlawful access to the home or to steal personal belongings near the entrance. The inner protective housing has a unique concealed hinge mechanism to prevent attack. To guard against ‘fishing’, the inner flap has a positive stop feature which lets mail through freely but won’t open wide enough to feed light-fingered hands, rods or hooks through the letter plate. And though the internal flap stands proud of the door somewhat, it only projects out as far as the average door handle, so it won’t encroach on hall space unduly. Concealed external fixings also make it difficult to remove the letter plate by force.
The TS008 Unicorn letter plate is suitable for both composite doors and PVC-U doors. Window Ware stocks a choice of three external finishes: chrome, PVD gold and white, all with white internal finish as standard. The external flap is manufactured from weather-resistant 304 Stainless Steel with a 25-year anticorrosion guarantee (galvanised mild steel is used for painted finishes). There’s also a 10-year mechanical guarantee on all versions.
