ERA - setting the standard for nightlatch security for 15 years

Leading home security provider & Secured by Design member company, ERA, is celebrating the 15 year anniversary of its British Standard high security nightlatch, having sold over 500,000 units since its launch in 2006.

The significant milestone demonstrates ERA’s longstanding commitment to providing security professionals with high quality, reliable products that deliver first class performance, safety and durability.

Available with a 40mm and 60mm backset, the high security nightlatch is suitable for replacing most existing door locks, with the classic and robust design delivering unrivalled protection.

For additional security and peace of mind, the ergonomic internal locking handle can be deadlocked with an anti-clockwise turn of the key from the inside, whilst the high security integral cylinder pull protects the cylinder from being drilled.

Suitable for inward opening interior and exterior timber doors, the British Standard high security nightlatch is available in a range of finishes, including brass, satin chrome, polished chrome, satin nickel and black, with matching brass effect and satin cylinders.

The nightlatch is supplied with a 10 year function, finish and security guarantee, and conforms to British Standard 3621:2007.
