"Providing the highest level of security product as efficiently, quickly and cost effectively as possible"

Door hardware and locks supplier, Aldridge Security, have renewed their membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative, adding a new product to their existing Police Preferred range.

Aldridge Security is a private family-owned and run security wholesaler and the largest in the UK and Ireland, with over 75 years’ experience in the industry. They credit this achievement to their loyalty to independent customers and refusal to supply DIY superstores.

The extensive range of products available through Aldridge is ideally suited to retail and mobile locksmiths, architectural ironmongers, builders’ merchants, DIY shops, access control installers, safe engineers and the UPVC repair market, to name but a few.

In addition to being the largest distributor of Allegion, Union and Kaba products in the UK and Ireland, they are also amongst the leading distributors in the world of Silca and fellow SBD members Evva, as well as the exclusive distributor of Asec Security Products worldwide.

Aldridge Security recognises that their successes have only been possible through the support of their customers, and for this reason they proudly remain fully committed to providing the highest levels of quality service as standard.

Joining the Asec Kite 1 Star and Asec Kite Elite 3 Star Euro-Cylinders as Police Preferred Products is the newly accredited Asec Nightlatch.

This high-security, automatically deadlocking BS nightlatch from Asec Kite is ideal for use with solid and glass panelled wooden doors to provide additional security against forced entry. The locking bolt of the nightlatch deadlocks automatically upon closing, making the use of a credit card to force entry virtually impossible. The bolt can also be held in the withdrawn position with the use of the snib feature for convenience when required. This rim fixing nightlatch conforms to British Standard 3621:2004 (BS EN 12209) as well as featuring an integral cylinder pull which helps to protect the cylinder from being drilled.

They have been with SBD since 2015 and it’s great that they see the benefit of being a member. They are a well-established and respected business for trade and supply locks, hardware, and access control products from many leading companies. I look forward to continuing working with them.”
