Defender Standard and Virage Locking Cockspur handle

The University of Nottingham, where a new hall of residence was constructed and fitted with hardware by Securistyle.
The purpose built Halls of Residence has 422 rooms for first year students. Each room has at least one large top hung window that has been fitted with the Defender hinge and the Virage locking cockspur handle. Ease of use and durability were the key factors in the specification. All the hardware is made from austenitic stainless steel, making it ideal for applications where atmospheric corrosion is likely to be a consideration.
Safety and security are essential to an environment that allows quality teaching and learning. Where safety and security are compromised then such disruption can threaten the physical and mental well being of pupils and staff as well as cause unnecessary damage to the fabric of the property. Potential damage can be reduced significantly if advice is sought early.
