UNION Strongbolt™ helps protect wildlife at conservation project /Local/UK/References/UNION%20wildlife%20project.jpg UNION, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a division of the ASSA ABLOY Group, has supported the Wildlife Conservation Group, giving them a helping hand to conserve wildlife. The Wildlife Conservation Group, run by unpaid volunteers aims to keep local wildlife safe by protecting and conserving wildlife and the natural habitat for the public benefit. Thanks to a change in circumstance, the group has been able to amalgamate its previously fragmented set-up, by creating a centralised operations base to help with conservation project planning, education, training and as a general operations site. Help from UNION, who donated its StrongBOLT™ mortice sash locks, took the project one step further towards completion. Providing the wildlife centre with a hardware product that not only meets the relevant British Standards but also provides increased protection against most forms of lock attack. David Wigglesworth, Managing Director of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: ”We pride ourselves on our community involvement and recognise that the work carried out by Wildlife Conservation Groups is vital in conserving wildlife and the environment in the region. We wish the group all the best in their future endeavours.” “They have specified an excellent product that meets very stringent testing standards, further testament to the group’s ethos of responsibility and the quality of this development.” Paul Hayward, Group Secretary commented: “It is vital that companies such as UNION, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, come forward to offer their invaluable support for projects like this, which do not receive any formal funding. In particular the StrongBOLT™ mortice sash locks will help to put the project on the road to completion, creating a more sustainable conservation project for the future”. The UNION StrongBOLT™ features radius inner forends for ease of first fit installation or simple retro fit replacement. Available in sash lock and deadlock variants, the product is tested to BS3621:2007 and BS EN 1634-1, assessed for use on 60 minute timber fire doors. The sash lock version is non-handed with an easily reversible latch bolt. The latch head featured a radius design for smooth operation.
