Locking Options:

The grill incorporates 62mm x 33mm aluminium rectangular locking posts that are placed at regular intervals along the length of the curtain.

Posts fitted with floor bolts include a spring capped floor socket.

Lead and trailing end posts are fitted with cylinder controlled lock stiles with self-adjusting cold rolled steel floor and top track bolts.

Intermediate locking posts are generally fitted for every 3048mm of curtain.

Bi-parting curtain assemblies are supplied with a hook-bolt deadlock activated by keyed or thumb-turn cylinders. The associated slam-post is fitted with a steel floor bolt and includes a full height channel to accept the hook-bolt deadlock.
