ABUS UK offer new total door security
For many years ABUS Door Bars have made a successful contribution to ABUS' security portfolio in Germany. While these products offer spectacular additional door security, their very specific fitting requirements have meant their sale in the UK would be mostly limited to distributors able to offer a professional fitting service.
Now ABUS UK has many committed locksmiths across the country, their professional expertise would be very easily adapted to fitting these products that will give consumers greatly enhanced property and personal security.
While each Door Bar comes with simple to follow English fitting instructions, many consumers may feel embarking on this 'DIY' task, putting significant raw bolts into door surrounds, is a step beyond their comfort zone. But with professional help, they may appreciate how their home comfort zone or commercial premises will be radically improved and secured by having a door bar installed.
So now ABUS UK offer those distributors able to offer their customers a simple fitting service a double potential sale: Supply and fit an ABUS Door Bar.
The Door Bar Range on offer from ABUS UK is a simple 1, 2 3 option:
* PR1400 internal hand operated door bar: RRP £113.04
* PR1500 internal key operated door bar: RRP £152.73
* PR2600 internal & external key operated door bar: RRP £160.29
Additional fitting kits are available to adapt to differing door openings or structure if needed. Most important is the 2 keyed versions are supplied with a high security dimple-key Euro Cylinder, which can be exchanged and re-fitted to suit any ABUS or existing door cylinder system, so the owner's key management can be kept simple and secure, and professional fitters have a further service to offer.
The market for Door Bars is both commercial, where there is any building or room that keeps within in it significant cash, jewellery or other target valuables. Equally the domestic market has many vulnerable home owners, often in retirement apartments, who need to know their front door cannot be forced open.
Distributors will recognise this is not a purchase or sale where usual none service high volume discounts apply, but equally will want to exploit the sale and service value of this new ABUS Door Bar opportunity.
