Clarke Instruments Ltd win a large order for custom designed electric releases

We have secured a repeat order for custom designed electric releases for a long standing customer.

The brief from the client was to develop a stronger more reliable product, to match their night mortice dead locks.

We based the design around our 903 release which has proven itself in the field for over 35 years with some devices still in operation. When tested against the client’s old product we also found we had at least three times the holding strength. This more than matched the client’s expectations.

This again demonstrates our ability to produce a bespoke solution that meets all of the security requirements of the client, while keeping within their budgetary constraints.

If you take security seriously, you will be delighted with our products.

Export order won

Clarke instruments has just completed an export order for its world renowned custodial releases.

Working closely with our client the 9842 releases were used in the door sets for a major middle eastern development. This is a 12Vdc fail lock device with sensing

The brief from the end user was simple. They wanted:

The strongest

Most Reliable

Long lived

Proven product available.

The 984 range of releases can withstand up to 1900Kn of force and has a well-established track record, having been in service for over 30 years, with some of the original locks still in operation.

For full details of this device please follow the link to the 984 product page.

All our releases are built to the same exacting standards and offer great value for money considering the strength and reliability they give.

Being a lean UK manufacturing company we are equally happy to supply standard products or work with you to develop a product to meet your exact requirements

Executive security company turns to Clarke Instruments again

After several years, our customer turned to us for another set of customised electric releases requiring a quality brass finish in all respects for one of their prestigious customers. Every door tells a different story as the brass lead in plates are all made to measure and are therefore of different lengths.

Our 960 range of electric releases is the base design for the customised product. With brass face plates and latch blocks instead of steel, the end result has a quality brass finish, which is aesthetically pleasing: ideal for historic buildings.

The 960, which withstands 7Kn of force, meets our the clients criteria for robustness, reliability and longevity.

Being an agile manufacturing company our technical department was able to work closely with the client based in Oxford to make certain each individual release was designed and matched to the required drawings of the individual doors.

This was then passed to our factory where our highly trained manufacturing division worked out the easiest and most efficient way to complete the order to meet the customer’s specification: Both on time and within budget.

So, if you take security seriously and have a bespoke or standard requirement, we would like to hear from you.

Large Electric Strike order

We have secured another repeat order for 400 electric releases from a long standing customer.

The original brief from the client was to develop a stronger, more reliable product than the one they had been using for their night mortice dead locks.

After meeting with the client, we based the new design around our 903 release which has proven itself in the field for over 35 years. The new product was tested against the client’s old product and was found to have at least three times the holding strength which more than matched the client’s expectations.

This again demonstrates our ability to produce a bespoke solution that meets all of the security requirements of the client, while keeping within their budgetary constraints.

If you take security seriously, you will be delighted with our products.

Customers are taking security seriously

Over the past 6 months we have noticed a steady increase in enquiries and orders for electric locking requirements and solutions.  The impression we get from discussions with our customers is that they appear to have a greater awareness of the differences in quality between our products and others that are available in the market place.

Our range of electric releases, solenoid bolts and gate locks are very highly regarded within the industry and have  a  reputation for design, robustness and longevity. For the quality of product on offer, our prices are extremely competitive with entry level products like the 913 for mortice night latches starting at just £135.

Our products are compatible  with most leading suppliers of locks for dead bolts, night latches and rim locks, all of which can withstand strengths from around 500Kg up to 2,000Kg.

We also offer a comprehensive compatibility chart on our website together with sizing detail forms (your lock and your door) that can be completed and emailed back to us if more information is required.

Most of our products are available from stock or can be manufactured with very short lead times. They can be purchased directly from us – payment can be made by bank transfer or most debit/credit cards. We  are also happy to offer credit facilities subject to the usual checks.

If you are worried about the security of your assets, you will be delighted with the quality of our products.
