Chubb Rim Locks Join Union Range In New C-Series
The famous range of Chubb rim locks is now available from UNION in the new C-Series.
This is the final stage in the plan to migrate Chubb products to the UNION and Yale brands, ahead of the discontinuation of the licence to use Chubb on locking products from August 2010, other than on a limited range of specialist custodial locks.
Eight Chubb rim locks in a choice of standard, narrow and traditional styles are now available in the new UNION C-Series, including the BS high security 4L67E rim lock.
The kitemarked BS3621:2007 4L67E rim lock still features a high security cylinder with anti-drill and anti-pick features, as well as automatic deadlocking action and a lockable internal knob. This lock also carries Secured by Design approval.
The UNION branded products are exactly the same as their Chubb predecessors and will be made in the same factory, by the same people using the same technology. Other than the brand name, there is no difference and the UNION products are still 'Chubb at Heart'.
The full range of Chubb rim locks can still be ordered and a part number conversion guide is available to help Chubb customers switch to buying UNION.
Commenting on the rim locks in the new UNION C-Series, Managing Director David Wigglesworth said:
"The introduction of Chubb rim locks to the UNION range is the final stage in a carefully planned programme to migrate Chubb products to equally famous and trusted brands.
"UNION is the number one trade brand, so it was logical that Chubb rim locks, along with Chubb mortice locks and padlocks, would move across to the UNION range.
"Every single Chubb rim lock is still available to customers in the new UNION C-Series, including the well-respected insurance approved 4L67E rim lock and UNION is well placed to continue serving this important market.
"We have been working hard to reduce any confusion for customers and help make the transition as smooth as possible. Where Chubb part numbers have changed, we have included all details in an easy-to-use conversion guide to help make the switch simple.
"The UNION C-Series offers the full range of trusted Chubb rim locks, with the product support, customer service and market expertise of another equally famous security brand."
