As brand new suppliers to NMBS we have developed a retail range of architecturally specified door hardware and door security products which have been tested to relevant standards such as Secured by Design and BSi Kitemark. The range includes door knockers, door viewers, letterplates, euro cylinders, mortice locks, letters and numerals, door chains, door handles, identity card slots, window restrictors and sash jammers. All of these are available in high impact yellow and black blister packaging.
We have been busy over the past year working with renowned Locksmith Chris Belcher developing the next generation of super smooth cylinders. We are now pleased to announce the launch of the UAP ZeroLift Advance.
The new BSi Kitemark TS007:2012 1 star cylinder, which will replace the current UAP ZeroLift euro cylinder, offers extra security and a super smooth turning action. The UAP ZeroLift Advance uses a revolutionary system of timing pins; these control the physical timing when a cylinder is bumped. This system provides us with an anti-bump cylinder that does not contain trap pins.
We recently developed a shroud extension for our range of hidden fix letterplate security shrouds and are pleased to announce that when combined the shroud and extension meet the new TS008:2012 standards. We are one of the first, if not the first, companies to meet this standard.
The extension is available as either right or left side and attaches to the letterplate restrictor shroud to prevent lock manipulation.
We will be heading down to the Totally DIY show for the first time in a few weeks to launch MAX6MUM SECURITY® to the retail market.
Former Leeds United and England legends Norman Hunter and Paul Reaney and former Welsh Captain Terry Yorath will be on our stand helping us kick off our first appearance at the show by challenging visitors to a game of table football.
The animation stars our very own superhero Max and his twin tots Milo and Millie. It demonstrates how easy it is for a child to fall from a window and therefore the importance of making sure the opening of a window is restricted.
As we approach the end of another year we are all preparing to close down for the Christmas period, but before we do that we would like to thank all of our customers for their support this year.
2013 has seen several changes and new developments for us, we had a great time at the FIT Show getting to spend time with you all and introducing everybody to our new external sales team, headed up by Dee Chamberlain. We have also launched several new ranges including our 2* High Security Handles, 2* Cylinder Guards, the iPlate and our Straight Length Pull Handles.
We have stepped up the marketing for our retail brand MAX6MUM SECURITY® with the aim of establishing the brand as the “go to” for security and safety solutions.
The last month has seen some new developments for MAX6MUM SECURITY® with the launch of the new consumer website and the introduction of two new characters to the MAX6MUM SECURITY® family. We have also recently run a radio campaign to promote the Baby and Child Window-Safe™ Restrictor and are now sponsoring the Smooth Radio North West Toy Appeal.
It’s Children in Need day! We made a promise at the beginning of the week that we would donate 1% of every invoice raised to the charity and we have received some fantastic support from our customers.
But now we would like to give one final push to ensure that we give all we can to Children in Need, therefore we will be doubling our donation.
Here at UAP we take charity seriously and few companies have dedicated more of their time and resources to charitable projects.
This year we are giving a percentage of every invoice we raise during the week of Children in Need to the charity. The money raised will go towards helping disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK.
So, the more our customers support UAP, the more UAP will give to this great charity.
The Royal Association for the Prevention of Accidents has reported that each year 4,000 children fall out of a window. With our radio campaign we hope to raise awareness of this issue and to promote the solution of our window restrictor.
After much anticipation the 2013 MLA Expo finally arrived, and even if we do say ourselves, was a great success.
We always like to thank our customers for coming out to see us by giving them a good reason to come by our stand, this year we stepped it up a notch with exclusive looks at new tools, a first look at our brand new Mortice Lock ID app, ready for download for your iPhone now, and FREE personalised laser engraving for Genuine Lishi 2-in-1’s.
We received a lot of interest in our new Mortice Lock Impressioning Kit which we launched at the show. This will enable you to make Mortice Lock keys on the go and will be available on the TradeLocks website soon.
Adding high security to your doors doesn’t have to cost the earth. We have devised three affordable ways in which you can achieve the important TS007:2012 Kitemark three star rating with Secured by Design approval.
The three star security rating was developed by Glass and Glazing Federation and Door and Hardware Federation in response to thieves using more sophisticated ways of breaking into doors which have been broadcast on the internet. The Kitemark gives individual products a one, two or three star rating. These products can then be used on their own or combined to achieve three stars.
The MLA Expo is just 2 weeks away and we are set to make a splash with new tools, low prices and a few freebies thrown in for good measure.
Here’s a sneak peak as to what to expect from the UAP TradeLocks stand this year.
We will be launching our brand new Mortice Lock Impressioning Kit at the show, this will enable you to make Mortice Lock keys on the go. We will also be releasing our new Mortice Lock ID App for iPhones. Don’t worry if you’re an Android user we will be releasing an Adroid version in the future. With this you will be able to identify a mortice lock, then gives information on it and advises on the best tool to open it.
The eagerly awaited MAX6MUM SECURITY App, which was previewed at the FIT Show, is now available to download for FREE for iPads. The app enables the user to create their own MAX6MUM SECURITY door which will protect against burglars, vandals and bogus callers.
The app received a positive reception at the FIT Show as it enables the customers to have a catalogue of available door hardware and door security products in the palm of their hands, and they can even see what the product looks like on a door.
We have recently invested in a high quality, professional printer so we can now print out whatever we want instantly. This means that we can tailor our marketing materials to our customers. So if you want a poster with your logo and information on it, we can give it to you.
We believe that the printer will open many more marketing possibilities for both us and our customers. We can tailor leaflets, flyers brochures etc to specific customers, regions and industries. We will also have much more flexibility as we will not have to comply with minimum quantities that are required from printing companies, and we will eliminate the lead time. We can print our desired quantity instantly.
We have recently added 6 Lever Mortice Locks to our MAX6MUM SECURITY range of affordable, high quality door security products. So, what makes the MAX6MUM SECURITY Mortice Locks any different to other Mortice Locks out there?
Well, to start with our Mortice Locks are 6 Lever, this means greater security against picking; the anti-picks on each lever are really good and the anti-pick on the stump adds to the protection. To aid our anti-pick we have worked with renowned Locksmiths Martin Pink and Chris Belcher to develop a unique extended warding on the Mortice Curtain.
Letterplate designs have been pretty stagnant for the past few years, with new releases being a variation of one basic design. So we decided to do something about it and have taken the Letterplate to the next level.
The iPlate has a unique frameless design, patent pending soft close mechanism, corrosion proof construction, a unique un-sprung hinge and a patent pending magnetic ‘click to close’ feature.
To celebrate the start of the Great British Summer we’re offering massive savings on all TradeLocks products.
We’ll be slashing the VAT on orders over £100 for the two whole weeks, so no one should miss out on these fantastic Summer Savings.
All TradeLocks customers can receive 20% off on ALL TradeLocks products including everything from Pink’s EPG2 to Belcher’s RPCP Kit, from Genuine Lishi tools to Training Locks and from MAX6MUM SECURITY to UAP Cylinders.
Those of you who came to the FIT Show may have seen a muscly “Superhero” walking the halls, or you may have seen his face on a cupcake and wondered what it was all about. If you came to see us on our stand all would have been revealed, for those of you who didn’t we have launched a brand new range of retail products, MAX6MUM SECURITY.
We have developed architecturally specified products at very reasonable prices to both yourselves and the consumer. The range of products come in high impact yellow and black blister packaging and is backed by full marketing support making MAX6MUM SECURITY ideal for those of you with trade counters.
Being able to offer all of our customers a local Sales Representative is great, however we thought offering our customers their own Sales team would be even better. So we teamed up each of our external Sales Managers with an internal Customer Advisor.
Barry has joined UAP as the Northern Sales Area Manager. Barry is mad about sports and is a keen footballer and golfer.
Interesting Fact: Barry once queued for 3 hours to be hit on the head by Timmy Mallet.
For the past few months there has been one favoured topic of conversation as everyone eagerly awaited the arrival of the Fabricators Installers Trade Show. With all eyes in the industry watching the FIT Show to see if the years of hard work and hundreds of thousands of pounds spent were worth it, there was a lot of pressure on the organisers. However I think everyone will agree it was a fantastic show.
We have been busy here at UAP developing several innovative new products to be launched at the FIT Show.
MAX6MUM SECURITY 2 Star Handle
To help our customers comply with the new TS007 3* standards we are releasing a high quality, ergonomically designed 2 star handle range that is packed with state of the art features.The MAX6MUM SECURITY 2 Star Handle has an integrated cylinder guard adding extra protection against lock snapping. The handle also has self-adhesive tabs to add to the attack resistance, assist in easy fitting and to aid water penetration resistance.
The new team members will be positioned all over the UK giving us National Sales coverage, meaning that our customers will have dedicated local representatives.
Our new Northern Sales Area Manager, Barry Halpin , and Southern Sales Area Manager, Andrew Grosvenor, joined our team last week. Since starting they have been busy introducing themselves to all of our customers.
We launched MAX6MUM SECURITY at the Irish Hardware Fair over the weekend. The new range offers high quality, affordable and easy to fit door security for the retail market; included in the range is the 67mm 5 Pin Irish Market Replacement Cylinder which is anti-snap and anti-bump.

We will also be showcasing our vast range of door hardware and door security products including our new High Security Door Handles and Irish Market Replacement Cylinders.
The Hardware/DIY Home Garden Show will be taking place on Sunday 17th – Monday 18th February 2013 at Citywest Exhibition Centre, Co. Dublin. Come and visit us at stand J9/H9.

We will be making our first appearance at the Hardware/DIY Home Garden Show where we’ll be launching MAX6MUM SECURITY, our new high-security guaranteed door hardware brand for homeowners.
The MAX6MUM SECURITY range includes the patented UAP+ Zero Lift Cylinder which is Anti-Bump, Anti-Snap, Anti-Drill and Anti-Pick; we are so confident that this high security cylinder cannot be bumped that we’re offering homeowners a guarantee of up to €2,500 worth of property if the lock is bumped and the insurance won’t pay out.
The FIT Show is just around the corner and everyone’s going! Well I don’t know if everyone is going but we definitely are and we have lots of exciting new things to show. We’ll be launching MAX6MUM SECURITY, our new high-security guaranteed door hardware brand for homeowners and we will be introducing the face of MAX6MUM SECURITY, our brand new super hero Max (see pic to left), to visitors.
Here at UAP TradeLocks we like to make life as easy as possible for our customers, which is why we offer next day delivery as standard on all stocked products.
We understand that with the vast array of door furniture and cylinders on offer it is not efficient for customers to keep large stocks, however we have over 1,500 product lines in stock so we can deliver next day as standard and offer a service that is as seamless as if customers held the stock themselves.
UAP TradeLocks are now using YouTube as a fundamental marketing tool to demonstrate key features of all products, show latest innovations and to promote company news.
We have already been using the popular social media site for two years but will now use it as an important part of their marketing strategy. YouTube provides us with the opportunity to share videos easily and to promote them amongst a targeted audience through other channels such as Twitter and Facebook.
UAP TradeLocks headed over to Ireland at the weekend to join JB Key at their Open Day. We enjoyed great success with visitors crowding in to get a look at our new MAX6MUM SECURITY range.
UAP TradeLocks’ representatives were on hand to showcase the latest TradeLocks products on offer from JB Key; these included the MAX6MUM SECURITY range, Genuine Lishi and locksmith tools.
You’re called out to a customer’s house to replace their lock for one reason or another – maybe they’ve been victims to a crime or they’ve just lost their keys – when you arrive you realise that their current cylinder is a basic budget euro cylinder and there is also no evidence that this customer has any security measures on their door. This is the perfect opportunity to UPSELL to your customers and to leave them with enhanced security and peace of mind.
If you currently sell or are thinking of selling hardware to retail customers, then MAX6MUM SECURITY is for you.
Brought to you by UAP Limited, MAX6MUM SECURITY is a brand new retail range consisting of UAP’s most popular products in retail packaging, enabling you to maximise your sales opportunities.
The MAX6MUM SECURITY range will be sold exclusively through Trade Counters and Independent Stores across the UK from May 2012.
