world-beating padlock, with the seriously heavy

The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB)
Designed as the world’s strongest production
padlock, Squire’s SS100 padlock is designed for
commercial premises where extra high security
is a priority for facilities managers and specifiers
– for example, perimeter gates, warehouses,
outbuildings, shipping containers, heavy
uses. The system can have ‘same key’ cylinders,
where both cylinders operate under the same key.
They can be keyed to di er, where the padlock
uses two di erent keys to operate it, and both
versions can be keyed-alike and master-keyed.
The SS100CS features a mega 4.3kg solid steel
lock body that is capable of a tensile pull of over
24 tonnes (independently tested) – equivalent to
taking the weight of two London double decker
The LPCB is the leading international
certification body in security and fire protection.
LPCB approval is recognised by governments
and regulatory authorities across the world and
provides confidence that security systems will give
protection against criminal intrusion and terrorist

Squire Stronghold padlock range, which comes
in many sizes and shackle variants, and include
solid hardened steel lock body, electrophoretic
anti-corrosion finish, hardened boron alloy steel

PRINTMAKERS’ “CREATIVE ASPIRATIONS”
The redevelopment of a derelict building
into a new centre for printmaking production
for Edinburgh Printmakers has included the
installation of a range of innovative lighting
solutions from Zumtobel, who worked with
building services consultancy, Harley Haddow,
Edinburgh and architects Page\Park.
The refurbished 5,300m building has been designed to make minimum
use of energy and incorporates a range of innovative technologies to combine
comfort, ease of use and energy e iciency.
Zumtobel’s Tecton Black continuous row lighting system has been used
across multiple areas of the building, allowing all functions such as power
supply, lighting control and connection with emergency lighting to be quickly
installed and seamlessly integrated into the multifunctional trunking system.
With a luminaire e iciency of up to 168 lumens per watt, Tecton also o ers key
Resclite PRO from Zumtobel is providing the flexible, programmable and
e icient emergency lighting throughout the facility. This smart emergency
luminaire utilises new lenses to provide enhanced flexibility and combines an
unobtrusive look with the highest function-driven performance.
Zumtobel worked hard with the design team to understand both the
functional needs and specific technical requirements of each space and this is
clearly evidenced in the design of the lighting, particularly the use of LITECOM
Lighting Controls which has reduced the complexity of the lighting controls.

GERFLOR’S COLOURFUL SAFETY FLOORING
FOR HULL’S BONUS ARENA
Gerflor’s highly proven, slip-resistant
Tarasafe Standard vinyl flooring was
found to be the perfect safety flooring
solution for the heavy-duty, high slip-risk
areas within the City of Hull’s new stateof
the-art, multiple events complex,
named the Bonus Arena.
As quality was not to be compromised
by budget, products were needed for
the development that could provide exceptional value-for-money. Therefore,
straightforward to maintain floorcoverings that met exacting specification
criteria and which could handle exceedingly high levels of footfall whilst retaining
their aesthetically pleasing appearance were essential.
Having been put forward for specification by CFI Flooring, Tarasafe’s colour
choices were then made in collaboration
with project architect AFL Architects and
main contractor BAM Construction.
“The building’s palette of colours was
very important to us as this is a venue of
entertainment,” said Rita Ochoa, Project
Architect, AFL Architects. “We took the
unusual step of agreeing colours at the
outset to inform us on other aspects
of the building and therefore needed
products that combined specification,
budget and colour requirements.”
The Stronghold brand o ers added reassurance
that the padlocks themselves have been tested
in-house, as proof they can withstand the harshest
Plus, most of the extra high security Stronghold
range has the added benefit of being CEN
tested and approved, which is testament to the
company’s reputation for long lasting toughness.
Today, Squire is recognised for some of the most
technologically advanced products in lock making.
The Squire name has been at the forefront of
lock making since 1780, with a great British history
carried down through eight generations.
Squire has produced a video to demonstrate
