Wide ranging exterior maintenance products from IronmongeryDirect

Now that spring has arrived, many organisations will be turning their attention to exterior maintenance and repairs. Leading specialist retailer IronmongeryDirect can make the procurement process more efficient, with a comprehensive choice of lighting solutions, security and safety hardware in stock to suit a range of applications.

With September 2023 marking the beginning of the phase out of fluorescent lighting, now’s the time to start sourcing suitable alternatives. IronmongeryDirect offers an extensive range of alternative exterior LED and solar panel lighting to choose from.

The Forum Coast Trosa Security Floodlight with PIR sensor is IP54 rated so suitable for heavy weather conditions, high saline environments, or areas close to the sea. There’s also the Integral LED Bollard Post Light, ideal for lighting external walkways and communal areas. It boasts a stylish, contemporary design and comes with a three-year warranty.

From a solar perspective, the Forum Zink Tanfield Ground lights and Forum Zink Blackhall floodlights make suitable energy saving alternatives to mains powered lighting. With Kelvin ratings of 4000 and 6500K respectively, both products feature a built-in photocell sensor enabling them to turn on and off automatically at dusk and dawn. The Zink Blackhall also has a microwave sensor making it more sensitive to detecting movement and changeable weather conditions to trigger the lights, ideal for creating safer outside spaces.

IronmongeryDirect also offers a variety of exterior security measures, including gate locks, latches and security devices. When securing site entrances, external buildings and gates, the Heavy Duty Secure Pattern Hasp & Staple is a reliable choice. The tough galvanised lock is supplied with suitable screws and bolts, as well as a five-year guarantee for proof of durability.

External code operated locks are also available – marine grade for withstanding harsh weather conditions. The Borg BL3130 Code Lock is easy to install on box section metal gates, and has an adjustable spring loaded latch with a throw of 65 – 80mm – to overcome varying gaps between the gate and post. For interior and exterior use, the Borg BL5201 Marine Grade Push Button Code Lock has been independently Fire Tested to BS EN 1634-1 standards (for 30 & 60 min fire door applications when used in conjunction with an intumescent kit), and has heavy duty full size external and internal lever handles.

For improving safety in sheltered areas such as car parks, IronmongeryDirect also stocks a range of Convex mirrors designed to eliminate blind spots, including the lightweight but durable Securikey Interior/Exterior Acrylic Convex Mirror, which has a shatter resistant acrylic face and protective vinyl edging.

For avoiding trips and falls, safety handrails and brackets are also available, such as the Rothley Baroque 40mm Handrail Banister Staircase Rail Support Kit, which features three 1200mm handrail tubes, two wall brackets, two connecting wall brackets, two shallow end caps, screws, Fischer wall plugs and a fitting guide. This handrail is easy to install – there’s no need for drilling – and is made from stainless steel with a robust finish.

Also easy to install are the IronmongeryDirect-provided brackets and rails from the FibreRail modular handrail system. Components such as tubes, midrails and sidemounts are all available and are Equality Act and Building Regulation compliant.
