    Hi, guys. My name's Darrel. I'm the head of the Tech Team here at
    LocksOnline.co.uk and thanks for tuning in and have a look at some of our
    YouTube videos. We're doing some product reviews today, so what I've got
    here in front of me is the Era Fortress Lock, one of the stable mortise sash locks that are available from Era. It's a very, very popular
    lock. It's used in the country an incredibly large amount.



    What we have here is this is the actual lock case. I'm going to get it out
    of the bag here. If you can, hop in and have a look at it. So, this is the
    sash lock version and to give you guys some sort of idea as to what you're
    getting here. I mean, you'll see here on the front, you'll see that there's
    a different plate here on the front and that's designed to be an anti drill
    plate. Its part of the British Standard 3621 that's required for this
    particular lock to get a kite mark.



    So, what this effectively does is if somebody wants to try and drill into
    this, this is going to make it incredibly difficult to drill into. You'll
    notice here as well that there's a silver piece that's around the key hole
    there and the idea of that is it's actually a curtain that sits inside.
    What that's designed to do is that you can't physically get at the actual
    levers inside. So, if you're trying to manipulate one of these or try to
    pick them with this gate or this curtain that they call that sits in here
    then it makes it again more a requisite of the British Standard.



    On the new British Standard that's available on the market, you also need
    to project the bolt now 22 millimeters. So, you know, these particular
    types of lock will have a projection and there you go. There's how far it
    projects, like that. If you actually look, you see some black and some
    silver lines and there's anti drilling resistance inside these to stop
    anybody trying to drill through here or trying to cut through there. It
    makes it incredibly difficult.



    Now there's a range of these. This is the sash lock version. The sash means
    that you've got a latch as well which allows you to put a handle. This is
    what we call a follower here and this allows you then to put a handle in so
    you can operate the latch there and then put the key into the bottom to
    deadbolt the door which is pretty common in the UK.



    You'll notice, as well that this particular type of lock case has got holes
    there and there. A nice design to allow for bolt through furniture; some
    furniture these days come instead of screwing into the timber, you can
    actually bolt through and clamp the two together. So, that's what those
    there are for.



    So, these particular types of locks, they're available in two different
    cases, sizes. This is the two and a half inch size, but they also come as a
    three inch as well, a half inch a little bit a half inch a bit further and
    of course, everything moves then back by a half inch as well. The face
    plates, there's four different designs that are available. There's a brass
    version. There's a stainless steel version. There's a bright chrome version
    and then there's a standard satin brass version as well that are available.



    So, we can as well as locksmiths if you want to, we can actually key these
    alike for you. So, you can have some of the deadlock range of Fortress
    locks or the sash locks and you can have your back door and your front door
    or you could have two locks on the same door and therefore that one key can
    fit them. It comes standard with two keys. Comes with some fitting
    instructions here as well show you how to fit them and then this is also
    then the keep here which you would put into the frame for that which the
    lock was in.


    These are pretty standard universal finishes here. They're all of this dull
    gray finish. So, there you go. So, that's the spec on this particular type
    of lock. Comes with fixing screws and obviously this one here is the
    stainless steel version and that will sit there. Now, I'll pull this out
    because it maybe that you want to know, but on all of the locks that are
    British Standard you'll see, if you can zoom in there, you'll see that
    there's a British Standard kite mark that's actually embossed onto the face
    plate there. So, it's quite important that if your insurance are requiring
    you to have a British Standard then there's the British Standard there.


    So, this is the Era Fortress range of sash locks. They do a range of
    deadlocks as well and we can key alike the deadlocks and the sash locks
    together as well should you want to. So, there you go guys. I hope that
    this video has been informative to you and help you make your purchase or
    consider you to purchase the right lock for your particular type of
    application. One of the benefits with the Era Fortress lock is that if
    you're restricted on your budget, these are incredibly friendly to your
    budget should you need to buy a few. So, there you go. I appreciate your
    time and come back and visit us real soon. Take care now. Bye, bye.
