Doors – Fire Doors

Product Description

The automation feature means doors will automatically lock as soon as they are closed, providing high security where it is needed the most. Used in combination with an access control system, door automation features provide added security for independent living and social housing.

At Sovereign, we supply two different automation systems from Winkhaus:


Ease of use with three-point security

  • Automatic locking when closing the door – no need for manual locking
  • High security against manipulation
  • Optional retrofitting available
  • Hook bolts and deadbolt are retracted by an electric motor when the door is opened
  • Compatible with other STV products
  • Optional electronic access-controlled locking system
  • Versatile – suitable for a variety of applications including social housing and communal doors

The AV2E automation lock; from Winkhaus, providing exceptional security through two solid hook bolts that prevent the door from being penetrated by typical burglary tools. A fail-safe device stops the bolts from being unintentionally released.

The extended solid hook bolts prevent tampering from the outside – they cannot be pushed back by credit cards or other tools and a high resistance against forced entry is guaranteed.


Automatic multi-point locking

  • No need to lift handle to engage locking system – it automatically locks as soon as the door is closed
  • Compatible with electronic multi-access control systems
  • Compatible with other Winkhaus products
  • Ability to upgrade to AV2E
  • Designed for use on timber, aluminium and composite doors – but can be used on some uPVC systems

Ideal for FD30 fire doors in multi-occupancy dwellings and social housing environments, the AV2 lock automation system prevents the door from warping in the event of a fire with three automatically-engaging locks that keep the door sealed and in place to achieve a 30 minute fire door rating.
