Heritage Hardware

Our heritage hardware range for our composite doors allow us to create classic designs that maintain a traditional aesthetic, with all the benefits of a composite door. 

Architectural heritage in the UK and Ireland is an important element of many of our finest cities and their respective period buildings. With many 18th & 19th Century buildings being listed and in conservation areas it is paramount that any front door replacements are a sympathetic reproduction of a period classic.

Winkhaus AV2 Heritage Automatic Locking System Details

Winkhaus AV2 Heritage is a modern locking system door created to complement replacement period doors but also prestige modern doors that seek to make a statement in the burgeoning apartment market.

The euro profile locking cylinder of AV2 Heritage is located at a similar height to a traditional round cylinder pull but provides instant higher security as the lock is operated automatically as soon as the door is closed. This means that an external lever handle is not required to operate the locking points and the lock can be deadlocked or opened externally by turning the key a quarter of a turn.

From the inside the door can be opened by an internal thumbturn. The door is automatically locked when closed from the inside and the key is required to gain entry from the outside.


  • Compliments both traditional period and contemporary doors
  • Automatic locking on closing the door with 2 solid anti pushback hooks which fully penetrate the steel keeps helping to prevent forcing apart of the door and frame
  • Offers low operates forces and a high level of weather performance
