composite door Locks

Choosing the right locking mechanism for your composite door is a delicate balance between convenience and security. To help simplify this process for you, we have developed a range of user friendly videos to help explain the key features of each door lock, so you can choose the right one for your home.

Whether you’re a first time homeowner or upgrading your old front door, you can trust Endurance to deliver the perfect balance of style and security. Browse our range of multipoint, automatic, and smart locking systems and find the right security solution
for your home today.

Multipoint locking mechanisms

Our range of locking mechanisms offers an exceptional level of security, allowing you to relax knowing that your home is protected by some of the most tried and tested locking technology available. Instead of relying on a single point of engagement, these systems secure your door at multiple points along the frame. Operating with a single lever handle, the central gearbox activates hooks or bolts that extend into the frame, providing a robust defence against forced entry.

All multipoint mechanisms from Endurance are compatible with our 3* high-security cylinders, exceeding industry standards for enhanced security. Designed for convenience, durability, and weather resistance, multipoint locking mechanisms offer homeowners a reliable and comprehensive solution for safeguarding their homes.

Guardian 5

The Guardian5 is the standard high-security multipoint locking mechanism for Endurance Doors. This mechanism is engaged by raising a traditional lever handle, which throws five nickel plated deadbolts into the frame. Providing multiple solid points of contact, making your front door resistant to intruders.

This mechanism is perfect for those seeking the freedom to come and go from their home without the worry of getting accidentally locked out. The key difference between the Guardian5 and its average multipoint counterpart is its enhanced sprung gearbox. This creates a reduction in the operational force required to engage the mechanism, creating more than just an increase in security, it also creates a smoother user experience.

5 Point Mechanism

Developed in conjunction with ERA, the 5-point locking mechanism features four high security opposing hooks positioned along the frame and a central brass deadbolt to prevent forced entry.

When in the fully thrown position, the bi-directional position of the hooks also provides improved compression and weather-sealing. For daytime use, this multipoint mechanism also features a simple day-latch, offering the perfect solution for security conscious homeowners.

While the Guardian5 features multiple deadbolts and the 5 Point boasts bi-directional hooks, these multipoint mechanisms are two of the most secure options available for composite doors.


Slam Shut mechanisms

Slam shut locks are auto locking mechanisms designed to provide a seamless and secure locking mechanism for your doors. Unlike traditional locks that require manual locking, auto-slam shut locks automatically engage when the door is closed. This means you don’t have to worry about forgetting to lock your doors or the possibility of leaving them unlocked when you’re in a hurry.

Automatic locking mechanisms utilise a variety of features to seal and secure your property when you close the door behind you, from magnetic triggers to automatic firing pins. Our AV2 and AV3 locking options are available in both the standard and heritage positions to best suit the style of your composite door.


This Auto locking mechanism operates as soon as the door closes behind you, removing the need to lift a lever to hook the door into place, creating a smoother experience when you enter your home.

Once the door is slammed shut, all of the firing pins engage with 2 steel hooks that are built with high-tensile strength. The deadbolt itself activates by turning the key. Meaning that your composite door comes with in-built security features before the door even gets locked.

These automatic locking features help secure your door in place, making this mechanism ideally suited to FD30 Fire Doors.


This advanced autolocking mechanism is the next step in the evolution of the AV2, the AV3 features a daytime latch that can be activated for times when flexible entry from the outside is required without the use of the key.

Unlike the automatic locks on the AV2 which shuts as soon as the door is slammed to trigger the firing pins, the automatic locking process on the AV3 is activated with magnetic trigger technology. This allows for the door to lock into place without additional locking.


Smart locking mechanisms

Adding a smart locking system to your composite door provides a modern solution designed to provide convenience and control. These innovative locks allow you to manage access to and from your property with features ranging from keyless entry, fingerprint technology and intercom systems. Whether you are looking for an entry solution for a private residence,

shared accommodation or rented property you can enjoy the flexibility of granting temporary access, receiving security alerts, and monitoring door activity from any location. Providing an ideal choice for homeowners seeking a modern and efficient home entry solution.


The ERA TouchKey is a highly secure and versatile keyless entry and exit solution, that uses multi-level authentication. It combines traditional mechanical door hardware with world-renowned smart technology, offering new ways to access your home without needing a key.

TouchKey’s user-friendly interface and built-in reporting capabilities make managing access a breeze. You can easily add or remove users, track who is coming and going and receive alerts if there are any attempted breaches.

There’s even a physical hidden key override for the ultimate peace of mind. TouchKey is available in Chrome and Graphite finishes, each supplied with three keys and handy keyrings to remove the decorative cylinder cap.


For those seeking added comfort and convenience alongside the impressive features of the AV2 automatic locking system, the blueMatic AV2-E goes beyond just mechanically securing doors. This advanced system not only locks doors but also offers a motorised opening function, providing an extra layer of ease.

Ideal for residents in shared accommodation, apartments, and communal entrances, the motorised operation of doors can be crucial. The locked door can be easily opened from the inside using the door handle as usual, or from both inside and outside using access control options like audio/visual intercom systems or fingerprint scanners. It’s the perfect solution for a hassle-free and secure entry experience.



The ABS Master locking cylinder is precision engineered to respond when it comes under attack from potential intruders, activating its measures to keep your property and yourloved ones safe.



Every Endurance Composite Door is supplied with 5 high security keys that are impossible to replicate without your security code. So that only you and those you trust with a key can access your property.
