The new ‘Centaur’ lock features India’s first dual motion technology
Bangalore, 22nd August 2023: The iconic Godrej Locks brand, a business unit of Godrej & Boyce, the flagship company of the Godrej Group, in an unwavering commitment to providing homeowners with cutting-edge safety solutions, has introduced Anti-Pick Technology across its locking solutions to thwart burglary attempts. Understanding the evolving landscape of security threats, Godrej Locks has harnessed the power of technology to create locks that offer unparalleled safety for modern homes.
As technology continues to evolve, the methods employed by criminals to gain unauthorized access to homes also advances. Recognizing the importance of constantly updating their products to meet the challenges posed by burglars, Godrej Locks has curated a comprehensive range of innovative locking solutions through seamless fusion of expert craftsmanship, precision engineering, and rigorous testing that set new benchmarks for home safety.
India’s first dual motion Centaur lock is a true testament to Godrej Locks’ unwavering dedication to safety. The Centaur lock utilizes dual-motion technology, combining horizontal and vertical latching, effectively performing the function of two locks in one. This groundbreaking design ensures double the safety, providing homeowners with enhanced protection and unparalleled peace of mind.
The Centaur lock incorporates EXS+ technology, combined with hybrid bolt motion, ensuring superior safety and crowbar resistance. The lock’s deadbolts engage with the receptacle in two steps: the first throw, like a conventional rim lock, and the second throw, projecting the bolts vertically outward like the Vertibolt mechanism, securely anchoring them in place. To provide homeowners with added flexibility, the Centaur lock’s easily reversible latch caters to both inside and outside opening doors. Additionally, the latch puller arrest function prevents accidental lockouts, ensuring convenience without compromising safety. Moreover, this lock is available in three attractive finishes – satin nickel, antique brass, and antique copper, complementing the aesthetics of any home while offering unmatched protection.
Shyam Motwani, Business Head at Godrej Locks & Architectural Fittings and Systems, said, “Our latest Centaur lock represents the culmination of extensive research, expert engineering, and meticulous testing. Its Anti-Pick Technology and hybrid bolt motion make it a formidable barrier against break-ins, setting new standards for home safety. With the rise of advanced burglary techniques, homeowners need safety solutions that can withstand even the most sophisticated break-in attempts. We understand the ever-changing landscape of security threats and strives to stay ahead of the curve by introducing advanced locking solutions. With such innovative design, homeowners can experience enhanced protection. Our campaign ‘Go Live Freely’ has been inspired from this sense of safety itself. We try to convey to our consumers that there is a certain freedom of movement, of lifestyle when one is not constantly worried about their home and its safety. That is the assurance we try to convey through each and every innovation.”
Adding on business aspect, Mr. Motwani said, “As a leading force in mechanical and traditional locks with a 33% market share, we have always prioritized design-led innovations and the seamless integration of technology to deliver exceptional safety. The market is evolving and so is Godrej Locks.”
