About Us

The Trio Group has been a family owned manufacturing and marketing business for nearly 40 years. Trio began operation in the early 1970's, producing a niche range of screen door and continuous hinges. During the 1990's Trio acquired the full manufacturing interests of Lane Architectural hardware (USA brand, based in Australia),Warlan Hardware, Distinctive Engineering and RWF Nails (now known as Hardaz).Thus forming the only large scale hinge manufacturing operation in Australia, and creating seven unique brand names, and 28 distinctive patents belonging to the Trio Group.

Today, Trio is a team of hard-working, loyal and professional employees and an experienced management team. By combining their skills and enthusiasm, with Trio's commitment to delivering quality hardware solutions, we continue to gain the respect of client across Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Europe and the Gulf Cooperation Council.

As the only hinge manufacturer since early 1999, our competitive advantage has been further enhanced with the overhaul of our manufacturing plant, and the introduction of latest technology and sustainable practices, which will continue to offer clients an affordable and timely Australian hardware solution.  

At Trio, we are very excited about the changes and challenges that lie ahead, in the Australian and international hardware markets. We will continue to focus on our core competencies, and thus ensure we are "Established for Generations."

Patriot© double cylinder deadbolt – protecting Australian families

Deadbolt locking products are the common ‘go-to’ when it comes to securing your home, however its generally been a play off between Security OR Safety – A Double Cylinder Deadbolt provides the security whilst a Single Cylinder Deadbolt offers fast and easy exit in case of an emergency.

A usual work-around for this dilemma is to simply leave a key inserted into the internal cylinder, therefor defeating the purpose of the double cylinder lock in the first place!

In Australiathere are currently more than eight million homes that require a 'deadlock' function, in order to meet the insurance companies request of ‘deadlocks fitted/installed’.

The vast majority of these eight million homes have a deadbolt fitted that has either one of two functions:
1.    Double cylinder - when locked a double cylinder ‘dead locks in the occupants unless they have a key to unlock the door’.
2.    Single cylinder and turn - addresses the danger of locking one’s family or themselves in the house, but does not meet the insurance requirements and can easily allow potential thieves to remove occupant's belongings through a door fitted with this lock.

The TRIO Patriot© difference

Trio have combined security AND safety in the one product – The Patriot – setting a new benchmark in Deadbolt Security Products and throwing in a few new Australian designed patents into the mix.

To achieve this combination, The Patriot functions in three modes;
          Unlocked: Free Entry on both sides
          Locked: Exterior Secure, Interior Free Exit
          Deadlocked: Exterior Secure, Interior Secure

The Deadbolt itself is a counter balanced bolt, meaning there’s actual locking bolt in both the door AND the frame – a traditional bolt generally throws the bolt completely into the frame which leaves a weak point at the edge of the door. Trio have achieved this security without compromise of bolt projection, so no need to worry about those doors with a larger gap between the frame.

End user benefits

The Patriot Deadlock also boasts improved safety as it cannot be accidentally deadlocked by users. The safety lock feature ensures the deadbolt needs to be primed (black indicator) before it can be deadlocked, preventing an accidental lock in. The lock also needs to be primed in order for dead-locking to take place. In this case, the operator always knows the condition of the lock as they have had to take a positive action to deadlock it.

From an installers point of view The Patriot is a breeze to work with, rekeying doesn’t require the whole lock to be stripped down and the patented adjustable spindle means it will fit doors 30-50mm without cutting or swapping tail bars.

It’s not often we see a new product like this pop up that ticks all the boxes – quick installation, multiple functionality and ease of use. The Trio Patriot Deadbolt is available from all good Locksmith and Hardware stores.

Trio’s Patriot deadbolts are available in three finishes including:

Brushed Satin Chrome Finish,Chrome Plated Finishand Satin Chrome Pearl Finish
