Kwikset Launches Contemporary Handleset Line, Vancouver

Vancouver Makes a Bold Statement, Beginning at The Front Door

LAKE FOREST, CA (August 12, 2019) – The Kwikset® brand of Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware & Home Improvement Division today announces the launch of Vancouver for design conscious consumers. Available in four finishes, Vancouver is the ideal handleset for those seeking a sleek, custom look at an affordable price.

Kwikset’s Vancouver handleset makes a bold statement, starting right at the front door. The single cylinder deadbolt and matching interior trim showcase a clean, low profile design inside and outside the home.

“Vancouver is the ideal handleset for a homeowner looking to upgrade their door hardware themselves and give their entryway an instant refresh,” says Dalton Baca, Kwikset Signature Series Product Manager, Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware & Home Improvement Division. “Our latest Signature Series handleset provides a contemporary aesthetic without breaking the bank, and goes above and beyond to include Microban antimicrobial product protection and best-in-class security. People can trust their hardware is clean and their home is safe.”

The new contemporary handleset is the first to feature both Kwikset patented SmartKey Security™ and Microban antimicrobial product protection.

About SmartKey Security: SmartKey Security protects against common and forced entry break-in methods like lock picking, lock bumping and torque attacks. Additionally, because of Kwikset patented SmartKey Security, homeowners can reset their security themselves by re-keying a lock quickly and easily; rendering lost, loaned or unreturned keys useless.

About Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection: Vancouver is the first handleset to feature Microban antimicrobial product protection, a result of an industry-first partnership between Kwikset and Microban, the global leader in built-in antimicrobial protection. The industry-first innovation helps inhibit the growth of bacteria on frequently touched door hardware surfaces in the home. Microban works continuously to keep the door handle cleaner, fighting against bacteria that would normally double in number every 20 minutes. The finish will also enhance hardware durability to maintain the look and quality of the hardware throughout the products’ lifetime.

Vancouver is now available for purchase at select retailers for a suggested retail price of $159. The handleset is available in four finishes: Venetian Bronze, Satin Nickel, Polished Chrome and Iron Black.
