Brisant lock first to pass updated test

Brisant Secure has reported that its patented ALPS lock technology is the first to pass a new 2024 security test update that was introduced in January.

The update will be used for 3* euro cylinder locks by Secured by Design, PAS24 and Sold Secure Diamond.

The BSI, Sold Secure and Secured by Design are said to have introduced the new standard in order to stay one step ahead of ‘inventive burglars’ finding a way to defeat 3* locks.

Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant-Secure, said: “We are delighted to be the first to attain the new security standard. The reason nobody else has achieved the standard is because it is so tough. We knew when we acquired the Deseo business earlier this year that the ALPS (Always Locked Protection System) lock was close to achieving this new standard, so we focused on adding even more patented measures to get the test result last week.

“It’s also proof of Brisant’s commitment to being first with a solution to new security attacks.”
