Anti-snap cylinder guarantee

With research revealing that there were 644,000 domestic burglary incidents in England and Wales last year, and with 70% of these burglars gaining entry through a door, it is now more important than ever that maximum-security locks are in place to offer protection from potential break-ins, Yale has announced.

The Platinum 3-Star Cylinder is Yale’s most secure lock yet, and the company is offering a £1,000 guarantee if the cylinder is snapped under attack due to a forced break-in.

Paul Atkinson, sales and commercial director of Yale Door and Window Solutions, said: “The anti-snap cylinder guarantee promises consumers that one of the crucial components of the door – the profile cylinder – is supplied by an experienced, market-leading manufacturer. The guarantee truly demonstrates the confidence we have in our product here at Yale, generating a feeling of trust for the consumer.

“The Yale Platinum 3-Star Cylinder provides maximum security against known attack methods, and it can be suited and re-pinned at Yale’s head office in the Midlands or by Kitemark approved stockists. It has also been independently tested by BSI to be awarded the British Kitemark TS007:2014 3-Star accreditation, a standard developed in response to concerns around cylinder attacks.”

The 3 Star Cylinder has also been tested to the British Standard BS EN1303:2005 and is Secured by Design approved.

As well as being anti-snap, anti-bump, anti-pick and anti-drill, the Yale Platinum 3 Star Cylinder also features a sacrificial front section.
