New anti-bump cylinder
Mila has added a new anti-bump 1-Star BSI Kitemarked cylinder to its range.
Mila customers can now choose from three levels of cylinder security, depending on the application and price point: at the top of the range, there is the Mila ProSecure 3-Star anti-snap cylinder, which meets the Master Locksmith’s Association Sold Secure Diamond Standard; in the middle is the new enhanced security ProSecure 1-Star cylinder with anti-bump technology; and, at entry level, there is Mila’s ProLinea BreakSafe™ cylinder, complete with a sacrificial cut line and six-pin security protection. All are available from stock.
The new Mila ProSecure 1-Star TS007 enhanced security cylinder is accredited to PAS24, TS007 and Secured by Design. It is designed to pair with Mila’s 2-Star ProSecure security handle, which demonstrates maximum 3-Star TS007 compliance.
Available in brushed nickel or brushed brass finish, it features six anti-manipulation pins to prevent cylinder picking, drilling and bumping, and a sacrificial snap line which detaches the external section if it is tampered with, leaving the cylinder body protected and secure.
Mila’s managing director Richard Gyde said: “There was a time when cylinders were largely seen as commodity products, with price the driving factor in product selection. Since the advent of cylinder snapping and bumping and the tightening of the PAS24 test in 2016 though, the market has changed and, in both the retail and commercial market, buyers are scrutinising and prioritising security more than ever before.
“For Mila customers, a key element in being able to respond to those buyers is demonstrating the fact that our TS007 accredited products are all Kitemarked. That means they haven’t just passed the test once with a sample product, but they continue to be tested and audited regularly via a third party.”
