Orion’s three stars
VBH has introduced the new Orion 3-Star barrel.
Orion is tested to TS007 and is rated as a 3-Star profile cylinder, which means that it offers full protection against drilling, picking, bumping and snapping without the need for any additional support such as a security handle or shroud.
Orion is supplied with five Q-branded dimple keys for the standard individual cylinders and is available in nickel and brass finishes in key/key and thumb turn variants. Keyed-alike pairs and suites are also available. The thumb turn itself features a button that releases the cam from the inside after the interlocking mechanism has activated following a cylinder attack. This ensures that the door can be opened quickly from the inside.
Dan Powell, VBH head of sales, said: “We’ve taken our time developing Orion as we wanted to make sure it was just right for our customers, whether they’re fabricators or installers, or if they’re on the locksmith or repair side. From the feedback we’ve had, our greenteQ design team have got it right again.”
As well as its 10-year performance guarantee, Orion is backed by the proteQ10 snap guarantee that will pay the homeowner £2,000 if the cylinder snaps and allows a break in. This is on top of the Q-secure guarantee that will pay out up to £8,000 in the event of an intrusion.
