Rave review for Iron Guard cylinder
Carl F Groupco has reported positive feedback for the enhanced variation of the Iron Guard 3* cylinder by Federal, which was introduced to the company’s portfolio in November last year.
Paul Wanless, director at Universal Window Repairs, which has partnered with Carl F Groupco since 2020, explained: “Having worked closely with the Carl F Groupco team, we appreciate first-hand the strength of its hardware offer. After discussions with their regional sales manager, Andrew Price, about the benefits of the new enhanced Iron Guard 3* cylinder, we were convinced of its security credentials, practicality and value for money.”
Paul continued: “The 3* cylinder provides maximum security compliance, featuring advanced elements such as a patented firing pin mechanism which engages if the cylinder is snapped. Additionally, the cam locks itself down, preventing unauthorised access and providing an additional layer of security and peace of mind for our trade partners, which is important.”
The cylinder’s advanced security features include a unique trap pin, which activates during attempted picking or bumping, locking the plug and preventing access. In both scenarios, the cylinder can still be operated safely from the inside of the property.
An added advantage is its non-handed design, with sacrificial cut features on both sides for consistent anti-snap protection, regardless of the fitting direction. The horizontal keyway has a secure dimple cut key and a visible Kitemark on the face.
The nickel finish with a brass barrel is available in double, single, and thumb turn options, as well as keyed-alike pairs, and comes with five keys and a keycard for secure registration and reordering.
