Virtually impossible to bypass

UAP has launched the Fullex Kinetica+ K4, a 3-Star cylinder lock.

Building on the credentials of the Fullex Kinetica locking range, Kinetica+ K4 combines a standard 3-Star cylinder lock profile with multiple design features, delivering a lock that is easy to install but virtually impossible to bypass, the company said.

Rigorously tested at UAP’s in-house test facility, and by a third party testing house as part of the product development process, the new lock has defeated the newest methods of gaining entry developed by locksmiths and is Secured by Design, British Kitemarked and Sold Secure Diamond Standard.

David Jennings, CEO of UAP, said: “We invest in continuous product development at UAP because we know that the criminal fraternity never stops devising new ways to defeat security hardware, so we need to ensure that we are always several steps ahead of them.

“With the Fullex Kinetica+ K4, we wanted to develop a best-in-class locking system that will set a new benchmark for the sector, providing homeowners with complete peace of mind while offering door manufacturers, contractors and locksmiths an easy-to-install product at a very competitive price point from a brand they trust.

“By combining multiple patented technologies engineered by our design team and working with established manufacturing partners to produce the locks to our strict quality assurance standards, we have achieved those goals with the Fullex Kinetica+ K4.”

The security features have allowed the lock to be designed with no ring on the cam, making installation faster and easier. A single sacrificial cut-line on the outside of the cylinder ensures a more robust and durable lock with improved protection from moisture and dust ingress, while aiding ease of installation.

The Kinetica+ K4 also includes UAP’s patented anti-bump system and three anti-pick pins.

Supplied in plastic-free packaging, Kinetica+ K4 is available with a choice of key or thumb turn internal locking. The thumb turn model features the patent-pending Fullex Helix Easy Turn System, which provides effortless operation with no pressure needed to push before turning.

The lock has been designed to reduce the risk of the thumb turn being inadvertently left from its security vertical position by a red indicator to confirm that the door has been properly locked from the inside.
