UAP has recently launched an exclusive range of Black 1* Kitemarked Sacrificial Cut Euro Cylinders, which conform to the highest of EN1303:2005 standards. The cylinders have been re-engineered from original Zerolift cylinders, and they not only combine all of the attractive, customer-friendly features of the original Zerolift, but each cylinder is packed full of security features.
Each black cylinder is part of UAP’s super smooth cylinders using the Patented Chris Belcher designed anti-bump timing pin system. This very clever system uses nickel plated hardened steel key pins and driver pins, which gives the anti-drill feature UAP wanted to incorporate. The Patented timing pins are designed to interrupt the timing of the pins when bumped, and it is highly effective. And because the cylinders use special pins rather than trap pins, there is not a high expense to get this anti-bump feature! The timing pins also have inbuilt anti-picks, and mushroom driver pins, which makes them highly effective against picking.
Kevin Pritchard, Tradelocks Manager, explains “The cylinders also have a sacrificial cut line on them. If force is applied to the end of the cylinder in an attempt to break the cylinder to gain access, on standard cylinders, the weakest part of the cylinder is the screw hole which is in the centre of the cylinder (as there is less metal here). When force is applied, the cylinder will break away at this screw hole, making it very easy to manipulate the cylinder into opening. On the UAP+ 1* Kitemarked Euro Cylinder, the cylinder will break away to the sacrificial cut line only, leaving the locking mechanism intact. If the cylinder is broken at this sacrificial cut line, the last 2 pins in the chamber remain in the cylinder, meaning that the cylinder can still be locks and unlocked with the key. The sacrificial cut lines are also on both sides of the cylinder, meaning that the cylinders are reversible and can be fitted any way around. This helps to greatly reduce stock holdings, especially if you supply a range of different sized cylinders.”
Created in accordance with the British Standards KM561977, 1* Kitemarked Sacrificial Cut Euro Cylinders have also been awarded the prestigious “Secured by Design” seal of approval by the Association of Chief Police Officers. These cylinders can be fitted to any external door in order to ward off criminals that attempt to use the most common break-in techniques.
Kevin concludes, “1* Kitemarked Sacrificial Cut Euro Cylinders can be combined with UAP’s 2* Kitemarked High Security Door Handles, which will give security an extra boost and make sure that burglars are unable to gain unlawful access into a property. Combining the UAP 2* Kitemarked High Security Door Handle with the 1* Kitemarked Sacrificial Cut Euro Cylinder will give you a professional-looking 3* security solution for all PAS24 doors. We have also developed a specially-sized 30/35 (65mm) black cylinder, which is the perfect size to use on 44mm door blanks with high security door handles.”
