For years the hardware industry has battled with the problem of cylinder snapping, bumping and plug extraction – but ERA is first to market with an indestructible cylinder. It’s called Invincible.
Not only is it designed to withstand the rigours of a prolonged, sustained attack – it comes with maximum certification in the form of British Kitemark, BS1303:2005, PAS 24:2012 and also meets the requirements of TS007 3 Star Accreditation. But from the fabricator and retailers point of view, it gives the ultimate unique selling point when it comes to securing the home owners interest in a new door.
ERA Marketing Director Will Butler explains why Invincible will shape the way cylinders are judged: “as an industry we’ve developed lots of solutions to cylinder attack but if we’re truthful all the solutions only really put sticking plasters over the problem. We recognise that to truly eliminate the issue we needed to redesign the cylinder itself – so that’s exactly what we’ve done. Central to our ethos at ERA is giving our fabricator and retailer customers the opportunity to really differentiate their door offering – and that’s what Invincible does. We’re convinced that Invincible will really drive innovation once again in this sector and force every hardware manufacturer to really address the cylinder challenge – but in the meantime, it’s our fabricators that will benefit from this significant innovation.”
Features and benefits of Invincible:
- The ‘squared’ off cylinder shape has five times more metal than a standard Euro cylinder at its most vulnerable point – this alone makes snapping and breaking impossible.
- High security hardened 6 pins for anti-pick, anti-drill, anti-snap and anti-bump resistance
- Compliant with all security standards including – TS007 3 Star Accreditation, BS1303:2005 and PAS24: 2012.
