VBH has unveiled greenteQ Q-Star, its TS007:2014 1-star rated profile cylinder. Q-Star is the latest addition to VBH’s own greenteQ range and sits alongside Gamma, the company’s standard 6 pin anti-drill product.
Q-Star was previewed at April’s FiT Show and VBH advise that it met with a great deal of approval from fabricators and installers.
The cylinder features effective protection against bumping, picking and drilling, and is designed to be used with a 2-star door handle to provide full 3-star protection to TS007. VBH will be introducing a greenteQ 2-star handle later this year.
Both sides feature a sacrificial break point to hamper attempts to gain entry by snapping and extracting the cylinder. The key will still operate the cylinder after snapping at these points, giving the user the opportunity to gain access to the dwelling while a replacement is arranged.
Both ends are marked with the greenteQ ‘Q’ mark and a star to clearly denote it as a TS007 1 star approved cylinder. The side of the cylinder is also stamped TS007:2014 and with the VBH item number to aid identification as a TS007 product.
Each cylinder is supplied with 3 keys with an attractive Q-branded black fob.
Marketing Manager Gary Gleeson says ‘Unlike some cylinders, both sides of Q-Star include all the security features. This means that the fabricator needs to stock just one product regardless of whether the cylinder is being fitted to an inward or outward opening door. Those who have seen Q-Star love the look and feel of the black key fob, and agree that it reinforces the message to the end user that Q-Star is a quality product.’
