Kenrick has joined the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA) – the UK’s largest and longest-established locksmith trade association. The West-Bromwich based firm’s TS007 3-star high security cylinder has now been tested and approved by the MLA to combat lock snapping.
Tested to meet the latest security standards of the British Standard Kitemark (TS007 3*), the Kenrick 3-star euro lock cylinder has been designed for those fabricators who want a top of the range door locking solution at a reasonable price, whilst also helping to prevent lock snapping.
The Secured by Design approved cylinder features multiple high security pins to provide maximum security and excellent resistance against the other known cylinder attack methods, including picking, drilling, bumping, pulling and screwing.
Steve Williams, Kenrick’s sales and marketing director, says: “We’re delighted to become a member of the MLA and to be doing our bit to help stamp out lock snapping. With more than 70% of burglars gaining access to a property through a door in a matter of seconds, the choice of hardware for that door is essential. We need to reduce the incidences of these types of crime out and offer far greater peace of mind for the homeowner. Our new 3-star cylinder eliminates any possibility of tampering with the cylinder, making homes much less vulnerable to attack.
“What makes our cylinder special though is that it meets the standards of TS007 on both sides of the cylinder, which means that fabricators only need to stock one cylinder for both open in and open out doors . It’s also compatible with an A1 key blank, so homeowners can easily buy extra affordably-priced keys from the high street if they need to. It is a reliable and versatile solution with no compromises.”
The cylinder is manufactured in a polished brass or a nickel finish and can be easily retro-fitted with no additional preparation. It is available as Paired Alike or Thumb Turn and in all sizes from 70mm to 110mm in 5mm increments. The cylinder has also been tested to 100,000 cycles and comes with a 10-year mechanical guarantee.
The Master Locksmiths Association was established to set and promote high standards of conduct, practice and materials within locksmithing. The Kenrick 3-star euro lock cylinder was tested at the MLA’s Sold Secure test house, which certifies security products through attack testing.
