GLAZERITE GETS TOUGHER WITH ABS HIGH SECURITY DOOR CYLINDER
According to trade fabricator Glazerite Windows Ltd all of their Secured by Design accredited doors from now on will be fitted as standard with the TS007 3* Sold Secure Diamond Grade Cylinder from ABS.
The ABS anti bump, snap, pick & drill cylinder also incorporates a unique patented snap secure locking technology which allows sacrificial sections to break off during an attack, leaving the door fully secure but usually openable by key afterwards.
Glazerite Director Jason Thompson said: “These new cylinders not only offer a higher level of security than our previous cylinders but they also qualify for the SBD and Maco Secure PLUS accreditations without the need for a separate cylinder guard or a security door handle.
“We were immediately impressed with everything about the cylinder and from now on they will be fitted as standard to all SBD accredited Glazerite doors and offered as an option on all our other doors. It doesn’t matter how many hooks and bolts your door has, the euro cylinder is the weakest link. Burglars are aware of this weakness and locksnapping break-ins are rising as a result.
“We know from trade and consumer feedback that security is getting higher on householders and businesses’ list of priorities in choosing windows and doors so we want to be sure our trade customers are fully armed to meet and exceed that demand by offering the very best available.”
As well as qualifying for SBD and Maco Secure PLUS, the ABS has achieved a 3 star rating under the TS00:2012 British Kitemark, has Secured by Design Accreditation and is the only retro-fit lock to have attained the Sold Secure Diamond Standard. No other euro cylinder on the market has achieved all of these standards.
