Beat Christmas Crime with High Security Hardware from UAP

Published on 8 November, 2018 | Latest News

UAP Limited is encouraging fabricators to prepare for the festive period with its range of home security products.

With the clocks going back and Christmas just right around the corner, our homes are at their most vulnerable in the coming weeks. They are left empty, often for days at a time, as we shop, socialise and take the opportunity to visit family and friends.

The darker evenings provide the ideal cover for thieves while presents nestled under the tree or placed conveniently in the hallway are the ultimate temptation, so it’s little surprise that burglaries, thefts and robberies are increasing over the Christmas holidays.

Recent figures show that robberies rose by 20 per cent from 770 in 2015/2016 to 918 in 2016/2017. Analysis of 2016 crime statistics also show that during the festive season an average of 448 burglaries, 65 robberies and 1,082 thefts are committed each day.

With this in mind, here are our top three products for building a high-security door, one which will help secure a house and keep a home safe over Christmas and beyond!

 

1. Kinetica 3 Star High Security Double Euro Cylinder

The Kinetica 3 Star Kitemarked Double Euro Cylinder secures a home against snapping, bumping, drilling, picking and tilting. Providing maximum security against cylinder attack, it’s already proving popular with consumers as they look to improve home security. It is also the ideal addition to a product portfolio, as it offers greater door security without having to upgrade the handles.

The Kinetica High Security Double Euro Cylinder is independently tested and British Kitemarked TS 007: 2014 + A1:2015 3 star accredited. It is also Secured by Design approved and Sold Secure – Diamond Standard.

 

2. Fullex Crimebeater

Widely specified, the Fullex Crimebeater is a proven and respected multipoint lock. Engineered for security and long-term reliability, the Crimebeater is independently tested tested to PAS 24:2016 standard and approved by the UK Police Preferred Specification initiative, Secured by Design.

Cycle tested to 100,000 operations, the Fullex lock is adaptable with three deadbolt and latch or two hook, deadbolt and latch variants available in 20mm 304 stainless steel or 44mm wrap around aluminium white powder coated.

For maximum security, the Crimebeater lock can be used with the Kinetica 3 Star Kitemarked TS007 cylinder.

 

3. The Soterian TS008 Letterplate

The Soterian TS008 letterplate combines practicality, suitability and sleek appeal with security. Tested to 20,000 cycles, the Soterian has been designed with security in mind. A pivoting stay mechanism reduces the opening of the internal flap and guards against common attack methods and ‘fishing’ – a theft technique where keys are removed from the house through the letterplate.

The internal flap has also been designed to project just 35mm from the door surface, staying within the straight line from the hinge side of the door to the handle. This slim design and unrestricted door opening makes it an ideal choice even for narrow entrances and hallways.

It conforms to PAS 24:2016 and is Approved Document Q. PAS 24:2016 is now mandatory for all applications wishing to meet the Secured by Design standard.
