The Kinetica 3* Kitemarked thumb turn euro cylinder is a combination of the expertise from UAP and Fullex. The 3* cylinder market has been growing over the last 12 months or so with fabricators understanding the consumer need for greater door security without having to upgrade handles or add extra security devices. Fullex and UAP have worked together to try and develop the best value for money 3* Kitemarked euro cylinder on the market.
Part of the UAP Cylinder Guarantee Scheme
We offer up to a £5,000 cylinder guarantee on our Kinetica and UAP+ cylinders. The anti-burglar guarantee means that if a home gets broken into via the lock, and the homeowner has a UAP 3* security combination installed, in the event that their insurance company won’t pay out – UAP will consider a limited liability claim. Please see the brochures and tech sheets section for the terms and conditions of the guarantee, and how to claim.
The cylinder comes with a key fob which includes a serial number. Customers can register the cylinder on our website to activate their guarantee. What’s more, customers will also have access to ‘My Keys.’ This allows the customer to keep a record of their key number and an image, so if they ever lost all of their keys, they can log in to the website and simply take the key number and image to a key cutter to get cut. This will save them the expense of having to replace their cylinder!
The Kinetica 3* Kitemarked thumb turn euro cylinder utilises UAP’s patented timing pin system, and at the same time combines the Fullex anti-snap solution in a very effective product – financially making huge sense for the fabricator. The Fullex anti-tilt mechanism on the Kinetica cylinder is a very clever and a simple notion that they have a patent pending for. Basically, in normal anti-snap cylinders once a cylinder is snapped at the outside end, the inner section is heavier and will tilt allowing the burglar a small gap to gain access to the bolt. The Fullex anti-tilt ring stops this happening – it is surprisingly effective but amazingly simple.
The Kinetica thumb turn cylinder uses a standard keyway which not only means that replacement keys can be readily cut, avoiding a spend of over £20 a time. This also means UAP timing pins can be used which stop cylinder entrapment! Cylinder entrapment is the phenomenon that once attacked, the cylinder cannot be opened on the inside of property thereby causing the occupant the risk of being trapped.
Child Safe System
The UAP child safe system uses a Patented system where the thumb turn needs to be pushed in by the user first before it will engage and open:
It also means that if a strap is put over the thumb turn from the outside, the thumb turn will just spin and not engage and open!
It can be re-pinned as a keyed alike or even master suite range. And uniquely the Kinetica cylinder can even be keyed to the UAP+ 1* cylinder range. If you want for example a 3* communal entry door cylinder, and then a whole series of 1* cylinders on the house doors, we can do it. Likewise if you want a 3* cylinder keyed to a UAP rim cylinder, again we can do it – the options are virtually limitless!
Please Note – 70mm 30T-10-30 Kinetica cylinders cannot be keyed alike to a bigger size Kinetica cylinder due to the central sacrificial cut line. However they can be keyed alike to UAP+ 1* cylinders and TL cylinders with a 25mm external side (30mm side if you measure X/X). 80mm+ size Kinetica cylinders can all be keyed alike together, and can key alike to UAP+ 1* cylinders and TL cylinders if it does not have a 25mm external side.
The 3* Kitemarked thumb turn euro cylinder is available in satin nickel, polished brass and polished chrome. We believe that the market really wants a full finish euro cylinder. We know that the dual colour cylinders save stock space, but we don’t personally think that a polished brass handle looks good with a silver/chrome cylinder that has a brass plug. The industry has spent years producing and refining colour matched door furniture, and we really don’t think people want to throw that out of the window just to save some shelf space!
3 Star Solution
If you are looking 3* security solution for PAS24 doors then you need to look no further. The Kinetica thumb turn euro cylinder is 3 star rated, meaning that it can be fitted to PAS24 doors without the need for 2* handles!
