New Horizontal Keyway
A new horizontal version of our industry leading Kinetica+ K4 3 star cylinder. As an additional security measure, the Kinetica+ K4 Horizontal cylinder has been designed to allow only single-orientation key insertion. This has enabled the in-house UAP design team to create a smaller keyway, making it even harder to attack. The new horizontal keyway has six dimple pins and five laser track side pins, creating the potential for over 13 million differs, and making the lock even more difficult to pick.
Part of the UAP Cylinder Registration Scheme
The UAP cylinder registration scheme gives you and your customers the guarantee that you will never forget to maintain your lock to keep its performance to a maximum.
The cylinder comes with a key fob which includes a QR code. Customers can register the cylinder on our website to activate their registration and Free maintenance updates from us. 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!
Part of the UAP £4,000 Cylinder Guarantee Scheme
UAP offer up to a £4,000 cylinder guarantee on their 3* cylinders. The anti-burglar guarantee means that if a home gets broken into via the lock, and a UAP 3* cylinder installed, in the event that the insurance company won't pay out - UAP will consider a limited liability claim. Click here for more information.
The Kinetica+ K4 Horizontal 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 Kinetica+ K4 Horizontal 3* Kitemarked thumb turn Euro cylinder uses a standard keyway which means that replacement keys can be readily cut, avoiding a spend of over £20 a time. Blank Bio keys are available to approved locksmiths and key cutters only. The locksmith or key cutter will need a key machine capable of copying dimple keys. A standard keyway 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.
The Kinetica+ K4 Horizontal 3* Kitemarked thumb turn Euro cylinder can be re-pinned as a keyed alike or mastersuite cylinder. Whilst it can master keyed it is very limited so only available on smaller projects. It can’t be interpinned between other UAP Fullex and UAP Locking Systems cylinder ranges.
The Kinetica+ K4 Horizontal 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+ K4 Horizontal 3* Kitemarked thumb turn Euro cylinder is 3 star rated, meaning that it can be fitted to PAS24 doors without the need for 2* handles or 2* cylinder guards!
Please note: Doors with Pull Handles - we do not recommend using Kinetica or any 3* cylinder on Doors with fixed pull handles. We recommend using our ZL 1 star cylinder with our 2 star high security escutcheon.

The cylinder has a unique and patented anti-bump system which does not use trap pins. This system makes the turning of the cylinder key extra smooth.
Hardened steel anti-drill pins are in each side of the cylinder. Plus all moving pins are nickel plated hardened steel 50 HRC minimum.
Anti-pick pins in each side of the cylinder makes it extremely difficult for a common burglar to pick the cylinder.
At UAP we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.
With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:
Cylinder Cycle Machine
This sophisticated machine tests the rotational operation of cylinder locks, ensuring a lock will continue to function even after being used in thousands of openings. It replicates the action of a key being inserted into the cylinder and it being turned, just as a product would be operated when fitted into a door. The product is tested to 100,000 repetitions to ensure it continues to function even after thousands of turns. It allows UAP to perform tests in accordance with BS EN 1303:2015 standards.
Cylinder Snapping Test
In accordance with PAS24, the test challenges the security features of a cylinder. An attempt is made to gain access through the cylinder by defeating its protective features, and then applying twisting or bending force to snap the cylinder and access its mechanism. Typically, the handle will first be ripped off, and then mole grips are used to try and make a larger hole around the cylinder. The cylinder is then snapped and attempts are made to turn the cam. A tester has 3 minutes in total to remove all protective hardware and defeat the cylinder, and only certain tools can be used if it cannot be done in this time then the cylinder will pass.
Salt Spray Test
This machine tests the corrosion resistance of the door locks. The salt spray cabinet produces a corrosive environment, by releasing a dense saline fog into the chamber which the door locks are exposed to. This creates an accelerated corrosion of the door lock and allows us to test how well the lock would stand up in harsher environments.
All Weather Machine
When placed in the all-weather machine, the door locks are subjected to conditions including high UV exposure using a Xenon Arc Lamp which will accelerate UV degradation and measure how well a door lock can last in extreme conditions. Other conditions such as rain and extreme heat can be generated by the machine to expose the door lock to all kinds of environments. This allows us to continually improve the door locks and make them so they last longer in all kinds of different environments.
