The UAP standard security thumb turn cylinder is created in accordance with the British Standards Kitemark, and also awarded the “Secured by Design” approval by the Association of Police Officers. The high quality 6 pin double Kitemarked euro cylinder can be fitted to any external door in order to ward off criminals that attempt to use the most popular break-in methods.

The thumb turn cylinders have been tested to EN1303:2005 and each cylinder is packed full of security features, and is part of UAP’s super smooth cylinders using the Chris Belcher designed anti-bump timing pin system. This very clever system uses nickel plated hardened steel key pins and driver pins, which gives the anti-drill feature we wanted to incorporate. The Patented timing pins are designed to interrupt the timing of the pins when bumped, and it is highly effective. And because we use special pins rather than trap pins, we do not have a high expense to get this anti-bump feature! The timing pins have inbuilt anti-picks, and mushroom driver pins, which makes them highly effective against picking.

The thumb turn is a special ‘D’ shape. This has been design to make it easier to operate, with better grip and easier turning. This is therefore ideal for people who are elderly, have arthritis or have limited hand movement.

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:

push to turn feature

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!

We have in-house locksmiths which offer you the option to have keyed alike cylinders, or create customised and complex mastersuite systems.
