Battle of the cylinders: what is 3 star door security?
Published 28.8.2018 in the Blog.
Thinking of upgrading your euro cylinder lock, but unsure where to start? No need to worry - we'll talk you through what to look out for!
Door security that meets a 3 star security rating will provide maximum security from all known methods of forced entry, including cylinder snapping manipulation, picking and lock bumping.
For maximum security, install a cylinder or combination of cylinder and door hardware with a cumulative total of 3 star security rating!
The easiest way of reaching 3 star security is by installing a 3 Star BSI Kitemarked Cylinder.
The Kinetica cylinder is UAP's contribution to the 3 star Kitemarked cylinder market. It combines expertise from both UAP and Fullex. It is Secured by Design Approved, Sold Secured Diamond Standard and has the highest Kitemark rating for cylinders! Now that’s secure!
Having a cylinder that meets the highest standard – 3 star security rating – can provide maximum security from all known methods of forced entry, including cylinder snapping manipulation, picking and lock bumping.
When comparing the Kinetica 3 Star Cylinder to a standard one, there’s a clear winner when it comes to security. Just look at how many more security features the 3 Star incoporates to defend against common lock breaking attacks!
The one sure way to be confident your lock can stand up against lock breaking attack is to look out for the BSI Kitemark displayed on locks that have been certified by the British Standards Institute (BSI). Locks that display the Kitemark can give you the reassurance that each product has been tested to a high standard.
Look out for the Kitemark symbol:
