Recent testing has reportedly revealed that Kenrick’s Standard Euro profile cylinder is one of the most ‘robust and secure’ cylinder options available in its class.
,The cylinder, which has been successfully tested in accordance with BS EN 1303:2005 by Exova in Warrington, not only passed the tests with flying colours but also received several top results. The cylinder comfortably achieved 100,000 operations during cycle testing and attained a premium result for corrosion resistance with a 96 hour salt spray test rating. It also achieved an overall grade 3 for key related security.
,Steve Jones, managing director at Kenrick, said: “We’re delighted that our Standard cylinder has passed this testing, which underlines the genuine quality and durability of this product. Sales volumes of our cylinders have been excellent this year and there is no sign of this slowing down. This accreditation, together with the wealth of choice and value for money that this range offers, really delivers to a sophisticated and demanding marketplace.”
,There are more than 80 cylinders in Kenrick’s collection, which spans three levels of security – Standard, Security and High Security.
,The collection of Standard six pin cylinders is available in all popular sizes. Options include half cylinders, key-key and key-thumb cylinders. The Security collection includes six pin anti-pick, anti-bump and anti-drill cylinders, which meet the standards of TS007 and KM 544418 and are SKG 2 star rated.
,Kenrick’s top of the range High Security six pin cylinders are anti-pick, anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-snap when used in conjunction with the Kenrick RASP Anti Snap system. The KM 544418 accredited cylinders have been designed to achieve a minimum SKG 2 star rating and are available in a number of sizes. Every cylinder in the range is available in a polished brass or nickel finish.
,The Kenrick RASP Anti Snap system has also been in house tested at Kenrick. It sustained a 14 minute attack using all the tools used for PAS 24 as well as additional tools which are available to any burglar but are not currently used in PAS 24 testing. Kitemarked against ‘lock bumping’ by BSi (BS3621) and successfully tested against physical cylinder attack by to BSi PAS024, the Excalibur RASP is also approved by Secured By Design.
