Titon Launches New High Security Door Cylinder - January 2014
With homeowners looking to increase the security of their properties, Titon has added the new Endure 3-Star anti-manipulation Euro profile door cylinder to its extensive range of hardware. The new product is BSI Kitemarked to the TS007 standard and has the maximum 3-Star security grade, in line with DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) and GGF (Glass & Glazing Federation) requirements.
The Endure 3-Star has a number of security features, including a sacrificial break slot, which is designed to snap off when forced – making the cylinder more difficult to grip if it is unlawfully tampered with. In addition, there is a hardened steel anti-snap protection cradle, complete with crumple zone feature. The product also benefits from a two-way safety cam boasting strengthened fixings.
Available in sizes ranging from 72mm to 110mm, the cylinder has a high security six-pin mechanism (with anti-bump modified upper and lower stainless steel inner pins) and comes complete with five keys as standard. As its names suggests, the Endure 3-Star has been designed to withstand methods favoured by burglars, including drilling, picking, bumping, snapping and plug extraction – the latter via a protected lower grub screw, shielding it from specialist tools.
Commenting on the new cylinder, Tyson Anderson, Titon’s Sales and Marketing Director, said: "The new Endure 3-Star cylinder is a valuable – yet not expensive – addition to our hardware range. Not only does it meet the highest security standards, it can also withstand five types of attack. Using this product will enable fabricators to achieve the important TS007 Kitemark 3-Star rating and Secured by Design approval. Plus, it will provide householders with the reassurance and peace of mind they need to feel safe in their own homes."
The Endure 3-Star comes in a choice of finishes – satin nickel plate or polished brass – while offset cylinders and restricted profiles are also available. Products can be purchased as Double Cylinder, Cylinder and Turn, or Half Cylinder options, as well as Keyed Alike and Master key options.
