A quick guide on how to measure your cylinder when replacing front door locks.
Kaba’s new innovative lock cylinder meets the TS007, British Kitemark approved, 3-Star cylinder standard.
What is the TS007 Kitemark?*
To effectively protect your door, the Door & Hardware Federation in the UK (DHF) advises that the lock cylinder and door handles on external entrance doors should meet the highest standard, and protect against all the latest forms of attack. The DHF advises home and business owners that their lock cylinders should be upgraded to the TS007 Kitemark standard.
Secured by Design (the Association of Chief Police Officer’s crime prevention initiative) has worked with the DHF and the Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF) to develop the TS007 standard.
Kaba is proud to launch its new pExtra Guard, a product that protects your door from all common types of attack:
> Plug extraction.
pExtra Guard has been developed specifically to meet the TS007 3-Star standard for lock cylinders and has undergone rigorous testing prior to its full approval to the new standard. To provide a counter measure to, amongst others, the increasing threat of snapping locks, the cylinder itself features several layers of protection. In particular, the cylinder features a sacrificial break slot, which ensures that in the event of the cylinder being snapped, the secure core of the lock is retained within the door preventing forced override of the cylinder.
Kaba’s new pExtra Guard expands the range and follows Kaba’s high quality product line into a new generation cylinder, benefiting from several layers of protection built-in to keep the most determined of burglars at bay having undergone rigorous testing prior to its full approval to the new TS007 standard.
