New Asec anti-snap range
Asec, a security product brand which is sold exclusively through Aldridge Security, the leading distributors of security products is launching a brand new anti-snap range of cylinders and door handles.
2012 saw the national media highlight the rise of 'lock snapping' burglaries across the country. Criminals using the 'lock snapping' technique apply excessive force and snap the lock cylinder in two. With this increase there has been an industry response to help combat the growing problem.
The new Asec Kite anti-snap range includes cylinders offering a TS 007 1 Star rating, which will give protection and reassurance to end users. The cylinders which are anti-snap, anti-bump, anti-pick and anti-drill are compliant with the BS Kitemark to guarantee quality and safety.
In addition to the cylinders the range includes security door handles which have a TS 007 2 Star rating. When combining the cylinders and door furniture the Star rating increases to 3 Star providing the ultimate protection and ensuring the highest security.
Ainsley Hawkins, Commercial Director of Aldridge Security explains that the addition of the Kite range to the Asec brand will offer customers a quality solution at a price which is competitive to everyone: "It was important for us to produce a product that meets the highest market requirements yet remains both high quality and price sensitive."
The Euro cylinders, which are available in Key & Turn, Half Euro and Key & Key, are compliant to the British Standard BS EN 1303:2005, to offer greater flexibility and increased keying alike options, non Kitemarked Rim & Screw in cylinders are also available.
The British Standard gives the Kite range extra security to help prevent 'lock snapping' and 'lock bumping' as Ainsley explains: "We are extremely excited to be able to offer our Customers both a 1 Star and combined 3 Star solution under the new Asec Kite range of products.
The cylinders provide the highest grade of durability as well as the greatest corrosion and temperature resistance. In addition they are Grade 1 fire resistant making the cylinders ideal for use on fire doors."
