Anti-Snap Cylinders

Brisant Anti-snap cylinders

Having spent thousands of hours on research and development, Brisant are the latest players on the market when it comes to snap resistant euro-profile cylinder locks. Offering a comprehensive range of profile cylinders, all Brisant cylinders share the same unique design that makes them incredibly secure and robust against bumping, drilling, picking and most importantly a snap attack. Starting with the E section and with the recent introduction of the TS007 3* accredited, MLA Sold Secure Ultion, Brisant now have four cylinder options available that all work on the same ultra secure, reinforced anti-snap construction features.The only visual differences that customers will notice is in the design of the keys that come with their particular cylinders. The unique dimple key design also offers a high level of key security as the key blanks are not readily available to every most key cutters. Here at Drummond Security, we are proud of the fact we have a close working relationship with the team at Brisant Locks and have therefore been approved to supply both the cylinders and key blanks.

ABS Locks with Anti-Snap Cylinders

As the vast majority of new build homes and replacement doors in the UK now come fitted with multi-point lock mechanisms as standard, there is a huge increase in the use of euro profile cylinders, particularly in uPVC doors. This style of cylinder has an inherent weakness that thieves have increasingly been able to exploit, and with all the recent publicity by the BBC this problem has rapidly increased.

In as little as 13 seconds an intruder can get past a euro profile cylinder lock with simple DIY tools. Many manufacturers have attempted to combat this with snap lines and strengthened bars, but the vast majority of these do not stop a snapping attack.

Drummond Security has a solution to this problem: ABS locks which can protect your home from compromise by a snapped lock.

ABS Locks with Patented Anti-Snap Technology

The ABS Snap Secure Lock is the only lock available with a patented snap secure technology which will effectively lock the central cam in place. The ABS snap secure technology blocks access to the door lock case and totally blocks a snapping attack. In addition to its snap resistance, the ABS lock’s cylinder boasts a full array of the very latest security features required to combat all known forms of attack. Whether it’s drilling, bumping or picking ABS has proven to be the best cylinder lock on the market.

In fact, ABS has been subjected to some extreme testing and is proven to combat against both lock snapping and bumping attacks. ABS has achieved a 3 star rating under the TS00:2012 British Kitemark, has Secured by Design Accreditation and is the only retro-fit lock to have attained the Sold Secure Diamond Standard. No other euro cylinder on the market has achieved all of these standards.

It is also the only standalone cylinder to achieve the new BSI TS007 3 star rating for security hardware – the new British standard which tests the enhanced security requirements for replacement euro cylinders.
