Those strict BSI people do full security testing. And yet more security testing (PAS024), because we know not every admirer of your home has good intentions.
We asked the BSI to pretend to be burglars. Short of dressing up with stripey jumper and swag bag, they try the security of your door with crow bars, sledge hammers, credit cards and other tools of destruction.
Then they swing a 30 kilogram ball into the door in nine different places to check it will stand up to shoulder barge.
We’ve tested the security and durability of our composite door again and again. At the end of boot camp, your door is awarded with one of the BSI’s highest accolades, a BS6375 & PAS024 award. That proves your door is ready to live your life – and keep you safe and secure.
Having a door fitted will not always guarantee the latest security. Burglars are pretty good at finding the weak points, but with the Door-Stop ERA lock it’s so difficult to break in to that in the extremely unlikely event it does happen we offer our Secure guarantee.
Register your door with us here (or by post) once it’s fitted. Then in the unlikely event you have a break-in because the door lock has been broken, complete a claim form with your crime reference number and we’ll begin the process of replacing your door - FREE - along with £500 compensation.
We offer seven lock mechanism options – the Yale Lockmaster, the ERA Vectis, Winkhaus Trulock, Fab n Fix II, AV2 "Slam Lock", the Avocet and Yale YS170.
And now you can have any locking system with any furniture suite - so it's even easier to get the lock and security you need with the furniture you want.
The Ultion cylinder is one of the most secure on the market - so much so infact that no test has beaten it. The cylinder has passed all major British standards test for security without the need for cylinder protectors or extra secure door handles. These tests include the highest TS007 standard (3 star) and the extended Sold Secure Diamond test, which is more rigorous and designed by the Master Locksmith Association.
No test has beaten the Ultion lock.
The moment that Ultion detects forced entry it activates an attack lock directly into the central cam, this is ‘Lockdown Mode’.
Even if the most determined intruder gets past Ultion’s two sacrificial sections he won’t get to the attack lock because it is protected deep inside a solid molybdenum core and secured with a dedicated retaining pin. When Ultion is in Lockdown Mode your home and family are safe.
Yale’s Superior cylinder and Platinum handle combination is accredited with the coveted TS007 3* BSi Kitemark - the most secure available for composite doors and locks, introduced by the Door and Hardware Federation with the GGF as an answer to vulnerable cylinders.
The cylinder has been subjected to extensive tests and is one of the most secure cylinders on the market. It's anti-bump, drill, pick, tamper, torque and force resistant. It will withstand attempts to saw, wrench, corrode or even burn it out - in fact it can resist anything the most determined burglar can throw at it. It is still all of that, except now it's branded with the Yale name and we’re sending it with 5 keys - as standard.
The Platinum handle is available in PVD polished chrome and polished gold which are corrosion resistant, and made of marine grade stainless steel - the highest available. The cylinder is Kitemarked to TS007 1* security and the armoured Platinum handle to TS007 2*, giving the door/lock combination the 3* standard.
The ERA cylinder free lock is our latest high security option. With a traditional mortice key the door doesn’t need a euro cylinder because the key engages directly with the multi-point lock. No cylinder means no risk of the door being opened by a burglar snapping, bumping or manipulating the cylinder. The lock edge of the door is then completely wrapped in a 3mm powder coated aluminum strip, top to bottom and front to back creating a seamless single finish.
Combine the lack of cylinder with the patented interface between the the mortice mechanism and the multipoint lock, the hardened steel anti drill plate and the 2 opposing hook lock configuration - Door-Stop doors with this lock are PAS024 accredited and offers the same level of protection as doors supplied with TS007 3 Star cylinder and handle combinations.
