Door-Stop has achieved the coveted BSi Kitemark TS007 3* accreditation using Yale Door and Window Solution’s high security Superior cylinder and Platinum handle set combination.


The Yale Superior cylinder offers British Kitemarked TS007:2012 1* security and has been tested to the British Standards BS EN1303:2005. Suitable for PVCu, wood and composite doors, this cylinder is Secured – By - Design approved.

When used with Yale Door and Window Solution’s high security armoured Platinum handle set, itself part of a new aesthetically appealing furniture range that has been tested to achieve TS007 2* standards and PAS24, the solution offers the highest level of home security protection in accordance with the Kitemark industry standard.

Nick Dutton, Managing Director of Door-Stop, commented: “Door-Stop customers now have a complete door solution that not only looks great (and stands out in the market) but also achieves the latest and highest security standards to give homeowners real peace of mind. It’s an ideal sales tool for installers.”

“Yale is synonymous with security and complements our reputation for quality and we instantly understood the benefits of a combined security solution to achieve three star accreditation. The Superior cylinder and Platinum armoured handle is a powerful proposition, and with the visual deterrent of the Yale branding would make any opportunist burglar think twice.”

TS007 is the latest kitemarked security standard for replacement lock cylinders and protective door furniture. It was introduced by the Door and Hardware Federation together with the Glass & Glazing Federation in response to the growing concerns that domestic homes are under threat from cylinder manipulation attack.

Says Kevin Hill, Managing Director of Yale Door and Window Solutions: “TS007 is a significant standard for the industry that specifically addresses the vulnerabilities of lock cylinders, which is increasingly being shared by opportunist criminals across the country.

“Yale Door and Window Solutions has worked hard to ensure we can provide the very best solution to achieve the standards and protect homeowners. The Platinum handle acts as an instant warning to burglars, and together with the Superior cylinder, would force any would be burglar to seek easier pickings. The two offered in a new door from Door-Stop provides a front door of aesthetical appeal with the highest level of security.”

Composite doors with the 3* security standards are available now from
