Do your suited cylinders meet Kitemark requirements?

Yale Door and Window Solutions is now offering a re-pinning service that maintains the British kitemarked accreditation of its maximum security Platinum 3 Star cylinder.

Yale’s Platinum 3 Star cylinder is Secured by Design approved and provides the highest level of security. To achieve TS007:2014 3 Star accreditation it has been independently tested by BSI (British Standards Institution) against known cylinder attack methods.

Paul Atkinson, Sales Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: “Under this new offering, customers who take the Platinum 3 Star cylinder can now have it at our Centre of Excellence for Door Products (Willenhall) under our BSI kitemarked license. This means there is no compromise to the cylinder as it still maintains the superior Yale quality and security.” And more importantly maintains the Kitemark accreditation. If cylinders are suited and re-pinned by non-accredited organisations they no longer qualify as Kitemarked products. 

Delivering multiple benefits to fabricators, installers and homeowners alike, the maximum security Platinum 3 Star cylinder has been designed to protect homes with its anti-snap, anti-bump, anti-pick, anti-drill and anti-pull technology. Available in both brass and nickel finishes, the cylinder has sacrificial break away front section designed to release if attacked, maintaining the cylinder security within the door.

Paul adds: “This new service offers the ultimate convenience to the fabricator, retailer and installer as a feature that the homeowner values. The home owner can use the same key to work multiple locks, whilst still maintaining the 3 star high security that will deter even the most determined intruder.”
