.The Ultion lock has been tested to the needs of the British Standard TS007 3 star standard, without having to be bolstered with an expensive high security handle. When Ultion is locked it is the actual center cam that gets independantly secured, not secured to the internal plug – this means that even when the key is left on the inside of the lock, Ultion is still secure.
The ULTImate standard that other 3-star anti-snap locks want but don’t get. This is the rigours of the TS007 3-star but with added aggression, and tested by an MLA locksmith. The tester is allowed more access around the lock, more tools, freedom to break the material surrounding the lock and the ability to pause the clock to consider a different tack – Ultion will also be tested to this standard
Underneath the key sit 6 pins. Each of these pins have specific jobs, there are 2 steel anti drill pins, 3 brass mushroom anti-pick pins, and one anti-bump. But then, above the key Ultion is housing a further 5 pins – creating an astonishing 294,000 key combinations.
Debris dropping into the lock jams locks. Ultion keeps itself clean in three ways.
First the keyway is not a gaping hole ready to welcome anything from pocket fluff to small insects. In fact the shape is designed to wipe the key clean at the point of entry.
Also, there are no magnets on the key. This means that damaging metal scrapings from coins and other keys are not carried into the lock when stuck magnetically on the key. Finally, because Ultion has 11 pins (creating 294,000 key combinations) there is no need to create extra deep key dimples for debris to hide and sneak into the lock.
For all the wizardry inside Ultion, all the customer ever does with it is put the key in and turn! Ultion takes the fiddle and dark knight key missing keyhole drama away by giving your customer a guiding recess for the key to quickly find it's location.
pExtra Guard has been developed specifically to meet the TS007 3-Star standard for lock cylinders and has undergone rigorous testing prior to its full approval to the new standard.
To provide a counter measure to, amongst others, the increasing threat of snapping locks, the cylinder itself features several layers of protection. In particular, the cylinder features a sacrificial break slot, which ensures that in the event of the cylinder being snapped, the secure core of the lock is retained within the door preventing forced override of the cylinder.
