Euro Cylinder Door Locks
The MAX6 Euro Cylinder Locks are the best choice for inexpensive home security installation!
Created in accordance with the Kitemark British Standards KM561977 and also awarded the “Secured by Design” approval by the Association of Police Officers, the euro cylinder locks can be fitted to any external door in order to ward off criminals that attempt to use the most popular break-in methods.
The cylinders have been tested to EN1303:2005, and is also 1 hour fire resistant! Each door lock is packed full of security features, and is part of MAX6′s super smooth cylinders using the Chris Belcher designed anti-bump timing pin system. This very clever system uses nickel plated hardened steel key pins and driver pins, which gives the anti-drill feature we wanted to incorporate. The Patented timing pins are designed to interrupt the timing of the pins when bumped, and it is highly effective. The timing pins also have inbuilt anti-picks, and mushroom driver pins, which makes them highly effective against picking.
The cylinders also have a sacrificial cut line on them. If force is applied to the end of the euro cylinder in an attempt to break the cylinder to gain access, on standard cylinders, the weakest part of the cylinder is the screw hole which is in the centre of the cylinder (as there is less metal here). When force is applied, the cylinder will break away at this screw hole, making it very easy to manipulate the cylinder into opening. On the MAX6 high security euro cylinder locks, the cylinder will break away to the sacrificial cut line only, leaving the locking mechanism intact. If the cylinder is broken at this sacrificial cut line, the last 2 pins in the chamber remain in the cylinder, meaning that the cylinder can still be locks and unlocked with the key. The sacrificial cut lines are also on both sides of the cylinder, meaning that the cylinders are reversible and can be fitted any way around!
