HARDWARE “I don’t think I’m going to be able to do it,” says thief » » A REAL-LIFE VIDEO OF THIEVES trying to break through a door with an Ultion cylinder for over three minutes and failing has been posted on the @UltionLock Twitter feed by a happy homeowner. “The two sacrificial sections on Ultion had been snapped and the cylinder had gone into ‘Lock Down Mode’”, explains Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure, which makes Ultion. “The burglars couldn’t get to the attack lock because it was protected deep inside a solid molybdenum.” Amjid continues: “I specifically asked my locksmith for the same replacement lock and I’m upgrading the lock on the back door to Ultion too. I’ve recommended it to all my family and friends.” In fact, Amjid’s locksmith suggested Brisant’s new high security handle Lock Lock, together with an Ultion cylinder. Lock Lock’s seamless, curved, design means it’s harder to remove the handle with mole grips, and it provides an extra layer of security when the internal switch activates the spindle block. Amjid adds: “I can’t recommend Ultion enough. It stopped some scumbags getting into my house and they did their best.” Watch the full break-in video at www. brisant-secure.com/latest-news. www.ultion-lock.co.uk QUALITY COMBINES TO CREATE THE NEW BLUTM CP80 CYLINDER PULL » » INNOVATIVE HARDWARE manufacturer bluTM has combined two of its most popular products – the SE38 security escutcheon and the CP50 cylinder pull – to create the new CP80 – a stunning Euro Profile Inside Cylinder Pull.

Enhanced security comes in the shape of a pressed stainless- steel heavy engineered external escutcheon with an anti-drill outer lock cover designed to resist a snap attack on the cylinder. Wider features of the new CP80 include bolt-through fixings from the inside to prevent removal from the outside, PartQ PAS24 certification, precision engineering and the bluTM ‘super-satin’ finish.
