HARDWARE&SECURITY WAGING WAR AGAINST ‘SNAPPING’ Asec, a security product brand which is sold exclusively through Aldridge Security, the leading distributors of security products, is launching a brand new anti-snap range of cylinders and door handles to the market in early 2013. 2012 saw the national press (BBC News) highlight the rise of ‘lock snapping’ burglaries over the country. With this increase there has been an industry response to help combat the growing problem. The new Kite anti-snap range includes cylinders offering a TS 007 1 Star rating, which will give protection and reassurance to end users. The cylinders which are antisnap, anti-bump, anti-pick and anti-drill are compliant with the BS Kitemark to guarantee quality and safety. In addition to the cylinders, the range includes security door handles which have a TS 007 2 Star rating. When combining the cylinders and door furniture the Star rating increases to 3 Star, providing the ultimate protection and ensuring the highest security. Ainsley Hawkins, Commercial Director of Aldridge Security explains, “The cylinders provide the highest grade of durability as well as the greatest corrosion and temperature resistance. In addition they are Grade 1 fire resistant making the cylinders ideal for use on fire doors.” Tel: 08444 125 101, E-mail: lucy.hosking@aldridgesecurity.
