  • TS 007


    Aimed at the security perfomance of replacement cylinders, the cylinder needs to withstand 5 types of attack: drilling, picking, bumping, snapping and plug extraction.

    Door handles, cylinders and cylinder guards are given a 1 star, 2 star, or 3 star rating.  The highest TS 007 star rating is 3 star cylinder which can be achieved by fitting a 3 star cylinder to Kitemarked standard, or by combining a 1 star cylinder with a 2 star handle & cylinder guard.
