A brief guide to our cylinders:
MP5 Cylinders – The Eurospec MP5 cylinder range has a standard level of both cylinder security and key security. If this platform is being used for a master key system, it can be installed on up to 400 doors. MP5 cylinders are suitable for domestic and commercial properties, installed on FD30 and FD60 rated fire doors. Euro, oval and rim profile cylinders are available on this platform. These cylinders carry a 5-year guarantee against manufacturing defects.
3 Star Cylinders – 3 star cylinders are tested to TS007:2014 and are BSI Kitemarked – a quality mark for durability, safety and security. Cylinders to this standard are anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-pick. 3 star cylinders offer additional anti-snap protection compared to 1 star cylinders. These cylinders are the most secure rating of cylinder. There is no requirement for additional security hardware to meet PAS24 requirements as a 3 star cylinder provides maximum security.
1 Star Cylinders – 1 star cylinders are tested to TS007:2014 and are BSI Kitemarked – a quality mark for durability, safety, security. Cylinders to this standard are anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-pick. Install a 1 star rated cylinder with a 2 star rated security product, to total the 3 stars required for PAS24 compliance.
The Eurospec MPx6 range offers the maximum level of cylinder security, with a standard level of key security. This cylinder range is tested to A1:2015 and BS EN 1303 cylinder security grade 2, key security grade 5. If this platform is being used for a master key system, then it can be installed on up to 1000 doors. Euro, standard rim and threaded rim profile cylinders are available on this platform. The MPx6 cylinders are also anti-plug pull and anti-twist.
Open Profile 6 Pin – An open profile cylinder range provides the convenience of local key cutting and duplication. Unlike a patent restricted master key system, an open profile cylinder key can be cut by any locksmith, the key blanks are not restricted in their availability.
The Tigris Standard range of 6 pin cylinders may be the entry level range from Access 2 but they are tested to grade 6 of BS EN1303 for both durability and security, has anti-pick protection and can be specified for medium sized master key systems up to 2,400 differs.
Restricted 6 Pin – A restricted cylinder range has an additional tier of security in comparison to an open profile range, as the supply of key blanks is restricted to a particular supplier or company. This limits key duplication or supply to the manufacturer of the cylinders and a selected company. Orders for keys would need to be accompanied by the correct authorisation from the system owner. The Tigris OEM range is a 6pin cylinder range, tested to grade to grade 6 of BS EN1303 for both durability and security.
Patented Restricted – Patent restricted ranges, or cylinder ranges which have patent protection, protect against illegal or unwanted key duplication by having a patent on the key blanks, meaning that only the manufacturer can legally cut additional or replacement keys and only once they’ve received the correct authorisation from the system owner.
The Tigris Premier 3 range has patent protection on the key blank until 2032. These cylinders are anti-pick and have anti-drill protection in the plug and body.
