Here at Clearview, we pride ourselves in bring our customers the highest quality aluminium doors and windows on the market, which is why we also offer the Avocet ABS cylinder lock with our doors to help secure your home and give you peace of mind. The ABS lock is designed specifically to guard against attempts to snap or bump the cylinder, which if successful would allow criminals to enter the garage/home.
Recently featured on the BBC programme Watchdog Test House, the ABS lock passed the most stringent tests, giving the lock a TS007 British Kitemark 3-star rating. In our opinion, the ABS lock is far and away the most secure retro-fit European cylinder lock on the market.
In fact, when considering that it is also the only lock of its kind to be given a Sold Secure Diamond rating, as well as attaining the Police Secured by Design approval, the notion that the lock is the most secure on the market might actually be considered to be fact.
The Avocet high security lock is therefore proven to be an effective way of combatting break-ins, and we would recommend upgrading your existing cylinder lock to accommodate it in order to increase the level of security in your home.
Why is the ABS lock so secure?
Its patented locking camshaft completely bars access to its lock case, making it distinct from other supposed ‘anti-snap’ cylinder locks currently available.
The lock is the only lock to have passed all three of the aforementioned security tests and has been used in joint council and police ‘hardening projects’, to make areas that have been subject to high numbers of break-ins more secure. In fact, the lock is now the lock of choice for Leeds City Council, with over 10,000 of these locks now installed in homes in East Leeds.
Consequently, the area has seen a dramatic reduction in the number of burglaries, with the lock actually eradicating burglary altogether in areas where it is commonly installed.
