Every other euro profile cylinder on the market is vulnerable to burglary attack by snapping of the cylinder
Once snapped, the central cam of the door cylinder comes away leaving the internal mechanism of the door lock accessible to the burglar. All other snap resistant door cylinders try to stop the burglar snapping the cylinder. With the forces generated using standard tools such as mole grips or claw hammer we believe it is impossible to stop cylinder snapping. Therefore ABS designed a cylinder to overcome burglary attacks by giving no access to the lock mechanism. The ABS cylinder has a unique technology, that retains the cam, solidly in position once the cylinder is snapped.
The attacker is faced with no way of gaining access to the door lock once the ABS cylinder has been snapped. The Cam is retained solidly and securely in position. The image on the right shows any other cylinder after attack. With all other cylinders you would be faced with a gaping hole giving easy access to the lock mechanism. It is possible, due to the forces generated, to snap all other, so called security cylinders.
ABS is the only door cylinder lock that is genuinely snap secure without the need for additional security devices such as cylinder clamps, guards and security handles, all of which require machining of the door to fit. This makes ABS the only truly retro-fittable product to overcome this attack method. You can upgrade your door with ABS in minutes.
