Yale Achieves TS007 3* for AS Platinum Series Euro Cylinder

Yale’s new AS Platinum Series Euro Cylinder has achieved TS007:2012 3*, the security standard developed in conjunction with the Door and Hardware Federation.

The new generation cylinder has been tested to the British Standard BS EN1303:2005 and comes with a 10 year guarantee.  It is also approved by Secured by Design, an official UK Police initiative, which supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’.

The AS Platinum Series Euro Cylinder has four separate lines of defence, enabling locksmiths to offer customers an innovative solution with an unrivalled level of security that will deter even the most determined intruder.

A snap-off front section sacrificially comes away if attacked, meaning there is less of the cylinder to grip, while hardened grip-deflectors make it difficult to get a firm hold.  The cylinder’s hardened reinforced bar is designed not to snap, but to flex in a way that will defeat the vast majority of intruders, and an interlocking cam with strengthening bar provides additional protection on the top section of the cylinder.

Suitable as a replacement product on PVCu, wood and composite doors, the AS Platinum Series Euro Cylinder is recommended for use on doors that require maximum protection against physical and manipulation attacks.  Available in Euro Single, Euro Double and Euro turn options with a choice of polished brass or bright nickel finishes, it is supplied with three keys as standard.
