Cusworth Master Locksmiths have created a Guide to TS007 to illustrate the importance of the new standards in the protection against cylinder manipulation and attack.
TS007 is a revised and improved version of the current B.S. Kitemark standard for cylinders, created by the Door Hardware Federation, (DHF) BSI and Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF.)
The standard is utilises a star rating system, where the cylinder alone or cylinder and door furniture must add up to a three star rating to achieve the minimum security for a door.
Master Locksmiths have been working hard to deliver solutions that address security concerns, with retrofit cylinder and furniture solutions which achieve the BSI Kitemark TS007 3* industry ratings.
The security issue of multi point locking weaknesses have been raised by the BBC and repeated in several national TV and radio broadcasts.
