Avocet adds to its Break Secure product range

ATK Chrome1Avocet Hardware has added to its Break Secure lock range with the launch of the ATK high security euro cylinder – the company’s second Sold Secure Diamond and TS007 British Kitemark 3-star rated lock.

ATK comes with a standard key, which allows all leading locksmiths to produce them quickly and easily, and end-user registration isn’t required.

ATK utilises Avocet’s patented locking cam system, which is proven to effectively secure against common forms of attack such as snapping, bumping and drilling. It features ten hardened anti-drill pins, and an anti-pick and anti-bump system.

The new range also includes one of the only Sold Secure and Secured by Design rated thumbturn locks on the market. Incorporating Avocet’s new click secure system it makes use of a positive click turn action, which means it can’t be bypassed with the wire tools that make a great deal of other thumbturns a major security risk.

Clive Lloyd, managing director of Avocet Hardware, said: “ATK delivers Diamond standard, TS007 3-star, British Kitemark and Secured by Design grade security against snapping, bumping, picking and drilling. And on top of all it, it also provides a brand new level of protection and flexibility – both in terms of the incorporation of our click secure technology and the fact that it is available in dual colour polished brass/chrome and matt brass finishes with the option of keyed alike and master key suites.”

“It really is an exciting addition to the Avocet range and one that I’m sure will have an immediate and long-lasting impact in the on-going fight against lock-snapping.”

ATK is available in sizes ranging from 30 to 60mm, with 5mm increments for both internal and external parts of the cylinder.
