New security report replaces opinion with fact

Brisant’s new Domestic Door Security Report January 2016 presents the most comprehensive and compelling research on security the industry has seen. The report, from the creator of Ultion, the top performing high security cylinder door lock, combines the latest national Crime Survey from the Office for National Statistics with recent national polls of homeowners and independent locksmiths.

The report reveals that 43% of burglaries through doors are by forcing the lock, and in 9 out of 10 forced lock burglaries entry was gained by snapping. In addition, 85% of homeowners said security was the most important factor when choosing their new door.

Brisant CEO Steve Stewart says: “The industry is using out of date and incorrect assumptions based on thirty year old ‘facts’ from small sample surveys and best guesses based on what people believed without much foundation. We decided to commission in two large-scale national surveys of 671 homeowners and 306 locksmiths to distinguish fact from opinion masquerading as fact. We then took the findings from these two surveys and combined information from the National Crime Survey which is regarded as the authoritative source of UK crime statistics.

“We are being burgled. Why? Because we make it easy for burglars and we want to change all that.”

Brisant Secure is led by cylinder lock expert CEO Steve Stewart. Steve designed Brisant’s range of innovative, premium quality, top performance cylinders, which have been widely accepted by the locksmith market and now making rapid in roads to the replacement door market. Having previously run ABS and designed Avocet’s ABS lock, many consider Steve the leading cylinder lock designer in the UK.

In an industry that relies on £3 Euro cylinders, standards and guidelines are complicated and often confused, so installers are misled as to the real security they are selling, and homeowners think they are more secure than they are. Brisant wants to change that.

Sold Secure Diamond testing has no rules. All cylinders are tested using any and all means known to breach cylinders. There is no time limit to how long a trained MLA locksmith can have to dissect the lock. If the lock breaks, it failed. If the lock isn’t breached by any attack, it is awarded Diamond status. Cylinders that have achieved this rating are truly the locks that lock.
