New 3 star cylinder from Kenrick

Kenrick has expanded its cylinder range with the introduction of a new 3 star high security cylinder. Independently tested to meet the latest security standards of the British Standard Kitemark (TS007 3*), the Kenrick 3 Star cylinder has been designed for those fabricators who want a top of the range door locking solution at a reasonable price.

The new Secured by Design approved cylinder features multiple high security pins to provide maximum security and excellent resistance against the known cylinder attack methods – picking, drilling, snapping, bumping, pulling and screwing.

Steve Williams, Kenrick’s sales and marketing director, says: “With more than 70% of burglars gaining access to a property through a door, the choice of hardware for that door is a very important decision for any homeowner. Sadly, the number of attacks on doors is increasing because intruders can quickly and quietly manipulate the cylinder and gain access to a property – typically in less than 15 seconds. We need to stamp this type of crime out and offer far greater peace of mind for the homeowner. Our new 3 star cylinder eliminates any possibility of tampering with the cylinder, making homes much less vulnerable to attack.

“The real beauty of our cylinder though is that it meets the standards of TS007 on both sides of the cylinder, which means that fabricators only need to stock one cylinder for both open in and open out doors . It’s also compatible with an A1 key blank, so homeowners can easily buy extra affordably-priced keys from the high street if they need to. These great features have already enticed two major fabricators to Kenrick because they wanted a reliable and versatile solution with absolutely no drawbacks.”

The cylinder is manufactured in a polished brass or a nickel finish and can be easily retro-fitted with no additional preparation. It is available as Paired Alike or Thumb Turn and in all sizes from 70mm to 110mm in 5mm increments. The cylinder has also been tested to 100,000 cycles and comes with a 10-year mechanical guarantee.

The company has a proud heritage spanning more than 200 years, having been established by Archibald Kenrick who manufactured buckles and livery fittings.

Company Overview For

Archibald Kenrick

Archibald Kenrick & Sons Ltd was founded in West Bromwich in the Black Country in 1791 and has occupied the same site ever since. During the Industrial Revolution, the business became one of the country’s foremost cast iron manufacturers, something which continued for over 150 years. In the late 1940s, technological advances meant that Kenrick modernised rapidly, introducing new manufacturing techniques such as die-casting and injection moulding. Similar but evolved techniques are still used by Kenrick today.

Kenrick currently offers a variety of products for the furniture, door and window industries including castors, locking systems, handles and hinges. The majority of these products are either made on site in West Bromwich or at their overseas factories to a high standard. The design and innovation is carried out by Kenrick’s own experienced team.

In 1990, Kenrick became part of the Spire Group. It remains committed to investing in research and development, modern production techniques, new product launches and plans significant expansion over the coming years
