Normal, handed anti-snap locks feature a single sacrificial section and focus on strength to make snapping harder. Except the strength is never enough to withstand the force leveraged from a burglar’s mole grips. On each end of an Ultion cylinder there are two sacrificial elements, each designed to snap with relative ease, but more importantly in exactly the right place. When snapped the central cam is directly and independently locked – not to an attackable internal plug.
Underneath the key sit 6 pins. Each of these pins have specific jobs, there are 2 steel anti drill pins, 3 brass mushroom anti-pick pins, and one anti-bump. But then, above the key Ultion is housing a further 5 pins – creating an astonishing 294,000 key combinations.
The moment that Ultion detects forced entry it activates an attack lock directly into the central cam, this is ‘Lock Down Mode’. Even if the most determined intruder gets past Ultion’s two sacrificial sections he won’t get to the attack lock because it is protected deep inside a solid molybdenum core and secured with a dedicated retaining pin. When Ultion is in Lockdown Mode your home and family are safe.
Your door may look great, feel solid, and have a great multi-point lock, but what’s the point if it can be disabled in a few seconds via an inadequate cylinder lock? Here are four reasons why Ultion is different.
When Ultion detects an attack it activates Lockdown Mode. A hidden firing pin in Ultion’s core secures the central cam and stops the intruder being able to open the door.
As well as being approved by the Police and achieving the highest Kitemark star rating Ultion is tested by locksmiths with the Master Locksmith Association and is accredited with their highest standard. Sold Secure Diamond.
Most security locks have only 5 or 6 pins. Ultion uses 11. This means that Ultion creates nearly 3 times the amount of key combinations required for the highest standard.
Both ends of every Ultion lock feature 20 hardened steel pins and plates each one positioned precisely to protect your lock from a drill attack.
