Key Storage and SecurityMarch 27, 2018
Thames Valley Lock and Safe recommend the Avocet ABS Cylinder range to secure your home and business. 74% of burglaries are through a door, So how does ABS Protect?
Patented Active Cam Technology
The clever locking system of the Avocet ABS® diamond grade cylinder knows when it has been snap attacked and fires into action to create a robust barrier to entry.
The patented Active Cam Technology™ is hidden deep within a solid Molybdenum cam which is 20% stronger than steel, and delivers ultimate resistance against a lock snapping attack and snap/twist manipulation.
All of the snap technology is focused on the outside part of the lock only. This makes sure that maximum strength is given to the inner part of the lock – the part that has the job of securing your door.
Two Sacrificial Break Points. The external (outside) part of an ABS® lock has two sections that will break away if an intruder attempts to attack the lock. If the first section is removed your ABS® key can still be inserted into the lock to safely open the door. If the second sacrificial section is removed the ABS Active Cam Technology will fire into action to lock off both the cam and access into your home! 16 Anti Drill Pins, The ABS® lock is packed full of anti-drill pins to totally secure the cylinder against drilling.
Lock Bumping and Pick Protection.
First of all its important to note that lock bumping and picking are skills acquired by locksmiths with years and years of experience – And in our experience are not used by the opportunistic burglar.
Lock bumping is a method of entry that uses a modified key which is tapped with a rubber mallet or tool to make the pins jump to the shear line within the cylinder – the result is quick and quiet access.
ABS has an advanced magnetic anti-bump and double pin within pin system which effectively stops lock bumping keys from opening the lock.
