High Security Ultion Locks now available!

Have you upgraded your locks yet? Whether buying a new door or securing an older one, enjoy unrivaled levels of home security with Ultion lock cylinders. They are now available with any door!


You would be forgiven for thinking that buying a new door means that your home is more secure. Unfortunately, most are fitted with regular Euro cylinder locks as standard…


Did you know that it can take less than 10 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to a house with standard Euro cylinders? With just a few basic tools, they can snap the locking cylinder, open the door and simply walk inside.


We wanted to make sure that our comprehensive range of doors feature the best and most cost-effective security features – that’s why you can now upgrade any of our composite, uPVC or aluminium ranges with Anti-Snap and Anti-Bump Ultion cylinders!


Even if your door is relatively new, check which type of lock it has. Replacing your standard Euro cylinders with retro fitted Ultion locks is possibly one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to protect a property too.


The hard truths:

46,400 homes are burgled each year…

900  homes broken into through the door each day…

85%  of lock break-ins are by snapping the barrel…

58%  of burglaries happen whilst you are home…

28%  of victims see the intruder in the home…


What makes Ultion barrels more secure?

Intruders wanting to gain access by snapping your lock would have to first try and snap the barrel twice to get to the core. If they manage to get through to the core, the next thing they will then have to contend with a molybdenum core – a metal that is 25% more dense than iron.

Once tampered with, Ultion cylinders will only work from the inside, further securing your home. As standard, barrels come with 11 pins (twice the amount of any normal barrel), hardened steel rods and plates to defend your home against drilling, and a new built-in anti-pick pin.


The keyways are also self-cleaning – each time you put the key in the lock, the contoured design pushes away any dust or dirt before it enters your lock, preventing jamming and making the locks last even longer.
