UAP ZeroLift® Advance – The next generation of super smooth cylinders

UAP+ ZeroLift Advance Euro CylinderWe have been busy over the past year working with renowned Locksmith Chris Belcher developing the next generation of super smooth cylinders.  We are now pleased to announce the launch of the UAP ZeroLift Advance.

The new BSi Kitemark TS007:2012 1 star cylinder, which will replace the current UAP ZeroLift euro cylinder, offers extra security and a super smooth turning action. The UAP ZeroLift Advance uses a revolutionary system of timing pins; these control the physical timing when a cylinder is bumped. This system provides us with an anti-bump cylinder that does not contain trap pins. ... read more >

UAP’s 3 Ways to 3 Stars

Adding high security to your doors doesn’t have to cost the earth. We have devised three affordable ways in which you can achieve the important TS007:2012 Kitemark three star rating with Secured by Design approval.

The three star security rating was developed by Glass and Glazing Federation and Door and Hardware Federation in response to thieves using more sophisticated ways of breaking into doors which have been broadcast on the internet. The Kitemark gives individual products a one, two or three star rating. These products can then be used on their own or combined to achieve three stars. ... read more >

UAP CYLINDERS NOW AN OPTION FOR BORG CUSTOMERS!

We are pleased to announce that Borg Locks now offer our UAP+ Zero Lift Cylinder as an option with their Key Override Gate Locks. This is great news for us as we have enjoyed a good working relationship with Borg Locks for the past six months since we became the master distributor for their digi-locks.

UAP became Borg’s master distributor in the UK in January when UAP Managing Director David Jennings decided we needed to take on a high quality digi-lock range to coincide with the opening of our trade counter. Borg has the best product in the industry, with the key models in their range having a patent anti tension plate, so it became obvious that they were a perfect match for UAP. ... read more >

LOCK SNAPPING – The Cat is out of The Bag

UAP+ Zero Lift

Has the BBC created a new market opportunity for security cylinders?

Last month the BBC programme Inside Out featured a lengthy documentary on Lock Snapping and general cylinder vulnerability. My view of this is well known as I believe it was irresponsible and the people behind this release to the BBC were not motivated by concerns over the public’s safety but just motivated by pure greed.  The question of cylinder vulnerability has now been featured on 5 Live, Local Newspapers and we are advised it will feature heavily nationally on 19th March on BBC’s The One Show. ... read more >

UAP’s Zero Lift Cylinders

 

kitemark-logoThe British Standard Kitemark is one of the most recognised quality and safety symbols in the world and offers true value to consumers. And at UAP, we are now proud to announce that our Zero Lift Cylinders have been awarded this standard, making them the cheapest Kitemark range on the market. 

 

The Zero Lift range passed EN1303:2005 testing, and the BS3621 General Vulnerability Assessment. Following their success in testing, the cylinders were approved by Secured by Design for the Police accreditation scheme. The cylinders have now been tested by the BSI group, and they meet all relevant British, European and International standards and specifications. This is definitely something worth shouting about as Kitemark reassures manufacturers and customers that vital performance requirements have been met with a visible confirmation of quality. ... read more >
