Two Grand Says This Lock Won’t Snap

As part of its commitment to providing installers with certified solutions that meet the latest security standards, ERA has launched a new 3* Euro profile cylinder supplied with a £2,000 anti-snap guarantee.

Independently tested and certified in accordance with TS007:2014+A2: 2018 and EN 1303:2015, the cylinder has been proven to provide the highest possible levels of protection for a wide range of timber, composite, aluminium and PVC-U door types.

A patented cam design ensures the cylinder always remains locked, unless operated with the correct key. The 6-pin design is anti-snap, anti-pick, anti-bump and anti-drill, providing resistance against the most common types of attack.

Featuring an external snap line, the internal side of the cylinder stays intact, even when the external half of the cylinder is snapped. This ensures individuals can continue to use the cylinder from the inside, even after an attack.


 “The high-performance cylinder, which is supplied with a £2,000 anti-snap guarantee, provides homeowners with complete protection and peace of mind that their property is secure, regardless of the type of door or property type.”

– Kerry Blackford 

Senior category manager, ERA
