The ASEC KITE security handles for front doors with multipoint locks boast a whole host of security features, and the manufacturer has been awarded PAS24 / Secured By Design approval on these handles, as well as granting 2 stars under the new TS007 standard. This, coupled with a 1-Star TS007 cylinder will give you a complete 3-Star TS007 rating. As a preventative method, the manufacturer has thought to stamp the Secured By Design mark in a very obvious location, at the top of the handle. This is a great deterrent as any thief will know what this means, and will be far less likely to break into a home they can visibly see is a security conscious one. Much like having an alarm box on the outside of your house.
As part of their dedication to offering the best quality and security, the manufacturer has successfully achieved Secured By Design accreditation on this

This backplate also houses a rotating anti-drill cylinder shield to protect your cylinder against drilling.
The cylinder guard aspect of the external handle accommodates up to 15.5mm of cylinder body (excluding the slight protrusion of the keyway/barrel itself), so ideally your cylinder will project 15mm off the face of the door on the external side, for optimum use of these handles.
Another simple yet affective preventative security method that has been worked into the design of these handles, is that the backplate is slightly chamfered, which works as an anti-grip solution to prevent the use of mole-grips or clamps being used to circumvent the additional layers of security that these handles provide.
While security is important, so are aesthetics when it comes to the front door of your home, so these front door handles are available in White, Gold and Chrome finishes to suit the majority of door styles out there.
