LocksOnline EPS Feature
Today we are going to be looking at our range of High security EPS cylinders and padlocks. These cylinders and padlocks provide excellent levels of security to homes and businesses.
One key area that we specialize in when dealing with this range is the Master keying and Keying Alike, this can be done on the padlocks and cylinders in this range and can be completed initially or over time using your unique references which will be explained in more detail below. We are also able to source extra patent protected keys for you when you need them too. The Keying Alike and Master Key suites are created on site by LocksOnline’s trained team of locksmiths.
The cylinders themselves provide a wide range of additional features and benefits that are not found in older models of cylinders or padlocks. Over the years as cylinders have become more complex and so has the methods of compromising their security, this makes older cylinders even more susceptible to these attacks and should be one of the many reasons to look into upgrading to a system like this. The main bulk of this article is going to focus on explaining key features found in EPS cylinders and why we are trying to shed more light on them as a locking solution
This method uses specialized keys that are designed to fool older pin tumblers into opening. As access to useful information has increased over years with social networking and video networking sites such as Facebook and Youtube so has the distribution of this knowledge to criminals. Not that bumping is a terrible act, escapology is a legitimate art form practiced by locksmiths around the world. The problem is when this bad information becomes widespread in the wrong hands. Our range of cylinders fight against this with more complex mechanical components build into the cylinder itself. This makes bump keys useless when trying to compromise an EPS cylinder.
Snapping is another method, this time more so used by criminals themselves. This process involves exposing the cylinder on the exterior side and literally applying force to snap the cylinder itself. Our range of High Security EPS cylinders fight against this by introducing a stainless steel bar that is built into the cylinder to strengthen it across the length, essentially making this model extremely tough to try and snap.
Our keys and cylinders have patented profiles. This essentially means that when you receive your EPS cylinder or padlock the key reference on your key will be unique to you. This essentially means that nobody will be able to get copies of your keys without your permission. This is especially useful in businesses that have a wide key distribution and need to get some control over the security of the buildings, areas and property. In comparison to normal cylinders these models give that extra layer of protection and security that can only be found in this and the more advanced MCS range.
British Standard EN1303
This standard is a European set of guidelines and criteria for testing security equipment such as cylinders. In order for a cylinder to be eligible to be EN1303 factors such as resistance to physical attacks, overall durability of the cylinder and keys and overall key security. These 3 factors define the attributes of this model perfectly and is another reason why LocksOnline supports and keys these cylinders in house. Cylinders that do not comply with these standards do not provide adequate protection in 2014 against the above types of attacks and we would recommend you do some research and consider upgrading to a system such as EPS.
Comes with 2 keys
LocksOnlines EPS cylinders come with 2 keys as standard and are a part of the patented profile system. These keys will have a unique reference number that only you have. This means that nobody will be able to get extra copies cut without your permission. It also means that we do not physically need a key in order to be able to cut a spare for you as we can use the reference from our secure database to do so.
