Avocet ATK is safe from snapping

Rest assured as the cylinder of the Avocet ATK has a unique system housing two sacrificial sections. If an attacker manages to snap the second section, then the cylinders ‘Lockdown Mode’ is activated. This locks the central cam, making the lock resistant to even the most aggressive of attacks.

After an attack, your home would remain secure from the outside, yet fully operational from the inside with the key.

Avocet ATK beats bumping and picking

The Avocet ATK has special bump-resistant pins nestled deep inside every cylinder, which are specifically designed not to respond to a bump key. Even if an intruder tries to enter your home with a special ‘bump key’ the lock won’t respond.

Avocet ATK defeats drilling

Avocet ATK cylinders have hardened steel anti-drill plates and pins built-in. The plates protect the lock from a drill attack through the key slot, whilst the 6 pins prevent an intruder from accessing the working mechanism at the bottom of the lock.

The Avocet ATK is accredited by Master Locksmith Association with their highest rating – SS312 Sold Secure Diamond, TS007 3-star rating, British Kitemark and Secured by Design accreditations.
