The Ingenious DUPLEX MPL and APECS AP cylinder are covered under the AI Secure Guarantee, and provide class leading performance in terms of operation, and more importantly, security for you and your family.

The guarantee will take effect from the date of receipt of the attached registration form which must be received by us within 14 days of installation or within 14 days of the move in date for new build properties.

The total compensation package of up to £5000 will be the maximum amount payable in full and final settlement of any successful claims towards any uninsured loss as well as the new door supplied and installed.

The guarantee will be deemed invalid if any modification, repair or alteration to the products has been made by a non-approved service engineer and without our consent.

  • Only one claim shall be made per registrant during the guarantee period.
  • A Home Insurance premium (content insurance) must be in place and is to be registered in the name of the claimant (registrant) of the Product Guarantee.

  • A cheque (or equivalent) up to £5,000 sent to the registered householder to compensate for the inconvenience of the break-in for the uninsured loss and the replacement of the door (or equivalent cost)
  • If the break in to the property is judged to have occurred due to the failing of any other component on the window or door (for example broken glass or a broken PVCu panel), none of the above benefits will be applicable
