5 Reasons To Fit An APECS AP Cylinder


When it comes to euro cylinders, you should want the best quality cylinder you can afford. People often don’t realise how easy it is for would-be thieves to break into a property that is only protected by a standard euro cylinder, so in this article we’re going to take a look at 5 reasons to fit an APECS AP cylinder.


The APECS AP is a BSI KM 3*, Sold Secure Diamond Grade cylinder, making it the most secure cylinder available on the UK market. Having first been released into the UK market in 2018, we have continued to make improvements to the cylinder to meet our customer’s needs.



1 Anti Snap Protection


Lock snapping, or cylinder snapping has increasingly become one of the easiest and most common ways that burglars are gaining entry to properties. As the name suggests, lock snapping involves someone literally snapping the lock inside your door. Once the lock has been snapped, the thief can then manipulate the lock to open the door. Lock snapping doesn’t require any fancy tools and can be done in seconds, without making too much noise.


For this reason, it is hugely important to have a lock which offers anti-snap protection. The APECS AP euro cylinder features our patent pending anti-snap technology which means that even if someone does manage to snap the cylinder, they would not be able to open the door from the outside, but the homeowner would still be able to exit the property by unlocking the door from within.


2 Quality That Lasts


The APECS AP euro cylinder has been built to last and we’re so confident in the locks durability and build quality, that we offer our customers a 10-year guarantee. We are one of the few companies who manufacture their own cylinders in their own factories – with most of the other cylinders you find in the UK coming out of the same factory. This allows us to have greater control over the process from start to finish and also allows us to constantly update our cylinder with new security features.

3 APECS Key Secure System


With our APECS AP euro cylinder, customers will also be able to take advantage of our industry leading APECS Key Secure system. With this, customers can protect their key with a password, meaning that no unauthorised copies of their keys can be made without this password being provided.


APECS Key Secure adds an extra layer of protection to an already high security cylinder by ensuring that customers have complete control over when and where copies of their keys are made.


Our customers' security is at the forefront of what we do and with APECS Key Secure, we are able to offer superb peace of mind to all APECS AP owners.



4 Complete Protection For Your Home


Not only does the AP cylinder provide anti-snap protection, it also features anti-pick, anti-drill, anti-bump and anti-plug extraction technology. All of these features in combination with the cylinder being fire proof mean that you won’t find a more secure euro cylinder available on the UK market.


5 Highest Certifications Available


When it comes to the certifications available for euro cylinders within the UK, the APECS AP has reached the highest levels possible. The APECS AP euro cylinder has passed both BSI Kitemark 3* and Sold Secure Diamond Grade testing, showcasing the high quality and high security protection that this lock provides.


When you fit the APECS AP, you know that you are fitting a high security cylinder that has been built to withstand the tests of time.
