The new Kitemark tests uses additional security testing, which has added to the previous tests, i.e. BS EN 1303:2005 also BS 3621:2007 and PAS24:2007*. The new tests added “lock snapping” criteria, which now is the most popular method of burglars gaining unwarrented access to your home or business.
All Euro profile cylinders and some security products will now be classified by the TS007 British Kitemark with the use of a 3 star rating system.
You can use a 1 star euro cylinder with two star door handle to make a three star locking system.
