Carl F Groupco has added an enhanced variation of the Iron Guard 3* Cylinder from Federal to its portfolio.
Features include a patented firing pin mechanism which engages if the cylinder is snapped. Additionally, a trap pin is fired into the plug chamber locking the plug and preventing access in the event of attempted picking or bumping.
Another benefit is that it’s non-handed, says the company; the sacrificial cut features on both the internal and external sides of the cylinder meaning that no matter which direction the cylinder is fitted, there will be the same anti-snap protection. In addition, for locksmiths and repairers, the feature will reduce stock holding requirements.
A horizontal keyway for the secure dimple cut key provides visual security to ward off intruders, as does the Kitemark that’s visible on the face of the cylinder. It comes with five keys and a keycard so keys can be registered and reordered securely. The cylinder has a nickel finish with brass barrel and is available as double, single and thumb turn options as well as keyed-alike pairs.
