Mila is claiming a UK-first after its SupaSecure TS007 two-star became the only door handle ever to be awarded Silver status in the Master Locksmiths’ Association’s Sold Secure accreditation scheme.

The award, alongside its PAS24 and SBD accreditation, makes it the most secure option available when used in combination with either a 1-star or a 3-star cylinder.

Part of the strength comes from the fact that the SupaSecure is produced using the same investment casting process used to produce aerospace components, says the company. It has been independently tested to BSEN1906 Grade 4 for durability and corrosion resistance. The design features developed by Mila’s own in-house team include chamfered backplate shoulders which provide anti-grip protection for better mole grip resistance and an integrated cylinder guard visibly raised within the backplate which protects against snapping. There is also a slotted, rotating disc which shields the cylinder completely.

Managing director Richard Gyde said: “If you’re fitting either a 1-star or a 3-star cylinder, the addition of a security handle eliminates any risk of cylinder manipulation. And, if you are adding a handle, why wouldn’t you opt for a proven solution from Mila which has just received such a ringing independent endorsement in our latest round of testing?”
