VBH has added the new Orion 3 star barrel to its family of greenteQ profile cylinders.

Orion is tested to TS007, meaning it offers full protection against drilling, picking, bumping and snapping without the need for any additional support such as a security handle or shroud.

It is supplied with five Q-branded dimple keys for the standard individual cylinders and is available in nickel and brass finishes in key/key and thumb turn variants. Keyed alike pairs and suites are also available. The thumb turn itself features a button that releases the cam from the inside after the interlocking mechanism has activated following a cylinder attack, so that the door can be opened quickly from the inside. 

As well as its 10 year performance guarantee, Orion is backed by the proteQ10 snap guarantee that will pay the homeowner £2000 if the cylinder snaps and allows a break in. This is on top of the Q-secure guarantee that will pay out up to £8000 in the event of an intrusion.
