Nationwide Windows was quick off the mark when Mila launched its new anti-bump 1 star BSI Kitemarked cylinder at the end of 2021.
The Rugby-based fabricator switched to the ProSecure cylinder for all its composite and PVC-U doors, pairing it with Mila’s popular 2 star SupaSecure™ stainless steel security handle to provide trade, retail and commercial customers with a simple route to maximum 3 star TS007 security compliance.
Mila’s new enhanced security 1 star cylinder is accredited to PAS24, TS007 and Secured by Design and comes with the added reassurance of the Kitemark which guarantees that quality and performance is tested and audited regularly via an independent 3rd party.
For Nationwide, the 1 star/2 star combination is a practical and good value option, particularly suitable for its new build and social housing refurbishment contracts. It offers maximum security compliance, but still gives residents the option to order any additional keys quickly and easily from any high street locksmith.
Daryl Cashmore, Nationwide Windows’ Operations Director, said:
“For us, this is a solution which works across all our markets, where PAS24 and Secured by Design compliance are pretty much standard requirements now.
‘Buying both the cylinder and the handle from Mila means we get top quality products which are designed to be fitted together, a range of handle lever options and finishes, and guaranteed continuity of supply.
“Mila became our hardware supplier of choice in 2018 and since then they have lived up to all our expectations. Quality and service is great and, even during last year’s supply chain crisis, they didn’t let us down.”
The addition of the Mila ProSecure 1 star TS007 cylinder to Mila’s range means customers now have three levels of choice when it comes to cylinder security, depending on the application and price point. At the top of the range, there is the Mila ProSecure 3 star anti-snap cylinder, which meets the Master Locksmith’s Association coveted Sold Secure Diamond Standard, in the middle is the new enhanced security ProSecure 1 star cylinder with anti-bump technology, and, at entry level, there is Mila’s ProLinea BreakSafe™ cylinder.
