How do I achieve TS 007 on my doors?

TS 007 is a security standard relating to the door handle and cylinder combination used on a door. To achieve TS 007 status, the combination used must total 3 stars.

A cylinder can achieve either 1 or 3 star classification, where as a door handle can only ever achieve 2 stars.

Therefore, it is possible to achieve 3 star accreditation by combining a 1 star cylinder with a 2 star door handle. Or, just using a 3 star cylinder alongside an unaccredited door handle. See our simple diagram below.

Achieving TS007 is vital in order to pass any door to PAS 24 or achieve Secured by Design.

What is anti-snap, anti-pick, anti-bump, anti-plug extraction and anti-drill?

Anti-Snap – the cylinder has a section or sections, often called a sacrificial cut, either side of the central lock mechanism that will come away if the cylinder was to be attacked from the outside, however leaving the remainder of the cylinder mechanism intact and locked.

Anti-Pick – the top half of the pin stack inside the cylinder are designed to include a mushroom shape or indent. Therefore, if something was used to pick the cylinder it would catch on the pins and prevent the cylinder from unlocking.

Anti-Bump – cylinders are designed to have more pins (generally 6) and a shallow pin stack. By doing this it means that if a bump key was knocked into the cylinder, the pins would not jump up meaning the cylinder could not be bumped.

Anti-Plug/Core Extraction – the cylinder has strengthened steel circlips that hold the cylinder in place so the core cannot be extracted from the cylinder.

Anti-Drill – the cylinder has plates and pins built in and this prevents the cylinder core being turned if the pin stack was attacked by a drill. It is designed to break the drill bit and protect the integrity of the cylinder to prevent entry.

What is BS EN1303?

BS EN 1303 is a British Standard relating to cylinders. It is broken down into 8 digits and ensures that the cylinders are tested to the highest standard. The 8 digits are; Category of Use, Durability, Test Door Mass, Fire Resistance, Safety, Corrosion and Temperature Resistance, Key Related Security and Attack Resistance.

Cylinders are graded based on this criteria.

How to replace a euro cylinder?

Step 1: Open the door and loosen the door handle fixing screws slightly, or remove them and the handles completely

Step 2: Unscrew and remove the cylinder fixing screw

Step 3: Put the key in the cylinder and slightly turn it until the cam tongue is aligned, once this is aligned you can pull the cylinder out, (generally the key will point to around 5 to or 5 past on a clock face)

Step 4: Replace with the new cylinder and then repeat the process in reverse order

When would I need a free movement cylinder?

A free movement cylinder allows a key to operate the cylinder even when there is already a key inserted in the other end. These cylinders are for use on emergency exit door lock kits such as the FUHR 870 and 871. This function ensures that when the panic bar or panic lever is pushed the cam will rotate freely and allow use at any time.

This type of cylinder is also recommended for use with the FUHR 881 Electromechanical Door Lock.

How to measure for a replacement euro cylinder

Step 1: Measure the overall length from the bottom part of the cylinder

Step 2: Measure from the centre screw hole to each end, these two measurements combined should be equal to the overall length


Step 1: Measure from the centre screw hole on the door lock to the face end of the cylinder on each side, these two measurements will be equal to the overall length
