Ultion vs. Standard Euro Cylinder Locks: Side-By-Side Comparison

What kind of lock is on your door? Here’s a wild guess: it’s a standard Euro cylinder lock, right? Most home and commercial property owners resort to standard Euro cylinder locks for their affordability. You probably didn’t even consider whether your lock was safe or not when you purchased it. We know that’s how it is, and that’s okay – we’re here to help.

Despite their popularity, standard Euro cylinder locks have important weaknesses that expose your property to easy, quick burglaries. So, if you truly want to secure your home, it’s time to consider replacing your locks.

In today’s article, we’ll reveal where standard locks fall short and how Ultion locks are not only overcoming them but also exceeding expectations in terms of security. All that to help you make an informed decision, so read along.

Burglar’s Best Friend? The Truth About Standard Euro Cylinder Locks

Standard Euro cylinder locks operate by using a key to turn a cam inside the lock mechanism, which then allows the door to be unlocked or locked. However, these locks have several weaknesses that make them vulnerable to burglaries. One major weakness is their susceptibility to lock snapping, a technique where force is applied to the lock, causing it to break and granting access to the property.

Also, standard Euro cylinder locks can be easily picked, which is a very quick & easy way to gain access to your home. These locks are also vulnerable to lock bumping, a technique where pressure is applied to the cylinder using a bump key, causing it to unlock the door. The West Yorkshire Police, for example, does not recommend using standard Euro cylinder locks, mainly due to their susceptibility to break-ins. Overall, those weaknesses make them an attractive target for burglars, hence the need for more secure alternatives like Ultion locks.

Smart, Strong, Secure: Why Ultion Locks Outshine the Rest

Ultion does not play with your safety. Since 2015, we’ve taken the UK by storm with our extremely secure and reliable door locks, handles, and accessories. With our extensive offerings including top-notch materials, extensive testing and accreditations (all of which will be discussed below), we’ve gathered quite a fandom over the years. See our raving Trustpilot reviews and find out what our customers think about Ultion.

One of the reasons why Ultion has become a staple of high-security door locks is the top-notch materials we use. Ultion locks feature a Molybdenum core, making them up to 25% stronger than regular euro cylinder locks. This powerful construction provides exceptional resistance to forced entry attempts because the tools burglars use to break in are not made for such a dense material. That’ll, in addition to our technologies, means your home is safe against lock snapping, drilling, blowtorching, and picking.

Another thing that differentiates Ultion from the ton is Lockdown Mode™. When a burglar tries to tamper with your lock, security pins are fired, making sure that, even if they remove the outermost layer of the cylinder, they won’t be able to remove the rest. They can try, but they won’t succeed.

We trust the quality of our product range, and that’s why: we subject each of our locks, handles, and accessories to rigorous testing. Is the standard testing for door handles 100,000 cycles? Okay. We’ll test it for 1,000,000 cycles. And we’ll give you a 20-year anti-corrosion guarantee. And a £2000 burglary guarantee if you combine a 2-Star handle with our 1-Star door lock. In addition, we’ve ensured our range exceeds the most prestigious accreditations on the market. Our locks have Kitemark, Sold Secure, and Secure By Design Accreditations, meaning Ultion is approved by the BSI Kitemark™, the Police and the Master Locksmith Association.
