New Yale 3 Star Platinum Cylinder

3 Star Secured by Design upgrade for Composite and PVCu doors


Shepley lock upgrades now feature the latest 3 Star Yale Platinum Cylinder option on composite and PVCu doors. The all new Yale Platinum cylinder is TS007 3 Star Kite marked, PAS 24 approved and Secured by Design accredited when used with our SBD approved glass options.


In an attempt to keep a step ahead of opportunistic burglars, there’s been big changes in the test requirements for locks over the past year. We’ve also seen new Building Regulation requirements tighten up the security specifications for new housing and extensions with the introduction of Doucument Q.


Secured by Design has been at the forefront of improving enhanced security performance for door sets in the UK and to achieve Secured by Design recognition, the latest PAS 24: 2012 and TS007: 2012 test requirements now mean that a 3 Star cylinder has to be fitted.

There is no compromise when it comes to security with Shepley, view all our hardware and security options.

How the new Yale 3 Star Platinum Cylinder achieves PAS 24 and TS007

As well as providing anti-drill, anti-bump and anti-screw protection, the new Yale Platinum 3 Star Euro-cylinder passes the new British Kitemark TS007: 2012 and PAS 24: 2012. The cylinder features enhanced security:


  • Snap-off front section – The lock is protected against intruders trying to break in by snapping the cylinder. If attacked, the front of the cylinder will sacrificially break away so the would be burglar is left with less of the cylinder to tackle.
  • Hardened grip-deflectors – These make gripping the rest of the cylinder with pliers or grips difficult.
  • Hardened reinforced bar – Designed not to snap, this bar flexes in a way that will defeat the vast majority of intruders.
  • Interlocking cam – This includes a strengthening bar to provide additional strength and protection to the cylinder.

Now available as a Secured by Design upgrade on all REHAU PVCu external doors and the Visage Composite Door Collection. The new Yale Platinum 3 Star cylinder will replace the current Yale Magnum 1 Star.


Yale peace of mind is guaranteed


The familiar yellow roundel on the Yale dimple cut keys offer peace of mind that the lock will do its job. As well as stringent testing, Yale backs up its enhanced security lock with a comprehensive 10 year guarantee to homeowners.


Once their new Visage PVCu or composite door is installed, the homeowner can simply go online and register their new Yale lock.
